NVCC Features Allison Long Hardy Exhibit

“Daily Drawings” by Allison Long Hardy will be on display in Waddell Gallery at the Loudoun Campus of Northern Virginia Community College through March 18.

Hardy was born and raised in Frederick, MD, and lives in Virginia Beach. She holds a bachelor’s degree in studio art from West Virginia Wesleyan College and a master’s degree in fine arts from Towson University. She has taught at Northern Virginia Community College and the University of Mary Washington.

“When making work, I am interested in the certain moments that communication or lack of communication occur and interpreting those moments through mark,” she stated. “What interests me most is when the marks that emerge on the page overlap and meld with the marks below or on top and create their own type of mark, something that I had not planned. My work is a mix of intuitive and deliberate mark-making paired with the spontaneity that occurs when these marks overlap.”

Waddell Gallery at the NVCC Loudoun Campus is open to the public 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and parking is free in the student parking lots after 4 p.m.
