Amy Moorefield Curates Exhibit Nature Nurture at The Jax
The Jacksonville Center for the Arts is proud to present the exhibit imagined by Amy G. Moorefield, lately of the Eleanor J. Wilson Museum at Hollins Univ., now Deputy Director of Exhibits for the Taubman Museum in Roanoke. The Jax Annual Curated Exhibit in the Hayloft Gallery, Nature Nurture: Reflections on the Land by Christine Carr, Genesis Chapman, and Suzanne Stryk, will be mounted next week, with a Meet the Artists Reception and Curator/Artists discussion on October 12, from 5 to 8 PM. Moorefield has chosen to feature three of Virginia’s renowned artists who look deeply at the many facets of nature in the unique terrain of our own region: Roanoke, Bent Mountain, and Bristol. The artists are Christine Carr, Genesis Chapman, and Suzanne Stryk.
“Referencing the tenets of the mid19th century Hudson River School, each artist has created unique work that revisits universal themes of discovery, exploration, and romanticism in new and remarkable ways,” states Moorefield. “Nature Nurture will challenge our assumptions of the native environment, and our interventions on it and its inhabitants.” The exhibition includes works in the media of drawing, mixed media, and photography. The showcase will be available for the public to see during Jacksonville Center business hours through November 30 in Floyd’s premier Hayloft Gallery. Read more »
