A photography exhibit by Peter Myma titled, “Specific Gravity” will be on display in the photography gallery, located in Virginia Intermont College’s Anne Worrell Fine Arts Center from November 11th through December 1st. The display exhibits Myma’s view of the world, in which he explores the anonymous art of the ordinary artifact. Myma likens his vision to Ralph Waldo Emerson’s viewpoint, which bypasses the superficialities of commercial culture to find character in utilitarian things and common place settings.
Myma will host a discussion session on December 1st, at 7:00 p.m in the Recital Hall, located in Virginia Intermont College’s Anne Worrell Fine Arts Center. The exhibit contains 19 paintings, which exhibit Myma’s development of style, theme and content.
Peter Myma studied at the “New Bauhaus” and has undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Institute of Design at Illinois Institute of Technology. Over the last two decades he has lived and photographed throughout the United States and the world. Additionally, he consults and teaches in private and corporate collections in the United States, Europe and Asia.
