Current Exhibits

 

New Eyes in Danville
Drawings, Prints and Photographs by Rochelle Bayless and Nick Lacy
Saturday, April 5 - Saturday, May 3, 2014

Opening reception:
Thursday, April 10, 6 to 8 p.m.
Free and open to the public. Light refreshments served.

Rochelle Bayless 
and Nick Lacy are new to Danville and they have quickly begun to explore and enjoy the area. This exhibit, "New Eyes in Danville," is an opportunity for them to showcase a body of work consisting of past memories and new discoveries.

Nick’s inclination is toward documentary photography and his goal is to tell stories of everyday life and to see ordinary people, places and things in a new way. He brings a sense of quiet observation and flair for capturing fleeting moments to his images.

Rochelle seeks to find the beautiful and interesting in what otherwise might be considered ugly and boring. Using classic color theory principles and a spontaneous response, Rochelle’s work - though largely representational - aims to challenge the viewer to see the unexpected in the expected and uncover layers beneath the first glance.

Re garden exhibit sketch by Brandon LongCreativity isn’t limited to expensive paints and canvases - YOU have the power to beautify the world around us with everyday materials at your fingertips!

Artist in Residence: Mark Wilhelm

Artist in Residence

Mark WilhelmMark Wilhelm hails from Liberty, Ky. and now lives in Harrodsburg. He took up residence in our studio in April and will be using it to create and display his artwork, which includes digital art, paintings, sculpture and ceramics.

He explains, "I have been making art for around a decade and a half in all different kinds of ways. Current mediums include: sculpture, oil paintings, pottery, et cetera. "Et cetera" is a wonderful way of saying,“whatever I feel like at the time." Stop by anytime and see me making the aforementioned "et cetera" and maybe even get involved in the process of making art yourself! I make it a point to keep a few group art projects going at all times, whether it's a group Lego sculpture or a comic strip collection, there is always something to do."

Mark's studio is located on the first floor of the Arts Center. It may not look like the studio you were expecting--there's a comfy couch to sit on and lots of interactive coffee-table books for those intrepid enough to make a contribution, whether it be doodles, quotes, anecdotes or fictional tales. You can also browse some of his latest paintings, sculptures and prints, and even buy them if the mood strikes you!

If you'd like to meet Mark and see what's he's currently working on, stop by afternoons Wednesday through Friday, or contact him to set up an appointment. Check out his blog and Instagram for more! 

Horizon: Contemporary Landscape 2014


Horizon Contemporary Landscape
Bookmark this page and check back for updates about the 2014 exhibit!

Entry information will be posted in early summer 2014.

Thank you to all who submitted works in 2013!



Each year, the Community Arts Center hosts Horizon: Contemporary Landscape, an exhibit designed to test the limits of what we think of when we hear the word “landscape,” blurring the lines between the traditional and experimental. While many artists portray classic landscape paintings, others delve into more abstract realms, submitting everything from collage and photography to mixed media and cast metal sculpture.


This exhibit is juried, which means that jurors or judges select which paintings will be displayed. A first, second and third prize are also given by the jurors to the artists whose works display artistic excellence and strength of execution. The 2013 exhibit was on display Oct. 2 – Nov. 15. A reception celebrating the diverse array of artwork and artists was Thursday, Oct. 10, at 6 p.m.
