2019: “REFLECTIONS” Annual Fall Show & Reception
REFLECTIONS is the 7th Annual Group Art & Photography Show at Woodberry Forest School’s Baker Gallery, September 2 – October 27, with a reception on Saturday, September 7 from 5 – 8 pm.
It is the Firnew Farm Artists’ Circle seventeenth year together. What started as a small group of local artists coming together to paint has become an established and thoughtful group of creative artists crossing all kinds of artistic boundaries. We now represent not only oil, watercolor, acrylic and drip artists, photographers, but a ceramicist and jeweler.
The Firnew artists took the theme REFLECTIONS both literally and figuratively. Reflections can be a watercolor image in a car’s bumper, by Sue Linthicum, an oil painting reflection in Middle River by Richard Young or Gail Trimmer-Unterman’s watercolor of her daughter in her boyfriend’s sunglasses. It can also be a memory. Barb Wallace’s painting of a woodland is sheer memory. I think this group show will both delight and surprise you. It will lift your spirit and make you smile when you look in a mirror or the pond.
From Firnew director, Trish Crowe, “Jon Perry is this year’s featured artist. He was inspired by Antonio Gaudi, also known as God’s Architect and designer of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain. Jon’s paintings of stained-glass windows from La Sagrada Familia represent the four seasons and seemed perfect for this year’s Reflections Exhibition”.
A collaborative effort with the Virginia Master Naturalists will also be on display. The Socrates Project: Poisonous Plants in Virginia, will feature educational information and Firnew artwork inspired by the project.
