Paintings by art professor Rosemary Gallick (WO) will be on display at the Manassas Campus through March 28 in honor of Women’s History Month. Called “Wonder Women,” the exhibition features artworks demonstrating the important contributions made by women to American culture.
Portraits of political leaders and popular icons such as Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey are featured. The largest painting, “Women Who Rock,” shows numerous familiar women in the music industry. Two tributes to visual artists are featured: a Georgia O’Keefe portrait and “Homage to Manet.” A mixed-media piece titled “This is What a Feminist Looks Like” asks viewers to examine their own faces in the attached mirror.
The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. The art gallery in Colgan Hall is open 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays, and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
