Conceived and organized by The Pit, an artist-run gallery located on Ruberta Street in Glendale, Vision Valleyfeatures works in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, video, photography, and film. There are no conceptual, political, or philosophical themes upon which the exhibition turns, and it does not claim to distill a particular trend, aesthetic, or idea. Instead, what is on view is a diverse selection of works that are part of an ongoing, dynamic multilogue between 32 artists living or working in the specific geographical area of Glendale, with the exception of famed photographer Edward Weston (1886-1958). Weston first visited Glendale (then known as Tropico) in 1906, subsequently setting up his photography studio in 1910. His inclusion enriches the exhibition with a significant bit of Glendale history.
A limited edition poster has been designed, printed, and published by The Pit and will be available at the opening.
Vision Valley will be on view at Brand Library & Art Center (1601 W. Mountain St. Glendale, CA 91201), from May 5, 2018 through June 22, 2018. The opening reception on Saturday, May 5 from 6-9pm is FREE and open to the public.
