  • Sam Krisch: Elements
    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2014-12-04)
    Over the last five years, Krisch has journeyed to remote locations ranging from the Mojave Desert, Greenland, Antarctica, and Bhutan to capture exquisite images of ice formations, the raw force of turbulent waters, or empty expanses of desert landscapes. This exhibition presents a selection of the artist’s digital photographs created between 2010 and 2014 in which his approach to composition verges on the abstract, taking the work beyond documentation into a world of pristine, but daunting beauty.

    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2019-24-01)

  • The Sun That Never Sets: New Paintings by Paul Ryan
    Crutchfield, Margo; Archer, Clover; Kistler, Ashley (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2015-07-09)
    Paintings of abstracted, traced, unfolded packaging cartons as a metaphor for consumption, accumulation, and mindless waste, as well stylized silhouettes of treetops, smokestacks, hands, and other iconic images add layers of subtle but significant socio- economic subtexts to the work.
  • Radcliffe Bailey
    Hicklin, Meggin (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2017-14-09)
    Using found objects, materials, and culturally charged imagery, Bailey layers memory over time to reawaken the past in the present and to illuminate commonalities within the human experience amid a sea of conflicting ideologies and contested histories.
  • Artists and Architecture: Projection/Convergence/Intersection
    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2017-01-19)
    By incorporating architectural images and ideas in their work, the artists in this exhibition engage in collapsing real and fictive imagery, and in so doing, uncover a depth of ideas and perspectives about our world, both past and present.
  • Ray Kass
    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2018-18-01)
    Landscape has always served as a point of departure for Kass; an aesthetic and philosophical inquiry into the essence of nature, and its key element—transformation—and into what ultimately is transient and unknowable.
  • Pia Fries

    Pia Fries is internationally acclaimed as an undaunted and intrepid painter whose exuberant abstract paintings are characterized by audacious color, lush pigment, and a vigorous sense of movement.
  • DATAStream
    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2016-04-02)

    Concannon, Kevin (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2018-29-04)

  • Amy Cutler
    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2016-15-09)
    Amy Cutler’s drawings, prints, and gouache on paper paintings portray a wildly imaginative and enigmatic world in which groups of women, seemingly from an imaginary or bygon era, carry ridiculous loads, weave and braid interminable lengths of hair, and otherwise engage in traditional but essential “women’s work” in utterly preposterous situations.
  • Lynn Hershman Leeson
    Crutchfield, Margo (Virginia Tech. Moss Arts Center, 2016-20-10)
    Hershman Leeson’s art confronts us with some of the most pressing issues of our times—how we will manage not just the opportunities but the terrifying possibilities that technological and scientific advances have, and will have, on humankind.
