First art exhibit of the semester opens September 6 at PHCC

This September, Patrick Henry Community College welcomes Richmond artist Megan Zalecki with her newest series of abstract paintings. Her work will be on display September 6 through October 13 in the Walker Student Center Art Gallery in Martinsville. The show culminates with a reception and gallery talk at 1 p.m. on October 13.
As a painter and illustrator, Zalecki creates forms, landscapes, and spaces reconstructed from her memories. She says that she approaches her work with a sense of play and that she explores “the process of painting as a meditative, self-searching act, and through this process, reconstruct[s] memories to invent narratives…”

The PHCC Art Gallery is a space where students and community members can freely appreciate the works of acclaimed artists. Primarily, the space is used to introduce students to the work and technique of successful artists in the surrounding area. The gallery is open to anyone from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Walker Fine Arts Building. Zalecki’s show is the first of several exhibitions planned this year.
