Elizabeth Kleberg

During the month of January NPR, WVTF, RADIO IQ and New City Arts will present "Reiterations of a New Landscape" - a multi-media installation involving drawing, photography, and light projection by Elizabeth Kleberg at the WVTF and RADIO IQ Studio Gallery and the empty storefront adjacent to WVTF. 

In the WVTF and RADIO IQ Studio Gallery, Elizabeth will exhibit drawings, sculpture, and photography. In the adjacent space to WVTF, the artist will create a temporary, large scale installation involving sculpture, light, photography, and projection. 

Elizabeth has exhibited in previous Charlottesville temporary galleries, including the 2010 Center for the Study of the End of Things when the Balkan Bistro space was an empty storefront waiting to be torn down. Her most recent solo exhibition as a UVA Aunspaugh Fellow Artist, “No Deep Shadow, No Utter Darkness,” was held at the Ruffin Gallery in 2011. She also exhibited with her husband, Matt Kleberg, in a collaborative installation, “In All The Vast and Lonely Reaches“, at The Garage in April 2012.

Elizabeth’s new work includes shapes, rooted in invented abstractions, that become characters when reintroduced to the natural landscape. The “reiterations” were conceived by the process and language of painting, then reduced to drawn structures in negative space. The strange figures prompt a new experience of an otherwise familiar space.

The WVTF and RADIO IQ Studio Gallery is located at 216 West Water Street, Charlottesville.
