Scott Fredrick, art teacher at Holland Elementary School, has been selected by the City of Virginia Beach’s Office of Cultural Affairs to exhibit his artwork in the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts Gallery. The exhibit, titled “Built to Last,” is free and open to the public Sept. 7 through Nov. 7.
Fredrick applied for public exhibition opportunity and was notified in June of his selection. According to an Office of Cultural Affairs news release: “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.”
Approximately 25 works will be on display, and Fredrick will auction off one of his works at the exhibit’s opening reception scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 14, from 6-8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Proceeds from Fredrick’s art auction will benefit the Sandler Center Foundation which provides grants to schools, including VBCPS Title I schools, to cover the cost of education programs presented at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts.
The gallery is located on the second and third floors in the common areas of the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts located at 201 Market Street. The public may visit the gallery during the Sandler Center’s regular 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.
