CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — An
exhibition-opening and book-signing by local artist Siti Mariah Jackson
will be featured as part of an open house Sept. 8 at the Asian
American Cultural Center and the Asian
American Studies Program at the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The open house, at 1208 and 1210 W. Nevada St., Urbana, will run from
2 to 4 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
The exhibition, “Siti’s Diary,” is a collection of
watercolors by Jackson, which will remain on display through Jan. 5.
It includes portraits, landscapes and paintings from her family and
personal experience in Malaysia. The artist also will be honored with
a reception as part of the open house.
Jackson will be signing copies of the book “On This Island: An
Artistic View of Martha’s Vineyard,” a collection of more
than 75 paintings of the island’s life and people by both the
artist and her late husband, Billy Morrow Jackson.
