In an effort to become an increasingly inclusive creative space and resource for artists, we experimented with Open Studio Sessions wherein artists could use our space to work amongst other artists. These pieces are to be displayed in our Newport News Community Gallery for a new exhibit concept titled “A Space of Our Own”. This exhibit is thematically-inspired by our Free Hang Day and the previously popular, “A Space of Her Own”. The featured artists work in a variety of media including acrylic, oil, watercolor, photography, and multi-media installation work. Their styles vary from abstract, to portraiture, to landscape, and collages.
There will also be a fun competition in which patrons will be able to vote for an audience favorite at the reception and the winner will be guaranteed a solo exhibit in the Newport News Community Gallery for our 2019/2020 exhibit season!
The exhibit will run from March 18- April 15, 2019 with the reception on March 23, 2019 from 5:30-7:30pm. Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. RSVP is appreciated but not required, and will be available soon.
