"Taking on Tradition: Six Young Virginia Painters and Printmakers," the newest exhibit in The Williams School Gallery in Huntley Hall at Washington and Lee University, opens Sept. 15 and runs until Dec. 15.
"Taking on Tradition" is an invitational group show of young artists working in the two-dimensional art mediums of drawing, printmaking and painting. The artists are Kathleen Hall, Becca Kallem, Brian Kelley, Devin Mawdsley, Anna Wagner and Amanda Wagstaff. All are exploring the expressive potential of traditional materials while being rooted in the discipline of drawing and coloring from perception.
They all received their undergraduate degrees at Virginia universities and are at various stages of their educations and careers in fine arts.
This exhibition is curated by Linda Carey who teaches at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg.
The Williams School Gallery is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
