Set to be revealed on March 25, this year's annual exhibit features local artists celebrating their favorite artists, with original artwork that was created using inspiration from famous artists, art instructors, people and places.

"Entering into spring, the time of birth and renewal, the Gallery sought out artists to create art in the style of, or with a likeness of, artists who they find uplifting and inspiring. The intent is to promote fresh artwork that brings a sense of appreciation for all artists who inspire. Artists look to other artists to learn about new ways to create," Village Theatre staff said in a statement.

Organized by juror Jennifer Perlmutter, the exhibit depicts a variety of styles, subject matter and media, featuring photos, paintings, ceramics, assemblage pieces and fabric artwork.

An abstract impressionist originally from Napa, Perlmutter is the owner and director of the Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery and has recently had her work chosen for the De Young Museum Open, where it was on exhibit through Jan 2021. In 2020 she was also awarded the Marquis Business Person of the Year by Lafayette.

The exhibition opens March 25 and will run through May 28. The gallery itself remains closed; however, residents can view a virtual walk-through tour of the exhibition on YouTube starting on March 26.

The Village Theatre and Art Gallery in downtown Danville is currently closed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic but theatre staff say plans are currently in the works to reopen now that Contra Costa County has entered the red tier -- according to California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Residents are encouraged to check the theatre's website for updates.
