The Town of Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery Presents:
Altered & Reimagined
An exhibition featuring 10 Bay Area Collage & Assemblage Artists
Exhibition dates: June 19-August 6, 2021
Use your imagination! The Town of Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery is pleased to present Altered & Reimagined, an art exhibit comprised of the creative, delightful, and very imaginative work of 10 Bay Area artists whose focus is on creating artwork out of repurposed objects—things old and new, into one-of-a-kind collages and sculptures. Artists included in this exhibition are Marsha Balian, Dyanna Dimick, Tom Franco, Dianne Hoffman, Diana Krevsky, Sarah Lee, Kim Smith, Mary Southall, Karen Stanton, and Kathryn Wills.
Also featured as part of this exhibition are two, larger-than-life, kinetic mushroom sculptures, standing 12 feet tall with a cap-span of 14 feet wide, created by the FoldHaus Artist Collective. The mushrooms will be installed in the downtown area at the Town Green by the Danville Community Center and Library and in front of the Village Theatre & Art Gallery. By day, the mushrooms are an ethereal white, at night they come alive, as the mushroom caps open and close and a rainbow of LED lights cycle through from top to bottom back to the top again in a stunning display of art and engineering. The mushroom sculptures will be on display from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
An opening reception for this exhibition will be held on Saturday, June 19 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Covid Safety guidelines will be in effect and masks must be worn. The reception will take place on the patio in front of the Village Theatre at 233 Front St. in Danville, where there will be live music and refreshments and a chance to meet the artists and learn about their artwork. The Art Gallery will have its doors open all evening, allowing a limited number of people in at one time to view the artwork. As always, the reception is free and open to the public.
The Village Theatre and Art Gallery is currently open to visitors Tuesday through Thursday 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Admission is free, and donations are appreciated. Please check the website www.danville.ca.gov/vtart for opening hours as health guidelines may change.
