NEW GALLERY EXHIBIT OPENS SATURDAY

The Old Dominion University Gallery will open "In the Center Ring: Works of Paper," a one-person show by Robert Sites focusing on the unique character of circus life, with a reception from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Located at 350 W. 21st in Norfolk, the University Gallery will host the exhibition through March 16.

Sites constructs his cast of performers by layering images drawn on a variety of papers to create a fragile world of paper collage. An associate professor of fine arts at Norfolk State University, Sites received a 2001 Virginia Commission for the Arts Fellowship for works on paper, his second individual grant from the organization. He has shown both regionally and nationally for over twenty years and received numerous awards. His most recent solo exhibitions were at Rockville Art Place in Maryland and the Quincy Art Center in Illinois.

The University Gallery is open noon-3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; noon-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. For more information call 683-2355 or go to http://www.metonym.org/studio/odu/.
