An opening reception was held Wednesday, January 11, for “Real Life/Virtual Life”, a mosaic exhibition by Megumi Naitoh, a ceramic artist originally from Tokyo and currently an associate professor of art at Emmanuel College in Boston. Roman mosaics and their narratives of every day life inspired Naitoh to create a collection of works that represent modern daily life and the life people create on the Internet. Her unique mosaics are pixelated images with two vantage points. She is able to present two images, representing each world in a single mosaic. Through her work, guests will be able to see how the two worlds are intertwined and how easy it is to move from one to the other. The exhibit will be on display in the Talley Gallery through February 15.
