"A Feast of Languages" Opens in the Neil Britton Art Gallery

09-12-2016

An opening reception was held Sept. 8 for the Neil Britton Art Gallery's first exhibit of the fall semester. “A Feast of Languages” features works by local artists active in Norfolk’s NEON Arts District and the ViBe Creative District in Virginia Beach. According to John Rudel, Virginia Wesleyan’s Batten Associate Professor of Art and Coordinator of Art Exhibitions, these talented artists have “prepared a great ‘feast’ of artistic riches, created on site, reminding us of the richness which surrounds the campus in its prime location on the border of these creative communities.” The exhibition borrows its title from Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, which explores the power and limitation of language. “A Feast of Languages” will be on display through December 9.
