Inspiration Strikes in Art Gallery’s Juried Exhibit

Inspired By…Artists Celebrate Their Favorite Artists begins March 25, 2021

 

 

The Town of Danville Village Theatre Art Gallery is pleased to present its 11th Annual Juried Exhibition, Inspired By… Artists Celebrate their Favorite Artists.

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. 

The Art Gallery received many entries all inspired by famous artists, art instructors, people, and places.  Juror Jennifer Perlmutter was faced with the challenging job of selecting pieces that show an array of styles, subject matter, and media.  Included in this exhibition are photos, paintings, ceramics, assemblage pieces, and fabric artwork; something for everyone.

About the Juror: Jennifer Perlmutter is the owner/director of the Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery with locations in Lafayette and Carmel, California.  She is also an artist who describes her artistic style as Abstract Impressionism. Originally from Napa, CA, after several years in the high-energy cities of Boston, New York, and Los Angeles, she settled back to the Bay Area. Her TED talk, "Begin Where You Are" exemplifies her journey of self-discovery as an artist and curator. Her gallery in Lafayette, CA was opened in 2014. Her success in representing a variety of artists and hosting hundreds of exhibits and programs has led to her second gallery location in Carmel by the Sea. In 2020, she was awarded the Marquis Business Person of the Year by Lafayette, CA. And her work was recently chosen for the De Young Museum Open, where it was on exhibit through Jan 2021. She lives in Contra Costa County with her husband and son.

The exhibition opens March 25, 2021, and runs through May 28, 2021.  Because of the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the Gallery remains closed.  However, a virtual walk-through tour of the exhibition will be posted on YouTube by March 26, 2021.

 The Village Theatre and Art Gallery is currently closed but will open to visitors once Contra Costa County moves to the Red Tier. Please check the Town’s website for updates.
