Striking bronze sculptures. Beautiful oil-on-canvas paintings. Intense oil and charcoal portraits. “On Being Human” at Valley House Gallery is simply stunning. Check out this new exhibit from now through October 31!
“These last months have reminded us of the importance of our basic humanity and the inherent value of others,” said Cheryl and Kevin Vogel in a recent press release. “After isolating, we felt a need to be surrounded by people, hence this invitational exhibition about people seen through the artist’s eye.”
“On Being Human” features work by Valley House artists as well as figurative artists, including:
Deborah Ballard, Vera Barnett, Lu Ann Barrow, Peter Bonner, Curt Brill, Lloyd Brown, Sean Cairns, Jeanne Campbell, Lindy Chambers, John Cobb, Brian Cobble, Robert D. Cocke, Carol A. Cook, Laurie Hickman Cox, Lee Baxter Davis, Laurence Edwards, David Everett, Barnaby Fitzgerald, Scott Gentling, Miles Cleveland Goodwin, Ira Greenberg, Otis Huband, Sedrick Huckaby, Anita Huffington, Kathryn Keller, Sirena LaBurn, Emily LaCour, Rudolf Sotelo Lailson, Jungeun Lee, Laurie Lipton, Jun-Cheng Liu, William B.

You can see the exhibit from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every Monday-Saturday through October 31. Masks are required, but there is no need to make a reservation beforehand. This exhibition is held in memory of Lu Ann Barrow (1934-2020), whose paintings “enriched our lives with uplifting parables on being human,” according to the Vogels.
