Photographs, oil paintings, and other mixed media works contributed by artist Teboho Gladys Anoh are currently on display in the Biblio Gallery, located on the 4th floor of Bird Library. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, February 24th from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Anoh is a graduate student pursuing a dual master’s degree in Economics and International Relations in the Maxwell School at Syracuse University.
Anoh hails from both Cote d’Ivoire and South Africa and has a keen interest in development economics. As a self-taught painter and photographer, she uses her art to advocate for a better quality of life among the impoverished populations of emergent nations. She believes that “Nutrition is a two-sided coin, corporal nourishment being one side of the coin. A soul that goes unfed, like the body, eventually dies. Art therefore is like food to the soul and, as such, must be consumed. If one’s sole purpose is Growth, then a balance between the two must be sought.”
The Biblio Gallery hours coincide with those of the 4th floor; click here for Library hours. The display will be in place through April, 2011.
