Gallery Exhibit | Lory Ivey Alexander

When/WhereTuesday, Sep 10, 2019 10:00amHylton Performing Arts Center, Buchanan Partners Art Gallery, Science and Tech

Intergenerational relationships and collective memory are central to this body of abstract paintings. Using bright, fluid colors and Alma Thomas’s signature paint stripe as a universal mark, this work explores the ancestry of art in Washington, D.C. and the relationships between the artist and her foremothers. The bright colors and sculptural paint build a visual tapestry symbolizing the bonds between generations.

Lory Ivey Alexander is a process-driven multidisciplinary mixed media artist exploring history, memory, and identity. Her layered, textural paintings and sculptures are constructed using traditional fine artist materials and found objects. She is particularly interested in exploring stories that have been deemed unfit for retelling.  

Buchanan Partners Art Gallery exhibitions are free and open to the public Tue. -­ Sat., 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and two hours before each performance.
