Contemporary art, interdisciplinary research communities, and traditional Appalachian culture converge in "Rural Avant-Garde: The Mountain Lake Experience," an exhibition showcasing the collaborative creative works that emerged the Mountain Lake Workshop series, which spanned four decades.
The exhibition will be on view November 16, 2019 – March 8, 2020, with an opening reception on November 15 from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue (published by Longwood University in association with the University of Virginia Press) provide an important record of MLW within the context of contemporary creative practice. Complementary programs, carefully structured to replicate the dynamic, collaborative explorations that MLW nurtured, will provide important context for these nationally significant experimental art happenings.
