Recent Works by John Wagoner

John Wagoner challenges the notion of what defines a painting by creating works of art that transition between painting and sculpture. The audience can examine and experience these boundaries or relationships within these works, presented in different modalities, and to view paint as a very fluid medium.

The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.

Recent Work by John Van Zandt

John Van Zandt enjoys exploring with bright, bold colors and contrasting realism with abstract images and backgrounds. He works primarily with acrylic and canvas as he appreciates the speed at which layers can be added to backgrounds. Letting no paint go to waste he explores new ways to incorporate dried paints into his pieces.

The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery

Silver Lining by Adam Reinhard

After six years spent buried under the noise of Washington D.C., Adam Reinhard returned to the Blue Ridge Mountains where he feels that he can finally hear, breathe, and see again. And there is so much to see. Reinhard is convinced that there are secret colors only to be found where those ancient crusts rise up and out of the Shenandoah valley. Working under the restraints of shifting light, cold, and heat has served as Reinhard’s inspiration. Whether it’s the siding of a dilapidated barn, ribbons of water working their way down a stream bed, or endless rows of corn in patchwork farms, he finds that it is often the boldest strokes, reacting to the quickly changing environment, which portray the truth as he sees it. This exhibit will be in the Port Gallery.________________________________________
