The Flip Side
BOJUart gallery is pleased to present The Flip Side a group exhibition inviting the second annual ViBe Creative District Mural Festival artists to showcase their fine art. The ViBe Mural Festival, presented by TowneBank, features 10 new murals in 10 days by 10 artists.

The exhibition features the mural artists’ smaller, fine art. BOJUart Gallery Director Judy Jessen says “There’s a common misperception that mural artists only work on murals. There’s a fine art side to their creativity. I wanted this exhibit to expose that aspect.”

ViBe Mural Festival artists participating in The Flip Side include:

Schuyler Beecroft: acrylic and gouache on wood panel; acrylic, ink, and paper on wood panel; mural at Mary’s Restaurant Plaza

Currently located in San Francisco, 28 year old art director, designer, and artist was born and bred in Virginia Beach. Focused on dissecting and experimenting with visual attributions concerning design theory and the systematic implementation of “the grid.” @scuylerbeecroft

Naomi McCavitt of Thicket Design: gouache; decoupage on glass; mural at Prosperity Kitchen and Bakery
“We hold in our hands just one core belief. That in a world where people are as busy as they have ever been, we risk losing ourselves. We risk losing our humanity. The quiet self-reflections in nature that for thousands of years have brought stillness to the human experience are increasingly rare in our hurried urban life. Endangering all that we are, and have been. So we stand in defiance.” Thicket works with designers, retailers, and agencies who share this need to reconnect human to nature. We aspire to create modern heirlooms: hand-made artifacts of the natural world. @thicketdesign

Susan Tolbert: oil on canvas; mural at McKenzie Construction
Susan received a Master of Fine Arts from The George Washington University and has taught high school art classes for 12 years. In addition, she has taught for the Smithsonian’s continuing education program, the Chrysler Museum continuing education program, The Governor’s School, NPS’s summer gifted program and was an Adjunct Associate Professor at TCC’s VisualArtsCenter.

BOJUart donates a portion of every artist’s piece sold to a cause of their choice – creating a connection beyond art.

All work exhibited is available for sale at the gallery, online or by phone.
