Fleeting: Works by Diane Feissel
On display in the Reynolds Gallery from June 22 to September 10, 2016.
The Memorial Student Center Visual Arts Committee is proud to be present Fleeting: Works by Diane Feissel. Feissel’s series of 38 oil paintings explores the passage of time and the elusive nature of relationships. The pieces display several different styles and subjects but are connected in their theme: the poignancy of capturing a fleeting moment. The exploration of motion, emotion, and longing resonate through the pieces, which have been completed over the past decade. Fleeting incorporates subjects from many different periods in Feissel’s life and acts as a commentary on the ever-changing nature of life.
