Staunton Augusta Art Center exhibition closes on Saturday

saaclogoYour last chance to view Light Coming Through, paintings by Staunton’s own Robert Stuart is this Saturday, September 20th. Stuart’s exhibition of paintings and works on paper can be viewed during the routine gallery hours of 10-5 Monday through Friday and 10-4 Saturday in the art galleries of the R. R. Smith Center, 20 S. New street in downtown Staunton. Don’t miss this impressive and contemplative body of work before it comes down!

The artist’s statement for Light Coming Through, reads:

In these paintings…
. . . . using texture, color, measurement, lines, rhythm, proportion, shape, tonal contrasts—to create a sense of light coming through, or, in its dark version, darkness seeping out, “bleeding”–to come to a “felt,” intuited fullness or completeness.
. . . . to make an object whose qualities can induce, seduce, encourage, allow—thoughtful contemplation, reverie, awareness of mystery, and that can remind the viewer of the “other,” the “inner,” unspoken thoughts, feelings, existence below and beyond the surface and the fleeting.”
