Nancy Palmeri Exhibition at Brookhaven College


Professor Nancy Palmeri's exhibition of recent works opens Friday, 21 March in the Forum Gallery at Brookhaven College in Dallas, with a reception for the artist from 6.00-8.00pm. This exhibition represents her most recent works created during her Faculty Development Leave, spring 2014 semester.  

Palmeri's works act as a sort of oneiric trance, inducing a method of transport between circumstance and imagination.  These drawings consider the repetitive gesture as sine qua non, an essential action or condition. Translating perceptual interior experiences, the drawings interface between the visceral, almost automatic mark-making and cerebral juxtaposition of contrasting images. Exquisitely drawn, these images unravel Palmeri's normally highly embellished, forceful images into a more poetic fragmentation. The works act as an experience between image, artist and viewer, rather than a specific narrative seen in her previous works, recasting the connection from the direct expression to one that lulls the viewer into an altered experience. 

Palmeri's work will be on view from 18 March- 5 April 2014. Brookhaven College is located at 3939 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, TX 75244-4997 , V 972.860.4101, F 972.860.4385 .
