Art Exhibition Continues: "Creating Space-Seven Contemporary Women Artists"

Art This exhibit examines the recent work of a cohort of women artists living in the Shenandoah Valley: They are united by location, a lifelong pursuit of seeking through art, and an artist/teacher/mentor to learn beside. Ron Boehmer, Lynchburg-based artist, teacher, and cofounder of the Beverley Street Studio School (Staunton, VA) is the catalyst who brings these disparate artists together. Each of these artists have juggled life as professionals, daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, grandmothers, teachers, and caregivers. Despite their many roles and responsibilities, they always created space in their lives to make art. Lindsay Freedman, Janly Jaggard, June Jordan, Joan Ranzini, Krista Townsend, and Christine Watts still convene regularly for a critique session to discuss their latest work and get feedback. Deliece Blanchard studied independently with Boehmer and recently moved from the Shenandoah Valley to Winston-Salem, NC. Best known for their paintings, a few of these artists also create collages, vitreous… Thursday, September 1, 2022. Eleanor D. Wilson Museum, Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center.

Art Exhibition Continues: "Grace Lin-Moon Stories"

Art Grace Lin is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of children’s books. She has won the Newbery Honor, Caldecott Honor, and Theodor Geisel Honor as well as being a National Book Award finalist. As a small child and a voracious reader, Lin could not identify with any of the characters in the books she was reading. Her dream in life was to write and illustrate children’s books and in doing so she has also become an advocate for diversity. This exhibition will feature 36 of Lin’s illustrations from the following books: A Big Mooncake for Little Star; Where the Mountain Meets the Moon; Starry River of the Sky; When the Sea Turned to Silver; Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival; and Round is a Mooncake: A Book of Shapes. Exhibit through September 18. Hours are Tuesday through Sunday from Noon-5 pm, with extended evening hours on Thursday until 8 pm. Masks are required. Thursday, September 1, 2022. Eleanor D. Wilson Museum, Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center.

Art Exhibition Continues: "International Mezzotint Society Exchange Exhibition-Selected Work"

Art First introduced in 1642, mezzotint printing employs a copper plate and a tool (now known as a rocker) to create a close cluster of gouged dots or burrs. The painstaking, intricate technique allows for subtle gradations of tonal values--almost a halftone, and deep solid colors--especially a rich, velvety black. After a decline in popularity in the late nineteenth century as new printing technologies became available, artists rediscovered and embraced the mezzotint process in recent decades. Through her involvement in six international mezzotint exchanges organized by the International Mezzotint Society, Fincastle-based artist and Hollins University professor emerita Nancy Dahlstrom has shared her artwork as well as obtained a collection of mezzotints from artists around the world. This exhibition includes selections from the exchanges in which Dahlstrom has participated. Exhibit through September 25. Hours are Tuesday through Sunday from Noon-5 pm, with extended evening hours on Thursday until 8 pm. Masks… Thursday, September 1, 2022. Eleanor D. Wilson Museum, Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center.
