In anticipation of the sunny season, Danville’s Village Theatre and Art Gallery has announced its spring exhibit, “Print It!” which will feature a large and diverse collection of prints that depict a variety of styles and subject matter.

A collection of artists from the nonprofit -- which possesses more than 300 members -- will be providing the Village Theatre with a variety of different types of printmaking including: woodcut, linocut, collagraph, engraving, etching, aquatint, monotype, lithograph and screen prints.

Danville town officials have said a selection of artist members from the society will be featured in this exhibition including: Shunsuke Ando, Peter Baczek, Sandra Beard, Noah Breuer, Amy Burek, Helene Cote, Cathie Crawford, Linda L. Fribley, Betty Friedman, Karen Gallagher-Iverson, Deena Haynes, Joanna Kidd, Dixie Laws, Kent Manske, Barbara Maricle, Cynthia Milionis, HJ Mooij, Barbara Nilsson, Amanda Palmer, Arline Reimann, Jill Reich, Ashley Rodriguez Reed, Danguole Rita, Asli Saglam, Anita Seltzer, Maryly Snow, Toru Sugita, Jami Taback, Karen Towne, Katherine Venturelli, Summer Ventis, Nanette Wylde and Linda Yoshizawa.

Complimentary refreshments will be provided at an opening reception for the exhibition, scheduled for this Saturday (March 16), from 1-3 p.m. at the Village Theatre reception area. Artists will be on hand during the reception, to engage with attendees and discuss their work. It is scheduled to run through April 20.

All artwork in the exhibit will be available for purchase, and admission to the gallery is free.

Still on display in the front of the theater, are a series of sculptures by Palo Alto native artist Tom Franco, whose work was originally featured in the theater’s spring 2018 exhibit.
