‘small seas’ 

The Harris Gallery is showing a new exhibit, “small seas” by Liat Yossifor. The exhibit captures the cerebral and figurative elements that seem to emerge from liminal peripheries or subconscious states. The show runs through May 11 with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday or by appointment. Admission is free. 

Student Poetry  

Five students will present their poems at the Ludwick Center Sacred Space from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesday. The poets are Janira Hernandez, Jocelyn Hancock, Geneva Murillo and Kamila De La Fuente, and Shanelle Ruelas. After the poems, there will be Q&A, along with an open mic for those who would like to share.  

‘What You Carry’

An exhibit by artist Sarah Meyer, “What You Carry: A Sabbatical Exhibition,” is open until June 1 at Kellogg University Art Gallery at Cal Poly Pomona. Meyer hiked and backpacked to seemingly forgotten places and observed the cultural stewardship of open spaces. Using only what she can carry, she provides an intimate window into the wild places that connect people to the natural world. Using diffused colors and the written form, the culmination is an interdisciplinary body of work that chronicles the plein air experience and poetically maps Meyer’s internal transformation as a designer. The Kellogg University Art Gallery is located at 3801 W. Temple Ave. Building 35A in Pomona. For information, visit cpp.edu/huntley-gallery
