ARMORY GALLERY

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.

EVENTS

Exhibition of works by artist Liz Fiedorek at the School of Visual Arts’ Armory Gallery this fall! The exhibition, Abstract, opens 5-7 PM in the Gallery on Thursday, October 10th.

 

 

Liz studied Animal Science/Pre-Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech as an undergrad at a time when art classes were open to all. She took full advantage of those opportunities and, with an Art Minor added to her credentials, ultimately made a career in the art world.

 

Artist statement: “Nature is the driving force of my inspiration. I am awed by the purity, mutability and power of the natural world. I try to express this in my photographs. To me the natural world is composed of visual abstractions. My larger pieces often are compared to Abstract paintings. Of late, they are influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Color Field painting and Minimalism.”
