“American Skin” : Second Saturday Art Opening with Nym Pedersen at Art on the Trax

May 15, 2015 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Free

Art on the Trax will present “American Skin” by Nym Pedersen during the month of June, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on June 13th.

Local artist, Nym Pedersen says of his show: “The subject of color difference is the broad theme of “American Skin.” I have chosen a group of work that reflects my own contemplations and experiences regarding race in America over many years.  Not only in the sense of a black/white dichotomy but more broadly from the perspective of different skin color, and how that visual variation defines so many aspects of life here and around the world.  “From many come one” is a difficult myth to bring to life, but it does happen.  I borrowed the title of the show from a song of the same name by Bruce Springsteen.  Boss, don’t sue me.”

Please join us for our Second Saturday Opening Reception on June 13th.  This reception is part of Crozet’s Second Saturday events and runs from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.  We’ll be serving up The Art Box’s famous ice cream sundaes topped with fruit from local orchards.

All events are free and open to the public. Art on the Trax is located in Creative Framing and The Art Box, across from the Olde Crozet Train Station, 5784 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia.
