Talk: Wednesday, July 25 at 1:30pm

Fenwick Gallery at George Mason University is pleased to host “Nikki Brugnoli: Convergence.” This exhibition is on display through August 17, 2018, with an artist’s and curator’s talk on Wednesday, July 25 at 1:30pm at Fenwick Library.

Convergence focuses on the intersecting and overlapping lines of artist Nikki Brugnoli’s research over the last four years in Virginia and Pennsylvania. Disregarded, post-industrial structures from her past and present as well as widening horizons converge through a series of mixed media drawings, screen prints and photographs. These investigations are engaged meditations on memory and loss, abandonment and reconciliation.

Nikki Brugnoli received her BFA from Seton Hill University and her MFA from The Ohio State University. She serves on the faculty at George Mason University and is the Assistant Graduate Programs Coordinator and Graduate Advisor in the School of Art. She is also the Coordinator of the Art Lab at the Lorton Workhouse, Lorton, VA, currently serves on the Artist Advisory Committee for the IA&A at Hillyer, Washington D.C., and previously served as a Hamiltonian Mentor. Brugnoli’s work is included in many private collections across the United States, and is featured in national academic and public institutions.

Join them on Wednesday, July 25 from 1:30-3:00pm for an artist’s talk with Nikki Brugnoli and curator Jennifer Lillis. This event will be held in the Fenwick Library Main Reading Room on Mason’s Fairfax campus.
