Paintings by Brian Burgess will be on display in Colgan Gallery at the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College from Feb. 2 to March 1. The show features paintings based on Greek mythology.
Burgess is a multimedia artist who likes to create narrative art with epic or mythic subject matter. His journey as an artist began as a student at NOVA’s Loudoun Campus where he earned an associate degree in fine arts. Burgess says his NOVA education provided an excellent foundation for his path as a visual communicator and he went on to earn a master of fine arts degree at Hartford Art School.
Burgess works at the Department of Defense as a visual information specialist and lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia, with his wife, Julia.
The community is invited to learn how Burgess creates his art during a presentation Feb. 24 at 11 a.m. in Colgan Theater at the Manassas Campus. A reception will follow from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in the gallery. The exhibition, presentation and reception are free and open to the public.
Colgan 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. Contact Rosemary Gallick at email@example.com for more information.
