‘Virtual Reality Reorganized’ Exhibit at HACC until Nov. 10, 2017
 
HARRISBURG, Pa. – “Virtual Reality Reorganized,” an exhibit of drawings on wood by Denise Stewart-Sanabria, is on display through Nov. 10, 2017, in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Stewart-Sanabria, who holds a BFA in painting from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst, paints hyperrealist “portraits” of everything from produce to subversive jelly donuts. The anthropomorphic narratives often are reflections on human behavior. She also is known for her life-size charcoal portrait drawings on plywood, which are cut out, mounted on wood bases and staged in conceptual installations.

Her work is included in various museums and private and corporate collections including The Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, Tennessee; The Evansville Museum of Art, History and Science in Evansville, Indiana; Firstbank Tennessee, Pinnacle Banks, Omni and Opryland Hotels; Scripps Networks; and Jewelry Television. Her work also is included in the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and corporate offices of McGhee Tyson Airport, both in Knoxville, Tennessee, where Stewart-Sanabria has lived since 1986. She also writes or has written exhibit reviews for various art publications.

Stewart-Sanabria is represented by The Arts Company in Nashville and Atelier Gallery in Charleston, South Carolina.

Gallery hours are Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays 5-7 p.m. or by appointment. The gallery received state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
 
For more information about the exhibit at HACC, please contact Shawn Williams at 717-780-2478 or smwillia@hacc.edu.
