Shenandoah Valley Art Center Exhibits

April 6, 2019 @ 10:00 am - April 27, 2019 @ 4:00 pm


The Shenandoah Valley Art Center, during the month of April, is exhibiting in the Cabell/Arehart Gallery the artwork of Sandra Luckett. Awakening is a multi-media exhibit that is a monument to spiritual rebirth. Luckett states that the concept arose from her grief over our current “collective experience.” She finds our world feels hateful and the political climate very disturbing. Initially she created a shrine to Shiva, the Hindu god of annihilation and regeneration, with a hope that destruction might lead to a civil revolution of tolerance and kindness. She continued to build the exhibit around this idea; every creative decision was made with consideration for shrines of hope and her vision of a better world. Luckett earned her MFA at VCU and is currently a professor of painting and installation at the University of Central Arkansas, where she blissfully guides students to be their best creative selves. Recently honored as a “Woman to Watch” by the National Museum of Women In The Arts for her photography work, Sandra is not content to limit her creative impulses to any one medium. Her artwork has been exhibited throughout the US and Europe. She was born in California, raised in New York, and has lived in thirteen states. Her interests include music and road tripping. We hope you can join us and meet the artist on April 6, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
In the Members’ Gallery, the theme Yellow will be interpreted by SVAC members through a variety of media and creative ideas. The member/artists will be opening the exhibition on April 6.
