“Folk Beasts explores the realms of magical and diverse creatures”
The LCVA is proud to partner with the Hart Club and The Golden Thread Project with an exhibition of Folk Beasts.
Folk Beasts is a collaboration between London’s Hart Club and The Golden Thread Project, exploring the magical and diverse creatures celebrated via folklore throughout time. Initially conceived as an extensive group exhibition created via artist-led workshops, the current global pause led them to adapt the concept. They invited a selection of artists to create make-at-home Art Packs, enabling people to participate remotely in a user-generated online art exhibition.
Combining The Golden Thread Project’s extensive knowledge and love for all things folklore, the LCVA’s downtown Farmville gallery space, with the Hart Club’s diverse audience, all seek to create a magical world full of freshly conceived and reimagined folk beasts.
“Our aim is to popularise folklore through collaborations with artists, writers and musicians”
The Longwood Centre for the Visual Arts is collaborative forum for students and faculty of Longwood University and the people of South Central Virginia to explore visual art and its relevance to everyday life.
It presents a rotating program of inspiring and conversation-starting exhibitions. Admission to LCVA and its programs is—and always has been—free for all. It is located at the intersection of Main and Third Streets (129 North Main Street) in Farmville, Virginia.
