New City Arts presents "Stations," new works on paper by Alyssa Pheobus Mumtaz in April at The WVTF and Radio IQ Studio Gallery.
Stations is a new series of collages that responds to archaeological remnants encountered in the stark landscape of rural Ireland. By translating the imagery of inscribed stone fragments into anthropomorphic forms, these works meditate on traces left behind by monks, pilgrims and other wayfarers who have passed through remote places.
Alyssa Pheobus Mumtaz is an artist and educator best known for her diverse drawing practice, which incorporates elements of painting, hand-papermaking, collage and textile design. Moving fluidly between symbolic abstraction and representational allusion, many of her recent projects take inspiration from cultural artifacts that reflect systems of belief.
Presented by NPR, WVTF and Radio IQ, and New City Arts, our exhibit opening reception is sponsored by Timbercreek Market in Charlottesville with cheese provided by Flora Artisanal Cheese and Veritas Vineyard & Winery. The WVTF and Radio IQ Studio Gallery is located at 216 W. Water Street.
