"White Daisy," detail, 2003, by Francesca Fuchs. Acrylic on canvas.

The art department’s visiting exhibit features recent work from artist-in-residence Francesca Fuchs. Colossal, decorative, nostalgic and cold, her flower paintings have a suspicious cheeriness. Icons of their time period, the patterns are taken from bed sheets and wallpaper found in thrift stores. The British artist, who lives in Houston, scans images and digitally manipulates them to filter out extraneous clutter, remix patterns and fine-tune color relationships.

Exhibit at Fayerweather Gallery, through March 5
