The Language of Invisibility in Three Parts: A Pop-up Exhibit and Gallery Talk by Veronica Jackson

Sunday, June 10, 2018

Veronica Jackson is new to the region, but her family has long and deep roots in Bedford County. After a career in architecture and museum exhibit design in Washington DC, Jackson decided to reinvent herself and refocus her creative imagination while become a full-time artist. As part of this journey and personal transformation, Jackson returned to live on the family homestead in Bedford County, Virginia which she shares with her mother. Jackson expresses her vision and personal narrative through thought provoking and cutting-edge installations. She weaves together words, found objects, manufactured and newly created pieces to tell stories about race, gender and identity. While Jackson’ work and narrative is centered on deeply personal experiences, these visual memoirs echo universal themes of a search for self, identity and voice. For the pop-up exhibition and gallery talk at Goose Creek Studio, Jackson introduces viewers to three ongoing series of works.
