Award-Winning Canadian Artist Shows at William Woods

The “Black and White Series” is opening at the Mildred M. Cox Gallery at William Woods University. The work in this vivid art show is by Florin Hategan, a visual artist who was born in Romania and is now based in Maple, Ontario, Canada.

“This project is a polemical discourse upon the disintegration and eventual disappearance of traditional communities,” says Hategan, “a process I am calling Fragmenturalism, derived by combining fragmentation and fracture words.

“One of the particular focuses of the project is the idea of urban functionality in relation with nature, by observing how contemporary urban design affects, remodels and redefines the human communities.”

Hategan has been working in printmaking and oil painting for over 25 years. His pieces have been presented in more than 90 national and international competitions, and have won awards in countries around the world. He has an MSc in Civil Engineering and an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts.

This artist’s work is on display at the Mildred M. Cox Gallery in the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts at William Woods. The show will run from Wednesday, March 1 through Friday, March 31, with an opening reception on Wednesday, March 1, from 4 – 6 p.m.

Admission to the Cox Gallery is free. It is open 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 1 ­– 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
