Virginia Fleck

Substance & Remembrance
Thu Mar 4, 1999 - Sat Apr 10, 1999

Austin artist Virginia Fleck created sculptures which referenced human comfort, shelter, and survival and drew on her Irish-American heritage. Fashioning sculptures out of discarded household fixtures such as bird-cages, lace tablecloths, and wooden furniture legs, Fleck used mortar to bind together these discards into melancholy images of working-class exile and alienation.

Virginia Fleck had previously exhibited her work at The Austin Museum of Art-Laguna Gloria, Austin, Texas; The Stark Gallery at Texas A.M. University in College Station, Texas; The Slover McCutcheon Gallery, and Rudolph-Poissont Gallery in Houston; and at The Connemara Conservancy in Dallas, Texas.
