The exhibition, Terra Infirma: The Fragile Dance, was held at the Visual Arts Center, TCC at Olde Towne, Portsmouth, Virginia, May 13 through June 29, 2006. A 15-year retrospective exhibition by Virginia Beach artist, Donna Iona Drozda, the program was comprised of 55 works that were completed between 1991 and 2005 and ranged in size from large-scale unstretched canvases to small mixed media works.
This exhibition appealed to visitors of all ages—younger audiences were attracted to subject matter, which included colorful animals, flowers, and patterns. Adults were drawn to the deeper, symbolic qualities of the work. In this exhibition, Drozda explored the inherent strength and courage of women, cyclic behavior and the natural world.
