Northwest welcomes visiting artist Andrea Burgay

By Kala Dixon, communication assistant

Northwest Missouri State University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will host visual artist Andrea Burgay and her artwork in “Mining the Ruins: The Library” Oct. 14 through Nov. 15.

The exhibit opens with a lecture at 6:45 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14, in Room 244 of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building and a reception afterward. The exhibit is free and open to the public in the Olive DeLuce Gallery.

Burgay is the founder and editor of Cut Me Up, a participatory collage magazine and curatorial project featuring original mixed-media artworks. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in Genova, Italy; Paris, France; and Warsaw, Poland.

Burgay’s work elevates the overlooked and the mundane through a process of cutting, reconfiguring and unifying a variety of handmade, found and discarded materials.

Her work in the DeLuce Gallery exhibit evokes corroded objects, accumulated piles and forgotten things left to decay. Some are forms spilling into space, others are composed and enclosed, keeping some of their secrets behind the surface.
