The Moss Arts Center celebrates the life and work of longtime Blacksburg resident Joe Kelley with a survey exhibition of his drawings, paintings, and sculptures. “I am gone, expanding” opens on Friday, Jan. 5, with a reception from 5-7 p.m. in the center’s Grand Lobby.

A much-loved regional artist who forged an inventive artistic path both in painting and sculpture, Kelley died unexpectedly on Oct. 9, 2022, at the age of 55. Bringing together a comprehensive selection of artwork created over many decades, the exhibition showcases Kelley’s vast body of work while reflecting on his artistic sensibilities: intuition and authenticity, humor and playfulness, reflection and reverence. 

The exhibition is co-curated by Kelley’s wife, Dominique Francesca, and Rude Graves. “I am gone, expanding” is the final line of a poem penned by Kelley that contemplates what happens after death.

A new solo exhibition by artist Maria Kapajeva entitled “Hear My Scream, Listen To Their Dreams” opened at Tallinn’s Draakoni Gallery on Wednesday. The content of the exhibition is strongly influenced by the gallery’s location directly opposite the Russian Embassy.

According to a press release, Kapajeva’s aim with the exhibition is to foster a more nuanced dialogue regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, which has led to the continual exposure of harrowing imagery.

Consequently, a process of desensitization has transpired, rendering people less able to empathize with the enduring violence faced by real individuals still fighting for their lives in Ukraine. The intricate details, nuances, and personal narratives have been reduced to easily shareable content that briefly crosses our screens before fading into obscurity.
