VCU Sculpture Students Bring Work To U.Va.

October 1, 2002--

WHAT: Exhibition: “Subtleinterventions”

WHEN: Friday, Oct. 11 through Friday, Nov. 1
Opening reception: Oct. 11, 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery

WHERE: Fayerweather Gallery, University of Virginia

In a gesture of communication and exchange, 11 M.F.A.students in Virginia Commonwealth University’s sculpture program will exhibit their work at the University of Virginia’s Fayerweather Gallery Oct. 11 through Nov. 1.

William Bennett, chair of U.Va.’s studio art program, said it is a wonderful opportunity for students at the two schools to work together. VCU has one of the largest and most respected sculpture programs in the country. “It’s a chance for our students to work with them in two critical ways,” he said. “Our students will be helping with the installation of the works and writing reviews of the artwork for a catalog.”

The exhibit features original pieces created for the show. After visiting the exhibition space in Fayerweather Hall the VCU students decided large sculptures would not fit. “It’s an odd shape,” said Fernando Aidinian-Mastrangelo, curator of the show and one of the VCU artists. “We decided to do smaller, more subtle works that flow well with the space.” One larger sculpture will be installed on the lawn in front of Fayerwether Hall.

The artists will each give a five-minute talk during the opening reception in the gallery on Oct. 11, 5 to 7 p.m.

Fayerweather Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
