ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Winthrop University Fine Arts Professor Marge Moody was selected for a solo art show during October at the FRONT Art Space gallery in New York City.

Her work is part of an exhibition, called SMALL15, on display through Oct. 29. A reception will be held Oct. 18. Organizers said SMALL15 reflects a vast scope of art in small-format being made today.

Artists from 24 states and 16 countries submitted entries, and Moody’s work was selected by Guest Juror Margaret Krug and a FRONT Selection Panel in a blind-jury process. Sixteen pieces of Moody’s work will be showcased in a solo show and in a separate three-person show in the gallery.

Director Dionisio Cortes said Moody’s work was the best example of color use and composition within the realm of small works. “Her art exhibited vision, curiosity and fine technique in the pieces submitted,” Cortes wrote.

Moody provided 10 new pieces from this summer, one from a residency in Portugal, four small drawings and two mixed-media pieces from around 2008 as well.

Moody said she makes abstract, acrylic paintings on canvas, collages and mixed-media pieces (including drawing, painting, collage and, at times, printmaking) which, through a rigorous process of working and reworking composition, color, shape, line and texture arrive at a harmonious expression of the essential nature of the subject.

“My work is inspired by my experience of places, distant, close to home and from my imagination,” she wrote in her artist statement. “I work thematically as each experience may suggest many possible outcomes. Subject matter may serve as metaphor for intangible ideas. At various times, my work examines boundaries, addresses the fragility of existence, of presence, of absence and of memory.”

The gallery will make available a SMALL15 publication and online exhibition. Artists participating are from Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.
