4509 Monarch Way (757) 683-6271 Hours: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday, 1 – 5 p.m. Sunday Experience outstanding works of contemporary and self-taught art in the intimate state-of-the-art Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries located in University Village. Special exhibitions and frequent changes in display of the permanent collection provides something new on every visit to the galleries. Continuing – Feb. 9 Baron and Ellin Gordon Self-taught Gallery

“Woman, Image and Art”

The majority of known, collected and discussed selftaught artists are men. Images of women in culture often express artists’ idealization, ambivalence or wariness – a force to be controlled. The woman may be seen as a seductress leading men to sin and ruin. These complicated roles ascribed to women defy easy explanation. Lewis Smith’s “Three Women” are circus performers demonstrating their skill and strength. Their costumes are form-fitting and seductive. Though strong, they must be feminine and alluring, never masculine or dominating. In contrast, Annie Blandings’ “Barn” portrays couples dancing, rapt in each other. The woman is an adored partner that holds the family together. The drawing itself is pure and ethereal.

Jan. 19 – Feb. 17 Changing Gallery

June 1 – Aug. 11 Changing Gallery

Making and Meaning: ODU Art Department and Chrysler Museum Collaboration Meaning in art can come from recognizable subjects and identifiable narratives, or it can come from the manner and degree to which the artist’s hands have worked the material. In most cases it is a combination of all of these factors, but different works of art emphasize one or another to varying degrees. This show will juxtapose disparate objects in order to highlight thematic and visual connections across time, style and locales.
