VCCA Fellows to Exhibit in Lynchburg
The work of VCCA Fellows Ed Epping, Shirley Nisbet and Ryan Russell will be exhibited at Riverviews Artspace in downtown Lynchburg beginning July 4 in The Vanishing Landscape exhibit. Each artist’s work is a reflection of their view of the environment that surrounds them and each has an intimate connection to the land as they are constantly viewing it and trying to understand its changing aesthetics. They use landscape painting to comment, to varying degrees, on environmental degradation and global warming they see around them.
