Sunday, August 16th
3:00pm – 4:00pm
All alumni, parents, and friends are invited to join the DC Hoos on August 16th at 3:00 p.m. for a virtual gallery talk with Lyn Bolen Warren (GSAS ’86, ’94, PAR ’16, ’17), director and owner of Charlottesville-based gallery Les Yeux du Monde.
This event will delve into LYDM’s current exhibition, Light in Darkness. This timely exhibit presents an artistic response to the worldwide tragedy of the Coronavirus. At the beginning of the 20th century, artists from Kandinsky to Mondrian were attempting to represent the spiritual and a deeper reality through their art, thus leading art historian and artist Lydia Gasman to define Modernism as a “quest for new forms of the sacred.” Over 100 years later, the artists in this exhibition also subscribe to this goal, albeit in varying ways. The show features several UVA-affiliated artists, including Lydia Gasman, Dean Dass, David Summers, and Millicent Young, among others.
Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link before the event. Registration requested by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 15th.
