Description

This year, in time for Veteran’s day, The Village Theatre Art Gallery will be showcasing photographs, sketches and sculptures as well as a series of self-portraits from the California Arts Council’s Veterans Initiative in the Arts, ABOUTFACE program.

The exhibition was curated by Vietnam Veteran and photographer, Tim Dallas. Dallas’ work will be on display and so will the work of Steven Burchik and Jim Hardy. All three men served in the war but it was not until recently, through their shared loved of art and photography that they became acquainted.

Steven Burchik has made a book from his collection of photographs and often speaks to local high schools and Vets organizations about his experience serving in Vietnam. Burchik will be hosting “Compass and Camera, a Year in Vietnam” at the Village Theatre on Thursday, November 8 at 7 pm and will show many photos from his collection as part of his talk. The talk is appropriate for all ages and is free and open to the public.

An Opening Reception for the exhibition is scheduled for Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30.m. The very entertaining and talented group of musicians, Clarinet Fusion, will be doing a live musical performance during the reception. Complimentary refreshments will be served. The exhibit runs through December 15, 2018. Artwork in the exhibition will be for sale.

The Village Theatre and Art Gallery is open to visitors Wednesday through Friday 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Monday and Tuesday by appointment only. The Art Gallery is closed on Sundays. Admission is free, donations are appreciated.
