Current Gallery Exhibit

"Facets of the Human" Paintings by Mustapha Kandouz

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is pleased to exhibit "Facets of the Human" now through March 29, 2018 featuring the work of Mustapha Kandouz.

There will be a Free Reception to celebrate Mustapha Kandouz's work at The Village Theater on March 1, 2018 from 7 - 9 p.m.

Mustapha Kandouz is a Cancer Researcher which he undoubtedly knows that his inclination for things artistic has tremendously shaped his career in science.  According to Mr. Kandouz, "To this very day, I still wonder what my life would have been like, had I not resisted for so long the urges to paint and had I kept the flame kindled.  Painting is a long-lost first love, one that I recently found, while dealing with the frustrations inherent to scientific research."

Mustapha Kandouz's work walks an edge between abstraction and figuration.  His art work is an attempt to reconcile freedom and meaning.  Mr. Kandouz is mainly interested in the human condition, and what it means and how it is shaped by modernity.  Mustapha has lived in four different countries on three continents, and has seen firsthand that no matter our origins or cultures, we share fundamental attributes of "humanness", especially when humans deal with aspirations, hopes, fears, anxieties, love, loss, longing for dignity, freedom and meaning.  It is that deep humanness and how it copes with contemporary challenges that Mr. Kandouz is interested in exploring.

This current art exhibit at the Gallery@VT is free and open to the public: Monday – Friday 10 am – 2 pm, one hour prior to and during public performances at the theater, as well as by appointment.  The Gallery@VT is closed on holidays.  The gallery is located at 50400 Cherry Hill Rd., Canton, MI, 48187.  For more information about this latest exhibit, please call 734/394-5300.
