Light and watermedia will collide at the Village Theatre and Art Gallery’s newest exhibit, “Luminous: Radiating and Reflecting Light,” which is now open in downtown Danville.
Set to run through June 15, the free to view exhibit features a large variety of work and subject matter from the California Watercolor Association, a prominent watermedia organization which states its goals are to create, foster and sustain artistic growth and interest in watermedia.
“Luminous” is juried by the town of Danville’s own visual arts coordinator Marija Nelson Bleier, who for more than 20 years has worked in the arts at such prestigious places as the Hirshhorn Museum, the San Francisco Airport Museum, and has served on the Arts Advisory Committee for BART. A staple of the Danville art scene scene since 2014, in that time she has overseen all gallery exhibits at the Village Theatre in addition to various other public art exhibits.
An opening reception was held on Thursday at the theatre, where artists were on hand to discuss their work over complimentary refreshments.
All artwork in the exhibit will be available for purchase, and admission to the gallery is free.
The Village Theatre and Art Gallery is located at 233 Front St. in downtown Danville. It is open to visitors Wednesdays through Fridays noon to 5 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment only, and is closed on Sundays.
