Museum of the Shenandoah Valley Art Show
The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, Virginia will be featuring my painting “Nec Spe-Nec Metu” in its upcoming exhibition. This exhibition was made possible because of Ken Marquis imagination and the MSV director Dana Hand Evans.
The idea was to promote reduce, reuse, and recycle waste into imaginative art.
This is an exhibition of environmentally inspired contemporary art, “Second Time Around”: The Hubcap as Art will present works by nearly 300 artists from every U.S. state and 35 other countries. The objects were created by artists from across the globe who responded to an invitation issued by the Pennsylvania-based, nonprofit Landfillart Project to turn a discarded hubcap into art. Second Time Around, which marks the first time these objects will be on public exhibition, will be at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley from September through March 1, 2015. The exhibition will travel to other museums.
Second Time Around will represent the wide range of styles, sizes, and mediums used by artists who responded to the Landfillart Project invitation. Objects range in size from a single hubcap footprint to a sculpture that is nearly eight feet tall. Some objects are kinetic, incorporate sound, and illuminate; many directly reference specific environmental issues.
