The Penn State Berks Freyberger Gallery will present the exhibition Travels and Journeys by Nancy Sarangoulis, which features the artist?s latest work inspired by her artist residency in India, from January 16?March 20, 2014. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, January 16, at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
While paintings, drawings, and found objects reinvented for a new purpose have traditionally been the hallmarks of Nancy Sarangoulis? artwork, a recent residency to work with artists and craftspeople in India provided the artist with another link to her artistic journey that includes explorations with automatic art, dream-like imagery, and quiet meditation.
?Painting birds is one of my current interests,? says the artist. ?Not real birds, but birds that are metaphors, psychologically and spiritually. These visual notations have now ?leaked? into all aspects of my work.?
Sarangoulis explains that art, for her, is like oxygen. ?One thing leads to another; everything is connected in its own small way,? she explains.
The Freyberger Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Marilyn Fox, Gallery Director, at 610-396-6140 or via e-mail at [email protected].
