Gene Provenzo-From Bach to the Beatles and Beyond

Runs August 29- November 24

Reception: September 5, 5-7 PM; Artist Talk: 6 PM

The exhibit, “From Bach to the Beatles and Beyond,” provides a survey of different musical traditions that have played an important part in the life of Gene Provenzo. Provenzo is not a musician but is a great listener/appreciator of most musical styles. Jazz, rap, rock and roll, modern atonal music and baroque classical are just a few of the musical genres of interest. In the exhibit, Provenzo explores music through mixed media, sculpture/assemblage and collage.

His approach to doing this type of art is grounded in the French concept of detournement. This involves taking a work of art or artifact such as a book or a kitchen implement and transforming it into something else. Marcel Duchamp did this in his readymade art. The work that is created can be wiser, funnier, more elaborate, streamlined and so on when compared with its source. This technique is one which underlies nearly all of his work as an artist. Provenzo takes images and objects and cuts them down, builds them up and merges them with like and unlike things. He makes small things large and vice-versa. It is more than just appropriation. It is instead, a reconceptualization, a rediscovery, of what is there.

 


 

 

 

 

Entwined…Stories in Woven Color

Runs: November 29, 2019 – February 23, 2020

 

Meet The Artists: December 5, 5-7pm

Central Virginia Textile Artists is a small group of textile artists that have met as a group for about 6 years. The artists meet monthly to share ideas and goals, update progress on current work and discuss designs for future projects. The group works in a variety of weaving structures such as tapestry and various multiple harness loom techniques using various mixed media in combination with the weaving in wool, cotton, tercel and silk.

The history of their weaving origins and inspirations are quite diverse. The shared common goal is to continue the exploration of textiles, study designs and techniques that keep the group energized and challenged.

Exhibiting artists: Klaus Anselm, Meredith Bennett, Laurie Duxbury, Joan Griffin, Jan Russell, and Ann Vonnegut.
