Barber Art Show Brings Together Hundreds of Artists
Celebrate the possibilities at the Barber National Institute art show and sale
Friday, Apr. 13
The Barber National Institute will host an art show and sale featuring work from nearly 500 artists from all over our region. The 11th annual event is sponsored by physicians and supporters of the arts Jay and Mona Kang.
To kick everything off, there will be a special unveiling of a public sculpture entitled "Timeless Possibilities." At 11 a.m., a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held for the work at the Institute's main entrance along East Avenue. The 15-foot-tall metal sculpture with nautical and temporal elements was designed and fabricated by students and faculty from the George Junior Republic. The base of the sculpture features a tiled mosaic designed by Frank Fecko, created by eight adults in the Institute's Fine Arts Program.
The art show will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday with a wine and cheese reception starting at 5 p.m., and run until Monday evening. With over 200 works by young artists, in addition to many familiar regional, professional names on the walls, the show promises to span myriad styles and subjects, with the title of this year's show fittingly asking the viewer to be "celebrating the possibilities." — Nick Warren
