Modernism, formalism, post-modern; labels for abstract or conceptual work. Categories that help the viewer define or collect what they think is a cohesive language. The miracle is that we understand each other at all whether with words or movement or sound. As a visual artist that creates abstract work I sometimes feel like the long lost twin speaking in the darkness with her own language. It is my job to teach my viewers the language. It is my job to be understood, but that is not always the desire of the work. The work is at times an alien artifact or an ancient relay. It is not a language. We have not agreed to share it.
Reflections, Musings, Outrage, and Bits of Pseudo Pompous life.
This exhibition is a joint effort between the Moss Center and the Blacksburg Regional Art Association in conjunction with the Fine Art Center of the New River Valley in Pulaski and the Floyd Center for the Arts. Every two years the show changes from one of these organizations to the next. This marks the first time the biennial has been hosted by the spectacular Moss Center and the first biennial in Blacksburg since 2013 at Perspective Gallery.
Sixty-four artists from 21 different towns or cities will be exhibiting in the three galleries of the center. These artists were selected from among 389 entries forwarded to the juror.
"Entering Amy Herzel’s gallery I was transfixed. Her works are airy, or even aerie—a secluded and isolated place high up in the sky."
