Old Dominion University Gallery will open a student thesis exhibition by Anna Velkoff Freeman, titled "Consumed," with a reception at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 18. Both the reception and exhibit, which continues through April 8, are free and open to the public.

Working in mixed media that may include acrylic paint, wood, glass, mirrors, screen print, linocuts and ceramics, Freeman explores the tension between the beneficial and negative aspects of consumption. "The over-consumption that typically makes up our rituals for celebrating health and life," says Freeman, "can result in serious injury - side effects that contribute to a need for medication."

Freeman has been a ceramics instructor for three years at Old Dominion and the Governor's School for the Arts' fine arts department. Her work has been included in exhibitions in Maine, New York, Virginia and Montana. The ODU exhibit marks the final stage of graduate study, culminating in a master of fine arts degree, from the joint Norfolk State University and Old Dominion University program.

The University Gallery, 350 W. 21st St., Norfolk, is open noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
