Where there’s light, there must be shadow. From Caravaggio to Monet to Ansel Adams, artists use their talents and tools to capture the detail and many subtleties of play between light and shadow. Whether an artist knows it or not, light and its contrast are essential to their craft in all mediums. Pieces that play with this dynamic were selected by juror Dr. Christopher C. Oliver, the Bev Perdue Jennings Assistant Curator of American Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for the 4th annual Light and Shadow exhibition. Out of 596 entries, 65 works by 60 artists will be on display in MFA’s online gallery, Curve Gallery, through January 31, 2022.
