NOVA-Woodbridge host first art reception of the Fall Semester

Northern Virginia Community College’s Woodbridge Campus will showcase its first art exhibit of the year, “Material/Method: contemporary practices in painting,” through Sept. 25, in The Gallery of the Woodbridge Campus, 15200 Neabsco Mills Road, Woodbridge.

Paintings by regional artists, Billy Hertz (Ky.), Ryan McCoy (DC), Nikki Painter (Va.), Phyllis Plattner (Md.), Jessica van Brakle (DC), Brent Dedas (Tenn.), Evan Fugazzi (Pa.), James Doiron (Ky.), Jackie Hoysted (Md.), and Chee-Keong Kung (Va.) will show unique levels of experimentations and creativity. Erin Devine, gallery director, said the art show will highlight the responses of painters who invest in the formal capabilities of the materials they use and the singularity of their own inventive methods.

“The artists selected recognize the adaptability of painting to both challenge and provide experimentation in their work, whether in their working methods or in the kinds of materials they are using,” said Devine.  

A reception is scheduled for 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 27 in the art gallery located on the first floor of the Arts & Sciences Building. The exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public. The gallery will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. For further information concerning the exhibition, contact Devine at edevine@nvcc.edu.
