About the Exhibit
Geraldine W. Kiefer, Ph. D., Professor of Art at Shenandoah University
The work is at the same time tactile, colorful, historical, imaginative and geographical, as it comprises digital reproductions and hand-drawn artifacts that resemble, but do not in any way replicate, maps from ancient, Renaissance , Enlightenment and modern (19th-century) civilizations. The goal of the work, which continues as an evolving series, is to meld the physical, diagrammatical and the spiritual in sparkling, colorful and, yes, dark mixtures that take the viewer on journeys only he or she can imagine until something magical and mysterious occurs.
