‘Engineered Abstraction’ on display at NOVA-Manassas; meet artist David Levy on Sept. 25

Geometric paintings by David Levy of New Jersey are on exhibit in Colgan Hall at the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College until Sept. 25. Levy will discuss his paintings during a reception on Sept. 25 at 12:15 p.m. in the Colgan Hall exhibit space. The exhibition called “Engineered Abstraction” and reception are free and open to the public.

Levy began painting more than 40 years ago as a Lehigh University student. In August 2012, he joined the Guild of Creative Art in New Jersey where he currently serves as docent and president. His hard-edge style paintings and optical art have been displayed in numerous shows and garnered several awards.

“I love the purity of geometric forms, crisp and elegant line, a few bold colors, and the visual record of brushstroke,” Levy said. “In combining these things, I wish to visually please, provoke and, on occasion, perplex my audience but always to engage them. I want my paintings to provide a kind of visual aerobics for viewers’ eyes, to entice them to repeatedly scan and measure them, but also to discover patterns that help to make the painting seem flat and abstract. I also want my viewers to appreciate the illusion of spatial depth that I suggest. Ideally, the paintings should be understood and enjoyed both two dimensionally and three dimensionally.”

Colgan Gallery is open 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. To learn more, contact Art Professor Rosemary Gallick at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
