ENCOUNTER - by Ola Balogun

Ola Balogun is a graduate of Auchi Polytechnic in Nigeria. He engages in issues ranging from political satires to social commentary. "My work presents dramatic enactments of private conversations between individuals concealed in silhouettes. [They reflect the] ephemeral moments in the busy and boisterous metropolis where I've worked and lived. My fascination with these disconnected and culminating experiences inform my vision in these paintings. Beyond their abstract nature, I've incorporated luminous colors, words, and intricate motifs that play with exotic plants and designs found in native prints."

This exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.

 

Wish Granted - by Anita Storino

Anita Storino, an award-winning photographer, will display her altered photography. This exhibit will be in the Center Gallery.

"Often when I open a photo on my computer I wonder, 'What does the SUBJECT want to be?'. In my work, I examine then manipulate the subject to bring out its true spirit - whether it be beauty, mystery, power or solemnity. Working with editing programs, I add a bit of this or take away a tad of that to fulfill my subject’s desire: Wish Granted.”

Eventide - Wade Nelson

Nelson displays his native-Virginian animal paintings this month. This exhibit will be in the Center Gallery.

"Growing up on a small farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains my parents instilled a great appreciation for nature and wildlife. From a very young age I've attempted to express my love through graphite drawings, painting, and sculpture. With the majority of my work I've strived for realism. Recently I've been working toward more expressive pieces establishing a greater presence invoking more emotion and and a sense of the subject. with this series I have attempted to produce a uniformed selection of paintings in style, technique, and composition. Hopefully achieving an overall pleasing aesthetic the viewers will find endearing and perhaps a little magical."
