“The Many Faces of Woman” art exhibit will be on display at Northern Virginia Community College’s Manassas campus in honor of Women’s History Month.
According to a release, the exhibit will showcase art and poetry by Kathleen Stark – a local artist.
“The paintings, assemblages and poetry in this show are about the many faces that women wear. It has taken me 74 years to find out who I am as a woman. My journey began seriously when my son left for college. I finally took time to see myself, not as an extension of someone else but as a person in my own right. Since that time, I have learned many things about the reasons I am who I am and the pieces in this show reflect parts of that journey,” stated Stark in a release.
A reception to meet with the artist is scheduled at the Colgan Hall Art Gallery on March 14 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
According to a release, some of the art is based on events in Stark’s life.
“My work tends to be emotional, expressionistic and quirky. I also try to bring a sense of humor to my work and not take it or myself too seriously. I hope this show will give viewers some insights for their own journey,” stated Stark in a release.
