NEXT: Emerging Virginia Artists provides a platform for 10 artists coming into their own, all with ties to the Commonwealth. The group exhibition will explore new ideas in both traditional and nontraditional mediums, including site-specific installations by Hampton Boyer, Kelsey Witt and Stacia Yeapanis.
The artists provide a peek into what's next in art as PFAC shines a spotlight on their new endeavors. The exhibition will feature works by Hampton Boyer, Pat Jarrett, Harris Johnson (shown at left), Lee Piechocki, Tim Skirven, Jason Stick, John Sebastian Vitale, Kelsey Witt, Matt Yaeger and Stacia Yeapanis.
The exhibit is supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Newport News Commission for the Arts.
The Studio Art School's Summer Session has something for all artists, beginners or newbies, young or old. We're excited to offer classes in glass in partnership with Cristallo Artisans in Newport News, along with our affordable Super Saturday sessions: one-day workshops, all less than $60. Want to dig deeper, but can't commit to 10 weeks? We now offer mini-sessions, classes less than five weeks long and all under $200. Classes are a great way to tap into your talents, broaden your horizons, make new friends, and support PFAC — Art Is What You Make It!
Registration is under way for summer classes and art camps. Register today by calling (757) 596-8175.
