ARMORY GALLERY

 ABOUT

The Art Armory is home to the school’s main office, gallery, and classrooms for Foundations and Drawing. One of Blacksburg’s historic buildings and a former community gymnasium it is situated on Draper Road, a lively intersection of the town and campus. The Armory’s spacious structure, high ceilings, and abundant natural light furnish a striking example of innovative architectural conversion. The Armory Art Gallery is operated as an educational and outreach service of the University. Its exhibition calendar includes work by students, faculty, and artists of regional and national importance. The XYZ gallery, located at 221 N. Main St., is home to the Student Art Association, which operates an independent program of exhibitions by students and local artists. A prominent feature of the Armory is its 1700 sq. foot Mezzanine.

PRIMARY ELEMENTS:
Foundational Works by RAY KASS
Armory Gallery: January 19 – February 16, 2018

As part of a trio of exhibitions, with the Moss Art Center and Perspective Gallery of the work of Ray Kass, the Armory Show presents key transitional works spanning five decades. There are no simple images in the vast archives of work created by this prolific artist. There are however keys, principle constituents that contribute to the more complex, more deeply mined veins of brilliant ore. It is these primitives, the first stages of what become series, that are the focus of the exhibition. Technique, materials, mediums, color: components of a whole oeuvre appear, develop, mature and are incorporated into a sophisticated whole. His observational acuity, combine with the joy of the creation of visceral, tactile, earth-riven images.
