A beautiful space filled with an appreciative crowd on a gorgeous summer evening in Virginia featuring art by the ulluh.  What’s not to love?

The Barns of Rose Hill Upper Gallery, Berryville, VA

More about the show here.

Watching the builds.

Appreciating the medium.

The artist himself, relaxing into the groove with Laura Kitselman.

 

The show runs through July 2nd.  Well worth a visit.

 

And then a small reception.

Fabulous.  Magical.  The ulluh makes a mark.

 

Ulluh Hangs a Show

In the end it is a sight to behold.  That is, the transformation from a workaday, poorly conceived upper gallery blank slate into a thoughtful exhibition of great beauty and striking talent. Feast your eyes on this…

The (almost) final instantiation of digital psychedelic art by ulluh

 

This is the first formal showing of ulluh’s art on planet earth, and it is an incredible testament to the power of digital art and artistic vision.

Here’s how the show went up.

Stands for the digital displays (seven of them in the show, all told), five on these rolling stands.

 

This window required covering, and the space could use some chopping up and conceptual clarity.

That’s more like it.  The blue leaks into the great hall like the glow of an old school TV.  All intentional design.

Screens booting up.  Each of these displays show three pieces in a six minute cycle.  They are synchronized.  The art gets an opportunity to speak for itself.

Romey’s couch and a 10.5 by 8 feet divider create a space for more intentional viewing.  This is where the absolutely stunning builds are shown in an 18 minute loop.  Watching the artist’s creative process is both informative and captivating.  Wow.  Once again, the blue light brings the space an altered reality.

Shadow box frames hover off the wall.

The rest of the space creates a natural eddy, flowing around the room, drawing the viewer in.

The prints go up, each its own reflection of a digital display.

A build caught in early action.

This art is the result of hundreds of hours of painstaking and thoughtful work.  Each piece has a deep story to tell.  Lean more here.

The show runs at the Barns of Rose Hill through July 2nd.

Nancy Polo, a Clarke county artist, recently put on a solo show of her work at the Barns of Rose Hill.  Lots of hard work paid off.  Here are some bits from my visit.

The artist herself gave me a tour (lucky dog)

I love how this lady’s crazy hair and the bird have something in common.

Great show.

This has nothing to do with anything

First a story of the lighting through the photography of Amy Barley.

And that is how you turn the sun.

Things looked pretty much like this before we started

Then there were several undocumented hours in the river with the special beer float courtesy of Aubrey. We’re still not sure where he is.

The most popular guest of all was baby Cora. (Yes, that is the three McGraw brothers in kilts.)

This shot by my brother walt (at his first solstice) is one of my favorites.

From the bridge

Spectacular

When the fire burned down enough to get within 100 feet, we started the music.

Burning pile

Joel Winstead created some great sketches in real time.

The the thunderstorm moved in around 11pm and we shifted the music to the barn. We played until 4am. What a joy.
