Event description

Description

The Town of Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery is pleased to present Memory & Imagination, a new exhibit featuring a variety of different works by the practicing artist residents of The Reutlinger Community (TRC). TRC is a senior care center located in Danville and is proud to offer different arts programs for its residents. One such program which meets regularly is called DRAW (an acronym for Discovering the Artist Within). Certainly, this exhibition is proof that sometimes we do not discover our full potential as humans and our artistic skills and talents until we are living as elders with more time to explore creativity. Much of the works on view in this exhibition will feature delightful renditions and colorful creations including landscapes of places remembered. Also included in this exhibition are abstract works, which focus more on imagination of the artist and the viewer. The works in this exhibition will wow and please viewers of all ages. The robust arts programs at TRC are led by Artist-in Residence/Director of the Art Program and Artist, Betty Rothaus. Rothaus has been fascinated by the arts since childhood. She holds a BFA in Painting and an MFA in Printmaking in addition to a degree as a Specialist in Art Education. Rothaus believe that art comes from an individual’s rich and varied life experiences and interests. The artwork from a few of the arts programs at TRC will be on view in this exhibition, including the DRAW program as well as artworks from the AWE program (Art with Elders) and artwork from the OMA program (Opening Minds Through Art). An Opening Reception for the exhibition is set for Sunday, August 25, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Reception is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be served. The exhibit will run through October 12, 2019. . 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 and donations are appreciated.
