circles art exhibit at the franklin park arts center, purcellville, va

After work I dropped by the Franklin Park Art Center to check out the current "Circles" art exhibit, going on from now until November 4th, 2013. The exhibit kicks off the center's sixth season in operation, and it is also one of many I've had work in over the past few years. This time around I dug out some old friends from several years back - a series of five scratched records painted over with acrylics titled Vinyl Monkeys. These guys hung in NYC a little while ago, and one of them (the sleeping snow monkey) was in a juried show in Vienna, VA a couple of years ago. While they look pretty cool individually, I prefer they hang together as a set, and I think the folks at the center did a fine job displaying them. You'll find lots of other great pieces at the Circles show on display as well, ranging from ceramics to sculpture, and collage to paintings, and everything in between. As always, in addition to the great art, they put on some concerts and theater performances well worth checking out. So don't hesitate to drop on by if you're in the area!
