Artist's 'Galactic Journal" on display

Abstract expressionist artist Robert Reed will kick off his "Galactic Journal" exhibit at the Bayly Art Museum with a talk April 5 at 5:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153.

The exhibit runs from April 6 through July 8. Reed will also be at the Bayly's First Friday reception April 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Reed, who spent part of his childhood in Charlottesville, works with paint, collage materials and electrostatic images of previous paintings to create abstract images. His new work conveys a vision of space exploration, both inner and outer, and incorporates the school colors of his middle and high schools as well as his undergraduate and graduate universities.

He uses colors from Charlottesville's Jefferson High School and Burley Middle School, Morgan State University in Baltimore and Yale University, where he now teaches, to link his growing-up years in Charlottesville with his training and work as an artist and teacher. 

"The work allows me to document experiences, thoughts, objects, places and people, both in the past and in the future," Reed said.

The exhibition is supported in part by University Arts funds, the Office of African-American Affairs and private contributions.
