James Madison University’s ArtWorks Gallery opens the spring 2022 season with Dimensions of Self. Nineteen student artists in the School of Art, Design and Art History use a variety of media and their unique perspectives to reveal their individuality and how they confront expectations about identity and larger cultural ideas. A virtual tour of the exhibition will be posted on the ArtWorks site.

Home Goods at New Image Gallery is a solo exhibition of new works by Iranian-American interdisciplinary artist Rex Delafkaran consisting of mixed media sculpture. A show including but not limited to popcorn ceilings, gold door handles, a Persian carpet and something like “that sawhorse from the garage,” the exhibition is a deliberate combination of readymade and handmade materials that toy with the clashes between aesthetic cultural sameness and personal narrative.

The opening reception for both shows on Feb. 9, 5-7 p.m., is open to the general public and will offer food and drink.

The ArtWorks Gallery is JMU’s student-run gallery, allowing students to express their artistic voice. The gallery provides a space for students to present their work in a professional setting to the Harrisonburg community. The gallery strives to help students create new relationships and encourage unique, out-of-the-box ideas.

New Image Gallery features contemporary photography and new media by professional regional, national and international artists. Both galleries are located in the second-floor loft space of the former Graves Electric building.
