The Village Theatre Art Gallery Presents: Impressions of Light

The Village Theatre Art Gallery Presents: Impressions of Light

Examining The Radical and Challenging Art of Impressionism 

An exhibition featuring artwork from middle school students of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District

Exhibition dates: November 6 - December 17, 2021

Young artists bring a fresh new perspective to the Village Theatre Art Gallery this November as the newest exhibition, Impressions of Light, partners the Town of Danville with artists from the San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s middle schools.  

The exhibition will feature artwork inspired by the great Impressionist painters. During the Impressionist period, artists aimed to capture an impression of an object, or landscape, or model rather than aim for exact detail. The goal was to convey a feeling of color and movement. In this student exhibition, some artists have used the style of impressionism with more modern design concepts and themes, while others have chosen to copy the masters and their most famous works with their own interpretation and style. 

Students from Charlotte Wood, Diablo Vista, Iron Horse, Los Cerros, Pine Valley, Stone Valley and Windermere Ranch middle schools will be showing their work.  The exhibition was imagined and curated by art teachers Gary Leveque from Charlotte Wood and Tricia Grame from Pine Valley.  Both teachers have taught art in the district for close to 30 years.

An opening reception for Impressions of Light will be held on Saturday, November 6, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. COVID19 safety guidelines will be in effect and masks must be worn by all regardless of vaccination status. Complimentary refreshments will be served on the patio in front of the Village Theatre & Art Gallery.  No food or drink is permitted inside the gallery as a safety precaution.  As always, the reception is free and open to the public.  

The Village Theatre Art Gallery is currently open to visitors Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 12:00 p.m-5:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  All other days by appointment only. Admission is free. All current COVID-19 guidelines are followed in the gallery. To check the latest guidelines, go to the Town’s website www.danville.ca.gov/vtart
