POP NARRATIVES by Roger McClung

Pop Narratives is a selection of my art work dating from the 1970's and 1980's, works of art that has been stored and put away for some 30 years, an era of experimental works render in mixed media and collage, of a young artist searching for a mature and expressive style in the "now happening" world of art. Some works may be seen as social escapism, comical, eroticism, and cynical-- but all are definitely personal to me. Pop art, for me was not a "slick "visual entertainment of the commercial environment, but an artistic statement of aversion of contemporary times. I no longer do pop art but chose to exhibit this style from a period in my art career to share with viewers because the artistic statements about our culture are still as relative in 2007 as they were some 30 years ago, except we prefer to see the catechisms of today as an aesthetic valve in art Modern and contemporary times with all its new clever inventiveness, wealth, and political dogma have done little to change or improve the social conscience of our cultural rift. We prefer to place merit on the hodge-podge of art today rather than assess the overall artistic quality of the piece. A nameless artist once said, " It does not matter what one paints as long as it is panted well. There is no such thing as a good painting about nothing." Roger McClung

 

Muses: A Tribute to Mature Women Who Live Creative Lives by Carlie Collier

This exhibit offers a focused look at the positive experience of aging shared by many creative, older women. Fully engaged with life, regardless of age, profession or circumstances, they have used the process of aging to become more fully themselves. Muses has been exhibited both locally and nationally and has traveled throughout the State of Virginia as a VMFA traveling exhibition. This showing of the exhibit at Art Works is lovingly dedicated to Mary Ann Brandt, a "muse" extrordinaire.

Carlie Collier has a B.F.A and M.F.A from VCU School of the Ats. She is the recipient of numerous awards, fellowhips and honors including a scholarships.
