[ARCHIVED] New Exhibition 'Memory & Imagintion' Opens Aug 25

The Town of Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery is pleased to present Memory & Imagination, a new exhibit featuring a variety of different works by the practicing artist residents of The Reutlinger Community (TRC). TRC is a senior care center located in Danville and is proud to offer different arts programs for its residents, such as ‘Discovering the Artist Within.’ This program allows seniors to explore different types of media and discover their artistic potential.

Much of the works in this exhibition will feature delightful renditions and colorful creations including landscapes of places remembered. Also included are abstract works, which focus more on the imagination of the artist and the viewer. Memory and Imagination is an exhibition that will spark a sense of wonder to the whole family.

he robust arts programs at TRC are led by Artist-in Residence/Director of the Art Program and Artist, Betty Rothaus. Rothaus has been fascinated by the arts since childhood.  She holds a BFA in Painting and an MFA in Printmaking in addition to a degree as a Specialist in Art Education. Rothaus believes that art comes from an individual’s rich and varied life experiences and interests.

An Opening Reception for the exhibition is set for Sunday, August 25, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Reception is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be served. The exhibit will run through October 12, 2019.
