The Greenbrier County Convention and Visitors Bureau (GCCVB) has a surprising display for the April Art in the Valley exhibit. Large, colorful props used in multiple Trillium dances are the subject of the show entitled “Art That Moves You.” The exhibit also includes photos of the props in use during performances, along with the name of the dance, dancers and other details.
Choreographer of Trillium Performing Arts Collective, Carli Mareneck, assembled the pieces. “These props were made to come to life on stage, so it is a new idea to share them in a gallery setting,” said Mareneck. In addition to Mareneck, many other artists collaborated in the creation of the props including Zarina Mareneck, Michael Buttrill, Jude Binder, Joe Chasnoff and others.
The Visitors Center began the Art in the Valley project as a way to provide local artists with an exhibition space. Each month the Visitors Center showcases a different artist or collections of artists. Art in the Valley is free and open to the public.
