The Through Road,” a solo show by Rebecca Hamm that also features works from her students Meg Lee, Aedylaine Santos and Shelby Rubalcava, will be on view at Ahmad Shariff Art Gallery, 107 Harvard Ave., Claremont, July 6-27.

“In ‘The Through Road,’ Rebecca Hamm presents paintings selected from works that began on the occurrence of the 2020 global pandemic, when societal systems fell, merged and were reinvented,” read a statement from the gallery. “Hamm translated this chaotic vigor, and observations of the vitality of the natural world, into paintings that intentionally sought irrational steps toward more internal references. In retrospect, they were connectors during that time, and now, continue to move forward with right of way, allowing both ingress and egress, like a through road. Retrospectively, these paintings served as connectors during that challenging period. Now, they continue to move forward, asserting their right of way. Like a through road, they allow both ingress and egress—an invitation to explore the interplay of chaos and resilience.”

An opening reception will be held Saturday, July 6 during the 6 to 9 p.m. Claremont Art Walk. Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
