The Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries will host an opening reception 7-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, for two exhibitions, "The Big Story" and "Kindred Spirits," that open the following day.

"The Big Story: Work by Levent Isik, Ronald Sloan and Derek Webster" will be in display through Feb. 10 in the Baron and Ellin Self-Taught Gallery. Isik, Sloan and the late Derek Webster are artists of different ethnic origins, ages and communities; however, they each create art that encourages the viewer to imagine narratives that are expansive, dynamic and visually compelling. They invite the viewer into specific worlds of fully realized visions, styles and imagery unmistakably their own.

"Kindred Spirits: ODU Art Faculty in Collaboration with the Chrysler Museum of Art" will be in the Changing Gallery through Nov. 17. For this exhibition, full-time tenured art department faculty selected work from the Chrysler Museum of Art to pair with their own work. The selections provide new insight into faculty research and their participation in the contemporary dialogue that is art.

The Gordon Galleries, located at 4509 Monarch Way in the University Village, are open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. For more information call 683-6271.
