Sept. 27 – Nov. 3 Art Exhibition – Source Materials: Collage and Paintings by Joan H. Ranzini
Beverly Perdue Art Gallery, John Kenny Forrer Learning Commons
Joan Ranzini, an abstract painter and collage artist in Virginia, will present her latest work. Source Materials refers to how Ranzini develops visual ideas — generating imagery through small collages, then transmitting those ideas into large abstract paintings. The paintings, in turn, become new sources of inspiration. This exhibit of collage and paintings will offer a glimpse into Ranzini’s creative process.

Emily is a would-be writer whose bubble life in NYC has popped. Finding life back home chaotic and unfulfilling, she becomes strangely activated after creating a sassy alter-ego for a radio bit. Told through a playful mixture of live radio, voicemail and phone calls, Today is My Birthday by Susan Soon He Stanton is a quirky comedy about adult life with a thousand friends on Facebook and no one to have dinner with on Saturday night.
