Cantores De Luz by Maximo Laura -
Maximo Laura is Peru’s most prestigious weaver and is attributed for preserving the ancient methods of weaving. This exhibit Cantores De Luz (Singers of Light) is full of color, movement and symbolism that intertwine ancestral Peruvian techniques, symbols, memories and myths with contemporary aesthetics. All Laura tapestries are hand-woven at the Maximo Laura Studio.
There is much to “read” when viewing a Maximo Laura tapestry. His website describes the realms, the cosmos, the Sun and Moon representations, the Inca Cross, the patterns, zigzags and circles and the meanings woven into the tapestries.
This exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery through August 20th.
Oil Painting: The People of Colonial Williamsburg, The Blue Ridge and The Rocky Mountains by H. Binford Harrell -
In this exhibit, the images inspire awe--an elaborate interpretation of purpose. The subjects appear to be entirely without pretension--an informal image. The work was performed using time-tested methods handed down from the Old Masters. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East.
Up Close and Personal : Miniature Landscape Paintings by Alexangel Estevez -
This exhibit showcases miniature landscape paintings. Estevez used simplified brushstrokes to emphasize a delicacy that is seen in each of the paintings. The landscapes are from Petersburg and Richmond, Virginia. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.
Art in Flight by Jacquie Digney -
Digney finds birds of every species to be satisfying to paint.
The texture and lines of the feathers, the structure of the beaks, and the right look in their eye(s) are a fun challenge.
This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
Lost Secrets by Chris Semtner -
Chris Semtner presents a series of oil paintings in the Skylight Gallery.
