The Art Education Program at Old Dominion University is pleased to present a free community lecture and workshop on Saturday Oct. 2nd at 10am at the Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries followed by an afternoon hands-on workshop in the art studio at ODU from 12:00-4:00 with the artist. 

Mr. Gregory Warmack, also known as “Mr. Imagination” is a contemporary, visionary, self-taught artist whose work is an important part of “Collective Wisdom” at the Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries at Old Dominion University.

Mr. Imagination currently resides in Atlanta Georgia.  Mr. Imagination creates art with metaphor, meaning and wisdom.  He uses recycled materials to create original works of art that are personal, whimsical and powerful.

In addition to the free lecture on campus, the ODU students will work earlier in the week in the public schools as part of their ongoing service-learning. ODU students will work with fourth and fifth graders at the Willard Model School; Norfolk Public School.  The workshops with visiting artist Mr. Gregory Warmack will be linked to Virginia SOLs and based on the concepts of community identity and transformations.

An exhibition of work from the workshops will be hosted by ODU Art Education students at Waterside on the second floor at Bridge Deck across from Mayer Fine Art.  An opening celebration is set for Monday, October 25th from 4:00-6:00pm; all are welcome to attend this free event.
