Sarah Lawrence College is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of photographs by Yolanda del Amo in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center’s Barbara Walters Gallery.  The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information please call (914) 395 2355 or cstayrook@slc.edu.

The exhibit of Yolanda del Amo’s work is part of a series of emerging artists exhibited during the 2006-2007 academic year. Each artist in the series was chosen by members of the College’s visual arts and visual culture faculty in conjunction with their students.

Yolanda’s photographs of people amidst suburbanesque and private environments are hauntingly quiet.  There is a noticeable tension between the subjects in her work that results in a deafening silence.  On her own work Yolanda states, “I raise questions about relationship boundaries, exploring the tension created by connections and disconnections between people and understanding the physical space where interactions take place as a psychological extension of the characters.”

Yolanda is part of the BAC! 06, Festival de Arte Contemporáneo in Barcelona Spain this November.  Her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad, including the Hudson Franklin Gallery and the Bronx Museum of Art in New York, the ARC Gallery in Chicago, the RISD Museum of Art in Rhode Island, and the Palais de Glace and Museo Juan B. Castagnino in Argentina.  Yolanda’s exhibition at Sarah Lawrence College is made possible with the support of the Consulate General of Spain in New York.
