NEW BRITAIN - â€śRachel,â€ť an exhibition of recent work from artist Chase Westfall, is on display through April 18 at Central Connecticut State University.
The exhibit takes a look at the subject of mourning through investigating expressions of loss and trauma through fictional and factional narratives.
The exhibitâ€™s name comes from the archetype of the mourning mother (the biblical Rachel).
â€śRachelâ€ť includes painting, sculpture, print, photographic and performance work.
â€śRachelâ€ť is curated by CCSU Assistant Professor of Art Layet Johnson.
Westfall lives and works in Richmond, Virginia. His recent exhibitions include â€śControlâ€ť at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art and â€śResist Evilâ€ť at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Fla.
Westfall is a recent recipient of the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art.
Regular gallery hours are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The CCSU Art Gallery is at 1615 Stanley St.
