Opening Reception Tonight for ODU Alumnus, Faculty Member's Exhibit at Selden Gallery

Work by Clay McGlamory, an Old Dominion University adjunct assistant professor and a graduate of the MFA program in visual studies, will be on display in an exhibition titled "Chromatic Synergy" at the Selden Gallery from June 26 to July 30.

An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday, June 26, at the gallery, located at 208 East Main St., Norfolk.

In conjunction with the exhibition, McGlamory will hold a print workshop Saturday, July 18, during which he will walk participants through his printing process and introduce them to various screen-printing techniques. The participants will collaborate on a print and each will receive a group collage print to take home.

McGlamory, who builds large installations of back-lit screen prints printed with enamel inks on transparent acrylic sheets, takes his imagery from personal photographs of popular destinations such as Times Square and McDonalds. He then disaggregates the photos into a kaleidoscopic image composed of shattered fragments, giving the work a formal sensibility that transcends the visual aesthetics of traditional print media.

McGlamory's work will be paired with the abstract art of John Alan Nyberg, who explores new paint technology with mixed-media and acrylic paint peels to create colorful geometric abstractions. "Chromatic Synergy" is presented by Norfolk's Bureau of Cultural Affairs.

For more information about the workshop and to register, call McGlamory at 450-7544.

The Selden Gallery is located on the second level of the Plume Street end of Selden Arcade and is managed by Norfolk Cultural Affairs. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
