The Florida Gulf Coast University Art Galleries of the Bower School of Music & the Arts presents “Juxtaposition: Hevelyn Villar,” with an opening reception and artist talk on Thursday, Feb. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. at ArtLab in the west side of the Wilson G. Bradshaw Library on the FGCU campus.
Hevelyn Villar is an architect, photographer and sculptor who incorporates different construction materials in her work such as concrete, wood, drywall, metal and clay. Through juxtaposition, conversion, inversion, interception and approximation she explores and reveals stillness and movement, light and darkness, and order and disorder. For her exhibition in the ArtLab, she will be transforming the space using sculpture and photography.
Hevelyn Villar graduated in 2008 in architecture and urban planning at the Universidade Estadual de Londrina, in Brazil. She lived in the United States from 2009-2011 where she obtained her master’s degree in architecture at the University of Utah. Back in Brazil, she worked in several architecture firms and teaching positions where she focused in the design and creative process. Recently she has finished a Phd in architecture at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul where she investigated notions of order, formality and clarity in architecture.
Since 2015, Hevelyn Villar lives in Tampa where she decided to combine her architectural background with secondary bachelor’s degree in studio art at University of South Florida.
The exhibition runs through March 26.
ArtLab is in the west side of the Wilson G. Bradshaw Library on FGCU’s main campus at 10501 FGCU Blvd. S. Parking for visitors to the gallery is available in Lot 7. Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For images and further information on this exhibition and others, go to or call 239-590-7199.
