Current Exhibit:

Sub Rosa: Works by Tracy Bradbury

July 24 – Sept. 8, 2018

In Sub Rosa, Tacy Bradbury explores the melancholy glamour that can be found in the interplay between the revealed and hidden aspects of the self.  Bradbury’s work captures the simultaneity of these aspects and the kinetic energy and movement between them. Influenced by Bradbury’s background in dance — and lush with gauzy appropriated images and the intricate elegance of embroidery and floral patterns — modes of creativity converge in her work to invoke an illusion of subdued stillness that obscures the shockwaves of passion that secretly exist, hidden and restless, just below the surface.  Bradbury invites the viewer to question how perspectives change: How do we, in a single encounter, experience that which is presented explicitly and that which is obscured? What hidden beauty does one see that another might miss?  How do we decide what to conceal and what to confess, and when and how to reveal that which is hidden?

Gallery Reception: Thursday, August 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. featuring wines or beer from Otium Cellars, 8 Chains North, and Bald Top Brewing. 

Gallery Receptions are free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required. RSVP to smeyer3@gmu.edu
