Keystone College Associate Professor Judith Lynn Keats’ artwork is featured in a juried exhibit, “Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art,” at the Museum of Shenandoah Valley (MSV), Winchester, Va. The exhibition will be on display through March 2015.
An exhibition of environmentally inspired contemporary art, the show features more than 250 pieces of art selected from an original collection of nearly 1100 pieces. The objects were created by participating artists who responded to an invitation issued by the Pennsylvania-based nonprofit, Landfillart Project to turn a discarded hubcaps into art.
Ms. Keats’ piece, “A Shaman’s Offering,” was created from a hubcap from a Packard One Twenty (1935-1937) and is comprised of bone, wood, stone, shell, and metal.
“I am exceedingly honored to have my work selected for inclusion in this prestigious and unique art reclamation project,” said Ms. Keats.
The Landfillart Project was launched in Pennsylvania in 2008 by arts entrepreneur and environmental advocate Kenneth Marquis, owner of galleries and art-supply and frame stores in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.
Ms. Keats holds master of fine arts degree from Goddard College, Plainfield, Vt., and a bachelor of fine arts degree from Wilkes University. Her artwork is in private, corporate, and public collections throughout the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.
