Donna hosts the Lens-Artist challenge this week. The theme is over the hill. She gave many ideas to interpret the theme and I am sharing some images from Friday night at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
We are well OVER THE HILL of the pandemic – gathering again (without masks) and it was nice to see a crowd.
Above – Lady with colored hair (to match her skirt) and up, over the hill, to her left are all the people.

Once you climb the hill, you see the sculptures.
Things are looking up!
Above: Family-friendly place….
Below: Hubs and I near the Chihuly Reeds.
These next images (below) are from the Tsherin Sherpa exhibit.
Sherpa is a Nepalese-born Tibetan American artist and the exhibition had 36 of his paintings and sculptures.
I like the mood and shadows of the patrons viewing the art.
The Sherpa art exhibit also fits the “over-the-hill” theme – because the museum brochure noted that this was Sherpa’s “middle-career” exhibit:
“This focused mid-career retrospective is the global artist’s first solo museum exhibition.”
So mid-career is close to over the hill, right?
We didn’t care for Sherpa’s art content, but the Wishing Well sculpture (below) was our favorite piece at the exhibit.
In other parts of the museum, we also found a nice groove
This last photo was down below, once you get back over the hill, and I like the silhouette of the circle art on the right and the man to the left – and then the window lines and chair shapes.
Thanks for checking out this post.
Have you been to any art museums lately?
