The Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery will host its new gallery exhibit, “2020 in Review,” from Tuesday, Jan. 26, through Friday, March 5.
The exhibit will feature the works of Cheryl Mackian, the Radford Photo Club and Teresa Regil, artists who exhibited in the gallery during 2020.
For Floyd-based artist Cheryl Mackian, the use of light, vibrant color and unique angles of perspective are her trademarks. Her work features people, architecture and the motion of the cities themselves. Her figures tend to be utterly focused in their everyday activities and lost in thought, conversation, viewing art or shopping for dinner. These quiet pieces are juxtaposed by a series of paintings that celebrate motion, color and the beat of big city life itself.
Radford is a special place, and the works of the Radford Photo Club have captured just some of the many elements that make it special. From its historic treasures to its people and from the railroad to the university, the Radford Photo Club’s members have assembled an eclectic collection of images that speak of Radford. The photographers featured in the show are Joyce Crowder, Rebecca Harris, Deborah Ring, Joyce Sims, Brian Smith, Susan Trulove and Linda Waggaman.
Artist Teresa Regil discovered her passion for painting almost by accident after many years of being a mother, an entrepreneur and a dentist. She realized she had an ability that enabled her to draw the likeness of her favorite subjects: her family members. Born in Mexico City, Teresa is now established in Radford as a happy Abuela (grandmother) and portrait artist. Self-taught, guided by masters such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, she creates her portraits in oil and incorporates a myriad of techniques, including alla prima, an indirect approach and mixed media.
The exhibit will be open to the public. There is no admission charge.
