Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 6:00pm

Art After Dark Presents- Join the Instagram Revolution with Dr. Alec Hosterman. The LCVA invites Dr. Hosterman, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Longwood University for a hands-on workshop where you get a crash course in the basics of photography-what works, what doesn't. 

You will learn how to take images using instagram, edit images using instagram filters, manually edit images, how to choose the right hastags to get noticed and how to publish images to multiple social media accounts. 

Join Dr. Hosterman at the LCVA on Wednesday, September 20 to learn more. Doors open at 6:00pm for refreshments and the program starts at 6:30.

Art After Dark replaces the formal “lecture” format normally associated with museums with interdisciplinary activities such as this art workshop. The evening gatherings have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages engaging conversation. All activities are completely free of charge and open to the public.

The LCVA is a 20,000-square-foot exhibition center featuring two rotating galleries that have shown works of worldwide importance, including the award-winning Reflecting Centuries of Beauty: The Rowe Collection of Chinese Art, the nationally traveled Pre-Columbian Art from the Mississippi Museum of Art, and a steady stream of solo and group exhibitions for nationally known artists such as Faith Ringgold, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Lesley Dill, David Macaulay, and Kojo Griffin.

The LCVA also dedicates one gallery to a permanent exhibition of stunning African art, part of the Ziegler and Brumfield Collections of African Art. In 1997 Robert Ziegler, a longtime resident of Africa, established this collection with twenty-six important pieces. In 1999, Thomas and Donna Brumfield donated an additional eighty-eight works of African art. The collection includes an impressive array of statues, masks, drums, baskets, and garments, covering four geographical areas, twelve countries, and twenty-seven cultures. A catalog of this collection, Telling Objects: African Art from the Permanent Collection of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, is available.
