Current Exhibit - Imagine That

The Town of Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery is pleased to announce the latest exhibition: Imagine That - an exhibit of an eclectic collection of modern abstract paintings. 

Exhibition Dates: October 20 - December 16, 2022

Artists created paintings inspired by Beethoven’s 9th Symphony.  It is understood that this important work of music by Beethoven was in part inspired by his reading and interpretation of the poem Ode to Joy written by Friedrich Schiller in the late seventeen-hundreds.  Beyond the Brush artists carry on the tradition of artists being inspired by artists in the newest art exhibit at the Village Theatre Art Gallery, Imagine That! Gallery goers can expect to see paintings that are meant to evoke the emotions of joy. The exhibit showcases paintings that are meant to be a convergence of the poem, the music and the power of color, texture, and imagery of paint and a brush. Music by Beethoven will be played at the reception to create mood and insight into the connection between the music and artwork. 

The Village Theatre Art Gallery is currently open to visitors Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 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, and donations are appreciated.
