"Re-Collection" Photographs At Fayerweather Gallery Jog The Memory

April 3, 2002--

WHO: Lucy O’Connell

WHAT: Exhibition: "Re-Collection"

WHEN: April 8-12

Closing Reception Friday, April 12, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Fayerweather Gallery

"Re-Collection" features photographic mementos by Lucy O’Connell, Aunspaugh Fifth-Year student in the McIntire Department of Art at the University of Virginia. This exhibition, ranging from snapshots to cyanotype photograms, focuses on preserving and recreating memory and the compulsion to collect in order to remember.

To the artist, snapshots are the epitome of "re-collections." They are not overworked or precious, but rather candid, simple and, most importantly, numerous. Yet in an ordinary batch you might find a peculiar one, something unexpected, defective and amazing. It is on these mistakes that O’Connell focuses. The photos in the exhibit are delicate collections of impossibility, captured and lost.

Students from the Aunspaugh Fifth-Year program in Studio Art at the University of Virginia will exhibit their work in Fayerweather Gallery at the University through May 29.

Exhibits will change weekly to feature individual artists and their diverse interests, including installation art, printmaking, painting, sculpture and photography. Closing receptions will be held each Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the gallery.
