Exhibit Brian Kelley:Tower

Brian Kelley, a Fairfax, Virginia native, is an artist and teacher, who works in painting, drawing, and printmaking.  His work is grounded in direct observation but augmented with invention to create work that is close, but never quite true-to-life.  Recent work for the exhibition, “Tower,” focuses primarily on how architecture forms can encapsulate both the dreams and memories of the people that build them.  Built form implies a cloudy narrative of creation and intention.  Kelley currently teaches drawing at the NVCC Manassas campus.  He regularly exhibits in the DC Metro area and nationally.

Gallery Hours 10-5pm weekdays; 1-5pm Saturday
