ALEXANDRIA, VA – Today (Aug. 15) The Art League announced the opening of a few exhibits inside their gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. The first is the August 2022 Open Exhibit. The second features the work of Andrea Cybyk and is called “Wild Suburbia.” Both are open for viewing through Sunday, Sept. 4.
The Open Exhibit features 98 pieces, ranging from paintings, drawings, sculpture, glass, and printmaking. It was juried by the Philadelphia-based glass artist Amber Cowan.
“Wild Suburbia” takes its inpiration from the outdoors, specifically gardens. It features a combination of painting and printmaking. According to a press release, Cybyk”finds beauty in the scourge of gardeners everywhere: common weeds. Wild Suburbia celebrates these botanical outcasts—from the petite and humble to the huge and invasive—that thrive in sidewalk cracks, abandoned fields, gravelly roadsides, and other forgotten spaces.”
The Art League is hosting a conversation with her August 21. You can RSVP HERE.
