Art exhibit at NOVA-Alexandria explores the depth and mysteries of the human psyche


The Margaret W. and Joseph L. Fisher Art Gallery at NOVA-Alexandria presents “Voyage in Tangible Space,” a mixed media exhibition by Mei Mei Chang.

The exhibition is a continuation of Chang’s interest with the depth and mysteries of the human psyche. She creates multilayered and patterned surfaces to describe topographical maps of the mind. Chang employs a rich, symbolic visual language to express her inner world and mindfully bridge the similarities and differences between Eastern and Western cultures.

Chang earned a master’s degree in photography from Ohio University in 2002. She has received numerous awards and residencies, including at the Vermont Studio Center, Great River Art Association, the ARCH Residency at Honfleur Gallery, and second place in the Contemporary South Exhibition. 

The exhibition will be on display from Sept. 6 through Oct. 6. The opening reception is 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and during performances.

Both the opening reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. Parking is available at the Beauregard Street Garage at a cost.

Margaret W. and Joseph L. Fisher Art Gallery, 3001 N. Beauregard Street, Alexandria, VA 22311. The gallery is located on the upper level of the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall & Arts Center at the Alexandria Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.
