This month\u2019s exhibits feature works by Cathy Johans and Nima ShahabShahmir, as well as Carnegie Hall\u2019s 29th Annual Juried Exhibit.\r\n\r\nThe Old Stone Room Gallery features Carnegie Hall\u2019s 29th Juried Exhibit \u201cAlternative Views.\u201d This collection of paintings was selected by a jury of artists based on originality, technical quality, and thematic depth. The art has not previously been shown at Carnegie Hall.\r\n\r\n\u201cReflections of Water\u201d by Cathy Johans is to be featured in The Lobby Gallery. Johans is an award-winning, self-taught artist originally from Southern California. She has lived in the Greenbrier Valley for more than 30 years where she paints using pastels. She credits much of her detailed drawing ability to careful study of the works of other accomplished artists and the world around her.\r\n\r\nThe Board Room Gallery presents art by Nima ShahabShahmir. Nima sees photography as a gate or a doorway to millions of possibilities. Capturing a moment in time and admiring the scene has taught him to look around constantly and find that perfect angle with all the beauty it holds. However, this artist\u2019s journey does not simply end here. He believes that every art related field is an ever-expanding universe of its own. The inspiration of using a single picture to create an imaginary idea has lead Nima to explore and create digital media collages, manipulating scenery images using software for creation of something unreal which did not exist before.\r\n\r\nCarnegie Hall September\/October exhibits are on display Sept. 7 through Oct. 27. They are free and open to the public and are open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. For more information, please visit carnegiehallwv.org, call 304-645-7917, or stop by the Hall at 611 Church Street, Lewisburg.\r\n\r\nPrograms in the Carnegie Hall 2018 season are presented with financial assistance through a grant from the WV Department of Arts, Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
