Where Have All the People Gone?

August 23, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Danville art exhibit Opens August 23 at the Village Theater Art Gallery          

The Town of Danville’s upcoming art gallery exhibition will feature selections from the National Institute for Artists with Disabilities (NIAD) Art Center. The exhibit, Where Have All the People Gone? occurs August 23 through September 30 in the Village Theatre Art Gallery located at 233 Front Street.

Featured in the show will be paintings and sculptures, varying in size from featured artists Ray Brown, Jeremy Burleson, Felecia Griffin, David Martin, Dorothy Porter, Kevin Randolph, Jonathan Valdivias and Billy White. Two of NIAD’s artists, Billy White and Julio Del Rio, have created extensive groups of figurative ceramic sculptures. At less than half-life size, Del Rio’s army of figures sport a glazed skin etched with text or symbols, creating a connection back in time with the terracotta warriors of ancient China. Unlike the uniform drabness of the funerary sculptures, Del Rio’s pieces are civilians bursting with color.

Join the Town of Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery on Friday, August 23 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for an Opening Reception.  A special Art Chat with the center’s Director of Exhibitions and Marketing, Tim Buckwalter, will be held on Wednesday, September 11 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

For more information about this exhibition, please contact Visual Arts Coordinator, Amy Miller at [email protected] or (925) 314-3460.
