A new exhibition of paintings by Rosemary Gallick celebrates the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. The paintings will be on display until Feb. 1 on the fourth floor gallery at the Woodbridge Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.
The exhibition includes 23 portraits with vibrant depictions of President Obama, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Sonya Sotomayor and other politicians.
“Many of the portraits are embellished with a three-dimensional element that accentuates the lines and adds symbolic value. For example, some individuals proudly wear an American flag pin and the viewer will find a copy of President Obama’s birth certificate neatly tucked in the front pocket of his painted jacket,” Gallick said.
Gallick’s artwork has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States. She has also published numerous articles and presented many discussions on art and popular culture. She teaches art history at NOVA and lives in Centreville.
The exhibition is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays. The Woodbridge Campus is located at 15200 Neabsco Mills Road. To learn more, contact Gallick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-878-5797.
