Cheryl Goldsleger, painter and visual artist, has been appointed the new Morris Eminent Scholar in Art at Georgia Regents University in Augusta starting in Fall 2015. Her solo exhibition Explorations will be on view in the Mary S. Byrd Gallery in Washington Hall on the Summerville campus starting November 5th. She will give an artist’s talk on November 5th from 5:00 to 6:00 pm in University Hall, room 170. A reception in the gallery will follow her talk.
Explorations presents her recent drawings, focusing on the real and ephemeral qualities of space, and her paintings, which include both computer-drawn and produced sculptural elements combined with her sensuously cerebral encaustic surfaces.
Goldsleger has exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia, PA), among many other national and international institutions. Her drawings and paintings belong in numerous museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Harvard University Fogg Art Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the High Museum, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and several other important public and private collections. Her awards include two National Endowment for the Arts Artist Fellowships, a Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art Fellowship, a residency at the La Napoule Foundation in southern France and a US/France exchange fellowship at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris. Her work has been discussed in publications including Art in America, Artforum, Art News and The New York Observer.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Department of Art and Georgia Regents University in Augusta. The talk and the exhibition are free and open to the public. For more information, see www.cherylgoldsleger.com or contact the Department of Art at 706-667-4888 or CCross@gru.edu.
