Photography Exhibit by Langley Anderson
Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of its new gallery exhibit “Mutualism” featuring the photography of Langley Anderson. The exhibit will be on display now through October 31. The Glencoe Mansion will host an opening reception for Langley Anderson on Thursday, September 16, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
In her show, “Mutualism,” Anderson brings together an eclectic set of images that speak to the essence of her work. Her pieces range from photographic explorations of classic cars to fantastic scientific images capturing what the naked eye can’t see.
With her images of cars, she strives to highlight the beauty within their design and bring them from the garage to the gallery. With her photography of what is usually thought of as scientific, Anderson employs what she terms, “Mutualism,” which captures the intersection of science and art. Using scanning electron and stereo microscopes, she brings to the gallery the minute details of nature showing their inherent beauty. She also approaches the subject of music with her “Mutualism,” showing the viewer what music feels like to her through color and imagery.
Langley Anderson calls Radford home, but she grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Trinity University, San Antonio, and earned her Master of Fine Arts in studio art, with a concentration in photography, from Radford University. Langley runs Wild ArtRidge Academy in Radford, works as a free-lance photographer, and teaches Art Appreciation, 2-D Foundations, and Photography at Radford University.
For the September 16 opening, MountainTrotter Arts will also be on site to debut their newest community project, a Little Free Art Library located at the Glencoe Mansion grounds. Volunteer members will be accepting both monetary contributions and donations of gently used art books. The Little Free Art Library will have a rotating collection of art history and art instructional books that will be available for all ages to borrow, use, or keep with the goal of making art accessible to all.
Everyone is welcome to attend the opening reception and to visit the museum. There is no admission charge. In accordance with current guidelines, face masks are required for entry into the museum. “Mutualism” will be on display through October 31.
