Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of its new gallery exhibition featuring the works of six talented local artists, including Langley Anderson, Jane Blevins, Jennifer Huffman, Ken Pease, Kaila Hendricks and Hope Creasy. The exhibit will open on Saturday, November 27 for Shop Small Saturday.
Langley Anderson’s photography brings together an eclectic set of images that speak to the essence of his style. His works range from photographic explorations of classic cars to fantastic scientific images capturing what the naked eye cannot see. Using scanning electron and stereoscopic microscopes, she brings to the gallery the smallest details of nature showing their inherent beauty.
Jane Blevins is an art teacher who uses her artistic skills to help others celebrate their future college experiences or the cherished memories of an alma mater. She uses watercolors and colored pencils to create images that evoke the special traditions, memories and experiences that make each college unique.
Jennifer Huffman strives to create visual representations of the small images and details that come to mind as interesting, beautiful, or symbols of both shared and private experiences. Through the use of soft, recessed colors and detailed dramatic lines, she attempts to convey the selective nature of personal memory by playing with focus and depth of field.
Ken Pease is an artist and elementary art teacher who has also worked as a graphic designer for over 30 years. His works have a folk art style developed from his love of Warner Brothers cartoons, Picasso, and a love of music and humor. His paintings are colorful and fun and seek to spread peace, love and music.
Kaila Hendricks and Hope Creasy of HanK’s Hideaway Shop create assembled wooden wall art pieces from several objects with different stories, much adhering to the tradition of marriage of “something old, something new, something. something borrowed, something blue “. Each piece is handmade and brings a memory to life by telling its own story.
Come admire the artwork of these local artists and take a peek at our “Christmas in Virginia” exhibit which debuts at the Pop-Up Holiday Craft Market on December 11th. The Gift Shop, which offers a wide variety of artisanal products, both local and old, is the perfect place for unique and specialty gift ideas for the holiday season.
