Clearly Unusual (Closed)

Oct 6, 2013

Extended!  Art-peekers welcome (M-F 9am-5pm) thru Mon 7 Oct.  Aaron Shifflett's art on layers of clear plastic seems somewhere between painting and sculpture. They're thick-as-a-brick and yet also airy.

Deadpan Alley (Closed)

May 16, 2013

If one passes by 5000 scenes in a typical commute, maybe one might be "funny" somehow --and photographer Jeff James will notice.  Humor and a sort of pop art irony and social critique appear. Now hanging and up until Thurs 30 May 2013, a collection of his art photos / visual jokes will hang at PublicRadioArtSpace in WMRA's Harrisonburg facility. Art peekers welcome weekdays 9-5. 

Phenomena (Closed)

Dec 20, 2012

Through Thr 31 Jan 2013, the art show at WMRA's Harrisonburg facility will include altered photos by  Corinne Diop and Susan Zurbrigg in an exhibit called Phenomena.  Art peekers welcome 9-5 weekdays. 

DinoHenge Whacktasticness (Closed)

Oct 31, 2012

DinoHenge Whacktasticness --closes  Thurs 1 Nov 2012. Oddest. Exhibit. Ever. (Wonderfully so!)  FoamHenge/DinosaurLand sculptor Mark Cline, DC pubs decorator Lee Wheeler, and zen-chainsaw sculptor Glenn Richardson amuse the weirder parts of your mind.  Art peekers welcome 9-5 weekdays. 

Beat, Ball, & Bloom Happening (9-13-2012)

Aug 23, 2012

Event was 9-13-2012. Allen Ginsberg posse-member Gordon Ball will describe the how-and-why of his own historic photos of the epic Beat poet's most private world. Ball documented Ginsberg's personal life as no outsider could. WMRA's art exhibit of Ball's images has been extended and ends with  this informal gallery talk at the Harrisonburg studio.  Snacks, music from The Bloom Trio. The Beat, Ball, & Bloom Happening.  

Our most recent art exhibit featured private images of epic Beat writer Allen Ginsberg and friends as photographed by Ginsberg-insider Gordon Ball (now of Lexington, Va).
