TIME at the Selden Arcade
Exhibition combines video and local art to capture a year's worth of inspiration
NORFOLK, Va. – (October 2013) – The Chrysler Museum Roadshow’s newest exhibition at the Selden Arcade features Jennifer Steinkamp’s 2008 video installation, Orbit 3. The popular video serves as the inspiration for new works by artists from across Hampton Roads. The exhibition, TIME, is on view at the Selden Arcade from October 29 to January 11, 2014. Admission is free.
The exhibition packs a year's worth of seasons through the animated video that shows the four seasons through a flowing vision of the cycles of trees. Using the video as inspiration, local artists were asked to submit works for consideration. The exhibition, curated by Jeff Harrison, chief curator at the Chrysler Museum of Art, showcases 35 artworks from 27 artists.
Local artists include Al Benas, Jean Benvenuto, May Britton, Lucy Dierks, Bailey Dwiggins, Victor Frailing, Anna Freeman, Ragan Freeman, Fred Freeman, Christine Gamache, Linda Gissen, Nicole Harp, Janice Hathaway, Erlene Hendrix, Helen Jones, Barbara Hennig Loomis, Anne May, Michal Mitak, Mike Morgan, Vicki Norris, Ray and Martha Rountree, Mary Lee Ruff, Thomas Schultheis, Robert Sites, and Alex Venezia.
The Chrysler’s Selden Arcade gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. The Selden Arcade is located at 208 E. Main St. in downtown Norfolk. This exhibition is the last of the Chrysler’s Roadshow exhibitions at the Selden Arcade, which have been organized while the Museum is closed for a major expansion.
