New York Artist Alex O’Neal To Exhibit In Fayerweather Gallery

September 13, 2000 -- The University of Virginia’s McIntire Department of Art will present mixed-media drawings and paintings by the New York-based artist Alex O’Neal next month. An opening reception will be held Oct. 6, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Fayweather Gallery as part of the First Fridays shows.. The artist will give a slide lecture in Campbell Hall, Room 160, at 5 p.m. on Oct. 5. O’Neal’s work will be on view through October 27th.

His drawings and paintings address American community, especially the American south. Drawn images are combined with collage materials from the 1930s to the 1970s and depict typically American themes, such as the homestead and family, Hollywood, or dramatic landscapes.

In a week-long residency with the U.Va. art department beginning Oct.1, O’Neal will work with students and give individual critiques.

Fayerweather Gallery is located next to the Bayly Art Museum on Rugby Road. It is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends. Admission is free.
