Description

The Shenandoah Valley Art Center, during

the month of February, is exhibiting in the Cabell/Arehart Gallery the student
artworks from The Shenandoah Valley
Governor’s School Arts and Humanities Program .The program, begun in the
fall of 2002, offers area students a creative environment to further their
study in the visual arts or theatre arts and humanities. Students apply to
attend SVGS for their junior and senior years of high school and present a
portfolio as the largest percentage of their application score. Visual art
students in the program hail from Staunton and Augusta County high schools,
spending each morning taking courses in art history, humanities, and studio
production, before returning to their home high schools for afternoon
classes. One of the two studio courses
is taught by local artists, giving the students the opportunity not only to
learn about specific media and techniques, but also to gain insight into the
life of a working artist. Additionally, gallery visits, field trips, and
exhibition preparation give our students more hands-on experiences in all
aspects of the art world. This show was designed to teach the students the
process of preparing for an exhibition, and students are involved in every step
of the process. Curatorial decisions were made collaboratively with the
instructor, and students were responsible for preparing their pieces for
hanging, creating wall labels, delivering the artwork to the gallery and
assisting with the resulting arrangement. This show is a result of their
combined efforts to professionally display their work. Each student in the
Visual Arts Department is represented with at least one piece in the show. An
additional feature of this year’s show is a “Telephone” Series. Inspired by the
children’s game Telephone; one artist “started” the series, shared their piece
to ONE peer only, with a brief explanation. The second artist created a
reaction piece inspired by the first artist’s work then shared their resulting
piece with the third artist. The series of 16 pieces will be revealed to ALL
the artists, including the instructor, on the night of the SVAC Opening
Celebration! We hope you can join us and meet the artists on February 2, from
5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

In
the Hallway Gallery, the tribute to art education continues with an exhibition
of artwork by the Blue Ridge Virginia
Art Education Association showcasing its members from the Shenandoah Valley
and Blue Ridge Mountains. The exhibit is an intriguing look into the creative
process of educators. It is a rich tapestry of artwork that represents lives
involved in the daily practice of nurturing young artists who will determine
the evolution of art in the future. In
the Members’ Gallery, the theme RED will be interpreted by SVAC members
through a variety of media and creative ideas. These artists too, will be
available to greet and answer questions at the upcoming opening!
