Marymount University's Barry Art Gallery will display an exhibit
entitled Uncommon Landscape from January 15 through
February 11, 2010. The exhibit features the work of Wynn Creassy,
Ann DiPlacido, Trix Kuijper, and Joyce McCarten. The
opening reception for Uncommon Landscape is on Friday,
January 15, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend the
opening reception and to visit the exhibition at any time during
its run. There is no admission fee.
The participating artists have selected pieces that share a landscape
theme, but each has a signature style that offers a twist on the
literal image, either through personal interpretation or the use
of different mediums.
- The work of Wynn Creassy, a landscape artist, reflects
the Virginia landscapes of her childhood, which she captures through
the use of brilliant colors and simple, almost minimalist, detail.
- Ann di Placido is well known for her the original designs
of her free-form tapestry and large scale weavings.
- Trix Kuijper's art is reflective of the 20th century surrealism
movement. She takes everyday objects and paints them in improbable
settings that create "an alternative world of immense possibilities."
- Joyce McCarten portrays landscapes through the lens of
abstract art. Using observation, interpretation, and imagination,
she alters the literal to convey her artistic vision.
The Barry Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.,
and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Gallery is located
in the Reinsch Library on Marymount's Main Campus - 2807 North Glebe
Road, Arlington, Virginia.
