Freyberger Gallery presents 'Travels and Journeys'

The Penn State Berks Freyberger Gallery will present the exhibition "Travels and Journeys" by Nancy Sarangoulis, which features the artist’s latest work inspired by her artist residency in India, from Jan. 16 to March 20. There will be an opening reception at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16. This event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.

While paintings, drawings and found objects reinvented for a new purpose have traditionally been the hallmarks of Nancy Sarangoulis’ artwork, a recent residency to work with artists and craftspeople in India provided the artist with another link to her artistic journey that includes explorations with automatic art, dream-like imagery, and quiet meditation.

“Painting birds is one of my current interests,” said the artist. “Not real birds, but birds that are metaphors, psychologically and spiritually. These visual notations have now ‘leaked’ into all aspects of my work.”

Sarangoulis explains that art, for her, is like oxygen. “One thing leads to another; everything is connected in its own small way,” she explains.

The Freyberger Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 pm. on Thursday; and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, contact Marilyn Fox, gallery director, at 610-396-6140 or via e-mail at
