Seven artists in "Wayfinding" include Janice Caswell, Itamar Jobani, Tenzin Wangchuk, Yvonne Jacquette, Nina Katchadourian, Joyce Kozloff and Sandy Litchfield. "These seven artists explore where we are in the world physically, politically, culturally or spiritually, and then map or chart their experience visually," said Gallery Director Elizabeth Peterson. "They use disparate methods and materials - some ancient such as the hand ground and tinted marble dust sand paintings of Tenzin Wangchuk, and some contemporary techniques such as topographical map-like plywood and cardboard constructs of Itamar Jobani. All act as 'cartographers' of memory and experience," said Peterson.
The Akus Gallery is located in the lower level of Shafer Hall at the corner of
