Sandler Center Art Gallery Hosts Exhibit “Built to Last ” by Scott Fredrick Sept. 7 through Nov. 7

Tuesday, September 05, 2017

The Sandler Center for the Performing Arts is proud to announce that it will host Scott Fredrick's exhibit, "Built to Last" beginning Sept. 7.

Fredrick's work is generally inspired by focusing his attention inward. He creates images based on his perspective, feelings and overall identity. The experiences and emotions are uniquely his, but can be identified and shared universally by each person in his or her own way.

The mixed media pieces featured in Fredrick's exhibit use paint, collage and various image transfer methods. Fredrick uses a variety of techniques to create different textures and layers in each piece. Color changes unfold gradually or drastically based on the layers, as well as subtle to dramatic textural variations. His goal is to produce multifaceted works that capture emotions. His works are designed to be viewed again and again, allowing one to discover elements not seen at first glance.

The exhibit will be on view in the second and third floor lobbies from Sept. 7 through Nov. 7, 2017 during the Sandler Center's normal operating hours: Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or during any performance at the Sandler Center, 201 Market St., Virginia Beach.

There will be a free artist reception held at the Sandler Center on Thursday Sept. 14, from 6 to 8 p.m.  The Art Gallery is on the second and third floors in the common areas of the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts.

The role of the Office of Cultural Affairs is to develop the vision and direction of the cultural arts in Virginia Beach, assist and direct the Virginia Beach Arts and Humanities Commission, coordinate the city's Public Art Program, provide contract management for the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, serve as the liaison with Virginia MOCA and the ViBe Creative District, and serve as a resource to local arts and humanities organizations.
