Art in the 21st Century, a new exhibit at the Wayne Theatre, is a fascinating look at how five artists approach their work and how their individuality emerges in their choice of subject matter and use of both traditional and non-traditional media.

Art is a universal process. As children we first experience the joys of making art with our hands. Finger painting, mud pies, play dough… memorable experiences we continue to draw on as our imagination and talent develops. If you ask an artist how they approach making art you will get a different answer from everyone you speak with. An artist begins their creative process with an idea that is translated and formed by their worldview, training and personal experiences.

Mixing media creates opportunities for unique applications that test our sensibilities and can launch us into a new perception of reality. It is my hope the viewer will come away with an appreciation for the dedication, skill and risk each of these artists have embraced on their unique and thought provoking journeys.

About the Exhibit

Exceeding Expectations: Staunton, Augusta County and World War I will display historical photos, newspapers, documents, uniforms, medals, weapons and other items from the area during the war. Although America’s participation in the war was brief compared to other conflicts, it had a dramatic impact on the Valley. Over a thousand young men from the area served in the army. Some died in battle, some were wounded or gassed but others returned with honors to live out their lives back in the Valley. Many more local citizens supported the war effort by raising money and collecting materials and food through organizations such as the Red Cross, YMCA, Boy Scouts, Liberty Loan drives and the local military academies.

This is a traveling exhibit on loan from the Augusta County Historical Society. Curators are Rick Chittum and Rick Potter.
