This traveling exhibition organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) with representative masterpieces of the genre—including works by George Stubbs, Sir Francis Grant, John Frederick Herring, Benjamin Marshall, and George Morland— celebrates Paul Mellon’s gift of British sporting art to the VMFA. It also proposes a fresh look at sporting art within wider social and artistic contexts, including the scientific and industrial revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries, the transformation of the British countryside, the evolutionary history of the horse and other animals, and society’s changing habits and customs.

Opening Exhibit: Washington’s Shadow: Images in Limbo feat. Lynn McIntosh

Washington’s Shadow: Images in Limbo
Featuring Lynn McIntosh
July 17 – August 31
Lynn McIntosh is a native of Bluefield, Virginia, and graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. In Washington’s Shadow, Lynn has placed each image in limbo; which is like a “spotlight” to remove the distraction of a surrounding background – and, perhaps, to encourage a quiet and thoughtful emotional response. Although limbo photography is not a new technique, Lynn’s historical application suggests a dimension beyond the obvious, by surrounding the subject as if it is floating in infinite blackness. His collection contains familiar images of patriots and cataclysmic pitfalls that tested the mettle of the heroes who served after, and long after, our first president. In addition to provoking thought, the collection portrays a chronological historical narrative as each image relates to the picture that precedes or follows it. Experience the narrative for yourself & meet the photographer at the opening reception, July 21, 6-8 pm. “Washington’s Shadow”, a guided artist talk, will begin at 6:45 pm. Receptions are free and open to the public.

Summertime

Friday, July 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Les Yeux du Monde, 841 Wolf Trap Rd.
Charlottesville, VA 22911 United States

Summertime….

Anne Chesnut, Richard Crozier, Abby Kasonik, Megan Marlatt, Trisha Orr,

Lincoln Perry, Priscilla Long Whitlock, Sarah Boyts Yoder, Cate West Zahl

20 July – 26 August 2018

Opening Reception, Friday, July 20, 5 – 7 p.m.

Closing Reception, Sunday, August 26, 2 – 4 p.m.

From July 20 through August 26, 2018, Les Yeux du Monde presents Summertime…, featuring the work of nine artists evoking summer’s varied scenes and associations. Some of these artists—Anne Chesnut, Richard Crozier, Trisha Orr, Megan Marlatt, Lincoln Perry and Priscilla Long Whitlock—are long time favorites with the gallery with many shows to their history. Others are exciting newcomers to our stable—Abby Kasonik, Sarah Boyts Yoder and Cate West Zahl. Subjects and mediums vary from Anne Chesnut’s Summer Samplers, multi layered prints that she hand stitches together, to Richard Crozier’s oil paintings of bountiful summer gardens, Megan Marlatt’s whimsical carnival scenes from her semester in Belgium, Lincoln Perry’s watercolors of Italian sojourns, and Priscilla Long Whitlock’s oils of the ocean or fields in summer. If the aforementioned artists are on the representational end of the spectrum, newcomers work mostly in the abstract idiom. Abby Kasonik will show her trademark atmospheric indigo acrylic paintings along with newer oil stick and mixed media works on paper; Sarah Boyts Yoder will exhibit ebullient surprising acrylic abstractions and Cate West Zahl will show more linear and geometric oils in summery saturated greens and blues. Trisha Orr not only will exhibit paintings of idyllic revelers by the river or shopping and making summer feasts, she also will exhibit a few of her powerful expressionistic series, Charlottesville Burning, evoking in the horrendous events on the Lawn and in Charlottesville last August 12.

There will be an Opening Reception on Friday, July 20 from 5 – 7 p.m. and a Closing Reception on Sunday August 26 from 2 – 4 p.m. Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday 1 – 5 and by appointment (Call 434-973-5566 or email LYDMGallery@gmail.com). Our website is www.LYDM.co.
