* Suzanne V. Paddock ExhibitSuzanne V. Paddock Exhibit

Bedford artist Suzanne Paddock's paintings will be on exhibit in Bower Center for the Arts' Terrace Gallery. The gallery is open for viewing Tuesday through Saturday 11 am to 4 pm. Oil Paintings by Suzanne V. Paddock In this world there are invisible threads connecting all that is around us as well as each one of us to another. Some of these threads are made in the forms of dreams, memories, relationships, and histories. They are sometimes broken through things like death, apathy, mental decline, and tragic loss. But are they really broken, or just pulled a little tight for a while? This exhibition is an exploration of connections I have found, shared, and defined as one or more of the following: the profound and the ridiculous; the realization that what is different is often really, very much the same; and how much can be reclaimed after what feels like the loss of everything. The application and technique in these pieces reflect my expressive style and focus on narrative energy. Not only can my paintings be viewed as places of visual rest, but also as transport to instigative places of intellectual challenge, provocation, contemplation, story -telling, and even humor.

* Young Artists at an ExhibitionYoung Artists at an Exhibition

Time: 3:00 PM

Young Artists at an Exhibition May 31st, 2015 3:00 pm Towns-Alumni Lecture Hall, Liberty University The Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra will conclude our thirty-second consecutive year with a full orchestra performance of Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky and Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar. In 1874, Mussorgksy composed a suite of ten character pieces inspired by the drawings and paintings of Viktor Hartmann, a young French artist. Taking a cue from the composer, the LSO is turning this model around to create art inspired by the music. As a special addition to the concert, we are partnering with students at T.C. Miller Elementary School for Innovation to showcase their art as a visual counterpart and backdrop for the music. We hope you will join us for the final performance of our 2014-2015 season, and will delight in both the musical and visual arts. Ticket Prices $20 Adult ($25 at the door) $5 Student ($10 at the door) Free! - Child Ticket Outlets Bloom by Doyles Givens Books and Little Dickens Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra office LynchburgTickets.com/lso Lynchburg Visitors Center
