Drowning House

The works of contemporary artist Amanda Hamilton will be on display in Taylor University's Metcalf Gallery November 8 – December 6. Hamilton's collection, The Life of Perished Things draws from Marilynne Robinson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Housekeeping and is inspired by her family history, including her time living in the stark region of Southern Idaho.

Drowning House (pictured), depicts the Hamilton family’s recent sale of their house and possessions in anticipation of a cross country move from Idaho to Minneapolis. 

Currently an Associate Professor at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minn., Hamilton earned a BS in Drawing and Painting from Biola University in 2000 and an MFA in Painting from Claremont Graduate University in 2004. 

She will be on campus for an opening reception Friday, November 8 at 6:00 p.m., in the Metcalf Gallery.
