The Purcellville Arts Council Announces Eric Wickstrom Exhibit
June 1, 2016 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Town Hall, 221 South Nursery Ave Council Chambers Purcellville, VA 20132
From the town’s release:
“The second in a series of 3-month long art exhibits in Purcellville’s Town Hall features the works of local artist Eric Wickstrom. The show runs from April 25th to June 30th, 2016. The first floor corridors of Town Hall now have a gallery-level hanging system which creates an opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work. Art exhibitions in Town Hall also ensure that all members of the public have access to art.
Meet-The-Artist reception will take place in Purcellville’s Town Hall on Wednesday, June 1st, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The public is welcome to join Eric Wickstrom and the Purcellville Arts Council in a celebration of Wickstrom’s work. The show may otherwise be seen according to regular Town Hall office hours (Mon. – Fri. 8:00am – 5:00pm except holidays). Photography is a lifelong interest for Eric (as he prefers to be called). He took his first “serious” photograph as a teenager. He was serving on shipboard in the US Navy in the late 1950s and following one very lucky shot, he decided to study how to best repeat that success more often than failing at it. That has led to an enduring effort to understand the fundamentals of light, color and composition… a process that continues to this day.”
