“Art in City Hall” Reception Monday

If you haven’t seen the Art in City Hall exhibit yet (at — where else? — Alexandria City Hall), Monday’s opening reception is the perfect opportunity. The reception is at 5:30 in room 2000 of City Hall (301 King St.).

Art in City Hall, now in its seventh year, is a partnership between The Art League, Del Ray Artisans, the Torpedo Factory Artists Association, and the Alexandria Commission for the Arts. Since the first show, in February 2006, the shows have hung twice a year in City Hall, sharing works of art with the community and giving artists a new venue for exposure.

The exhibit can also be viewed weekdays on the second floor of City Hall. Check it out!

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
