WYOMISSING, Pa. — The Penn State Berks Freyberger Gallery is providing art for the community featuring timely issues, such as the coronavirus pandemic and politics, through a series of virtual exhibitions this fall.
The most recent exhibition is titled CONNECTIONS. Fox explains, “Artists who have participated in previous shows were asked to invite the artists who have influenced them, or who they’ve collaborated with or admire, to submit their work. This work is featured in CONNECTIONS.” It can be viewed at https://artspaces.kunstmatrix.com/en/exhibition/3175789/connections
As a follow up to the recent RED, (almost) WHITE and BLUE exhibitions, the gallery presents AMERICAN PIE. This politically motivated exhibition was co-curated by Marilyn Fox, director of the Freyberger Gallery, and Kristen T. Woodward, professor of art at Albright College.

Fox commented on the exhibition, “By just about every American’s perception, our country is at a crossroads. Conflicting political and spiritual ideologies, economic challenges, immigration, and a global pandemic all question what it is to be a citizen of our United States. Great art can hold up a mirror to these pressing issues of our time, reflect who we are, and perhaps who we will become. With these ideas in mind, we asked artists throughout the country to submit their work. Our co-curation reflects selections with an eye towards this moment in time.”
Both exhibitions were created on the KUNTZMATRIX platform, which allows viewers to “move” through a virtual gallery. Exhibitions will also be available on the Freyberger Galley web page as iMovies or virtual galleries. For more information, contact Marilyn Fox, gallery director, at 610-396-6140 or [email protected].
