Athens, Ga. – The Circle Gallery at the University of Georgia College of Environment and Design will host the exhibit “Schema: The Work of Cheryl Goldsleger” Oct. 3-Nov. 8. An opening reception will be held Oct. 3 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the gallery.
The exhibit will feature drawings and paintings by Cheryl Goldsleger, who uses drawing and encaustic techniques to look at architectural intricacy.
“Architecture, for me, is an expressive aspect of culture. It reveals how a society is organized and what societal needs are,” she said. “My interests are broad and range from small details to complex plans and from specific sources to imagined spaces. In all of my work, I hope to convey ideas that include the imperfect and poetic within a structured space.”
Goldsleger’s artwork uses actual and envisioned structures and showcases strong spatial relationships and the power of graphic realization.
Goldsleger exhibits in the U.S. and internationally. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, N.Y., the Brooklyn Museum, the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Israel Museum and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Landscape architecture students from the College of Environment and Design will be assisting Goldsleger with the art installation.
