Gallery 21 invites you to the Opening Reception of its Fall exhibit “Bringing Brooklyn to Norfolk” Friday, September 23, 5-8pm. The exhibit features 24 artists from Brooklyn, New York in a variety of mediums. The exhibit is curated by Patrick Todd and is described as:
“Bringing Brooklyn To Norfolk” is an incomplete survey show of unique and different approaches to art making. The show aims to highlight quality and diversity through context, and hopefully, bring the conversation of art to the forefront. No theme, no idea, no curation can tie these objects together in a super narrative. The viewing audience is invited to explore the artists' individual stories in greater depth and contemplate on their process in honing their skills.
Artists included in this exhibition are: Amanda Church, Amelia Biewald, Brenda Zlamany, Chris Dunlap, Cibele Vieira, David Friedman, Debra Drexler, Ellie Murphy, Esperanza Cortes, Hecter Rene, Jen Hitchings, Jennifer Delilah, Jim Klein, Julia Whitney Barnes, Julian Armond Jimarez Howard, Kathleen Vance, Ken Butler, Matthew Mahler, Max Yawney, Michael Pribich, Peter Fox, Sean Hemmerle, Stephen Mallon, and Sue Kovacs.
You are invited to the opening reception of our new exhibit, Spindrift, a beach series by Stephen Jernigan. The series encompasses work over the last two decades of his life.
Stephen: "I have lived near water and traveled to places by lakes, rivers and oceans over the course of my life, thus far. I wish to create interesting, peaceful images to express the feelings of serenity and solace that I find when I am by the water. For this series, I use my paint to escape the routines of everyday life. Breathing the fresh air by the water, listening to surf quietly coming home to the shore makes me feel comforted and connected to nature, even if I can see the skyline in the distance. The birds, the sand, the breeze, the pier, Norfolk."
