Recent works by the art faculty at the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College will be on display from Aug. 24 to Sept. 25, and a reception to meet the artists is scheduled for Sept. 16 from noon to 1:00 p.m. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
Matt Pinney’s art will be featured in Colgan Gallery with works by other artists on display around the campus.
Pinney is an assistant professor of art at NOVA’s Manassas Campus. While employing many traditional techniques, Pinney creates images that ask viewers to break with their expectations of what a work of art should be. Using different surfaces and contemporary imagery to address the differences between a mass produced image and the singularity of a work of fine art, Pinney challenges viewers to see through a unique aesthetic lens. His choices of materials examine the value and political context of an image, engaging the viewer in both the tactile and visual realms.
The Manassas Campus is at 6901 Sudley Road. Colgan Hall gallery is open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Parking is free at the campus after 4 p.m. weekdays and on weekends. For more information, contact Rosemary Gallick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
