Color and Form

April 14, 2018 to May 16, 2018

The Department of Theatre, Art, and Graphic and Animation Design’s post-baccalaureate program (aka the “Working Artist Program”) is designed to provide studio artists a facility, mentoring and additional support to develop a body of work at Longwood University. This program increases Longwood University students’ access and exposure to working artists. It also raises greater cultural awareness and appreciation for art as a viable vocation. Color and Form represents bodies of work created by Lisa Kraushaar, Nick Listo and Emily VanderMey during the 2017/18 academic year.

The LCVA is a 20,000-square-foot exhibition center featuring two rotating galleries that have shown works of worldwide importance, including the award-winning Reflecting Centuries of Beauty: The Rowe Collection of Chinese Art, the nationally traveled Pre-Columbian Art from the Mississippi Museum of Art, and a steady stream of solo and group exhibitions for nationally known artists such as Faith Ringgold, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Lesley Dill, David Macaulay, and Kojo Griffin.

The LCVA also dedicates one gallery to a permanent exhibition of stunning African art, part of the Ziegler and Brumfield Collections of African Art. In 1997 Robert Ziegler, a longtime resident of Africa, established this collection with twenty-six important pieces. In 1999, Thomas and Donna Brumfield donated an additional eighty-eight works of African art. The collection includes an impressive array of statues, masks, drums, baskets, and garments, covering four geographical areas, twelve countries, and twenty-seven cultures. A catalog of this collection, Telling Objects: African Art from the Permanent Collection of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, is available.
