Here and Now by Andreia Gliga

February 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am April 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

You are cordially invited to Andreia Gliga’s solo exhibition “Here and Now” which will be on display from February 27 through April 7 at the Waddell Art Gallery located in NOVA’s Loudoun Campus on the first floor of the Waddell Building at 21200 Campus Drive in Sterling, Virginia (or 1000 Harry Flood Byrd Hwy Sterling, VA 20164). The Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 am until 7 pm and is closed on weekends.

The opening reception will take place on Monday, February 27 from 5 until 7 pm.

Andreia Gliga’s roots run deep, fed by the everlasting green of the trees and the hypnotizing “Voroneț blue” named after the Monastery where she spent most of her childhood vacations at her grandparents’ house. Her painting style is pretty wild and her works have only a hint of a realistic, recognizable touch! She considers her lines and her colors an extension of herself and she thinks that any human has the right to interpret life through her or his own eyes, mind and soul! Nothing has one angle, meaning or interpretation!

Born in Suceava, Romania, a city located in the historical region of Bukovina, steeped in culture and heritage, she’s been living in the Washington, DC area for the past 25 years. She spent the past 14 years working both as an art teacher and as a Romanian Target Language Expert with the Department of State’s Office of Language Services, teaching Romanian to future American diplomats.

Andreia had solo and group exhibits in Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia and in Bucharest, Romania. In 2012 she got selected to take part in a competition called Art Takes Times Square in New York where she had her work shown on huge panels right in the heart of the city. That same work was later published in the event’s book.

She loves spending time in nature with her husband, two daughters (the oldest, a second-year Architecture and Design University student and the younger, a senior in High School) and her two dogs! Andreia is currently working on one other future exhibit and looking forward to a wonderful year!

The Waddell Art Gallery’s mission is to educate by providing regularly changing art exhibits with diversity in both media and content. It provides students, faculty, staff and the community an opportunity to enjoy and contemplate visual art. For more information, please visit www.nvcc.edu/loudoun/artgallery/
