PVCC Visual Arts Announces Reception to Kick Off Opening of Two New Exhibitions


Charlottesville, Va. – September 13, 2022 – The Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) Visual Arts Department will host a reception to mark the opening of two new exhibitions in the PVCC Gallery on Friday, September 23, from 5 to 7 p.m. Together, the exhibitions highlight works by student artists, writers and designers and the faculty that teach them. Both exhibitions will be on display through November 5, 2022.  

In the North Gallery, “The Fall Line Retrospective: PVCC’s Literary Magazine Looks Back” celebrates 14 years of creativity and collaboration with writings and artwork from the student-created magazine. First published to highlight the variety and quality of creative writing by PVCC students, The Fall Line grew over the years to include original artwork by art students and design work by students in the Graphic and Media Arts program. Attendees to the reception may pick up a copy of the 2022 issue and enjoy readings from selected works at 6 p.m. in the gallery. 

The South Gallery will display the “Annual Faculty Exhibition,” which features artworks created by PVCC art and graphic design faculty members and offers a look into their creative lives as professional artists outside the classroom. This year, works will include media as varied as oil painting, ink drawing, video animation, ceramics and sculpture. Participating artists include Rebekah Wostrel, Rick Weaver, Jonah Tobias, Jeremy Taylor, Ed Miller, Aaron Miller, Lou Haney, Todd Free, Tom Clarkson and Fenella Belle. 

The PVCC Gallery is located on the third floor of the V. Earl Dickinson Building at the south end of 501 College Drive and is open when the building is open, including all arts performances. Generally, hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
