“NOMA’s March exhibition showcases the installation work of Virginia Sperry and Jim Roberts. The show, titled occupied space, will feature two separate installations, one by each artist.

Sperry’s installation, Filament, takes a common material to a new level of experience. From the detailed, abstract photography of tiny pieces of yarn to the bigger than life waterfalls made from strands of yarn hanging from the ceiling, this installation challenges the viewer’s preconceptions of this medium.

Roberts’ installation delves into the current political milieu with his work, anatomy of a lie. Showing the various stages of how a lie can take form and spread, the piece is a 3-dimensional illustration of the attacking and discrediting of factual information by laying siege to the 4th estate.”

“Group Therapy”

Storytelling: Brunswick Branch of the Frederick County Library system. March 9 through May 31 2020.

“Storytelling” has also been affected by the virus.  The Frederick County libraries are currently closed until further notice. The good news is that  the show will probably be extended through June 2020.

“This show has two elements in it, photography and a sculptural installation. In the children’s section you may or may not be charmed by the woven yarn slugs on the wall over the bookshelves. Made from welded steel frames and woven with colorful yarn, these slugs measure from 3 feet to 7 feet long…and yes, there will be slug slime!!! Sperry has used macro photography to capture charming stories and scenes out of yarn and rusty steel. These photos will be found in the main room of the library. Just ask a librarian to point them out if you don’t find them!”
