The Village Theater At Cherry Hill's Doug Cannell Exhibition Extended Through February 2014

Canton, MI – February 6, 2014 - The Village Theater at Cherry Hill announces the extension of its current exhibition, "Art & Invention: The Sculpture of Doug Cannell," on display now through February 27, 2014 in the Gallery@VT, located at 50400 Cherry Hill Road in Canton, MI 48187.

This award-winning artist works primarily in abstract forms fabricated from steel, often contrasting organic and industrial elements. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Cannell earned a BFA degree from Wayne State University and went on to create and exhibit his sculptures throughout Michigan. Cannell's works, known for celebrating materials and their journey to decay, often incorporate found metal parts into their structure.

Originally drawn to clay, Cannell began using steel as the basis for his pieces in the early 1990s. Still living and working in the Detroit area, Cannell often showcases rusted, reclaimed steel in his sculptures, punctuated with other materials such as bare wood, polished stainless steel, clay, copper, encaustic paint, and rubber. In addition, Cannell's works are often distinguished by his use of contrasts of materials, textures, and the juxtaposition of the organic and the industrial. Cannell's sculptures are also heavily influenced by his work as a graphic designer, a field in which he has worked steadily since 1985.

Cannell, who currently resides in West Bloomfield, Michigan, presents a collection of artistic inventions; each piece is unique, yet tied together by Cannell's distinctive style. Works of this award-winning artist will be on display Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., as well as during public performances at the theater and also by appointment. The Gallery@VT is closed on holidays.

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is a regional center for the arts that offers the magic of live theatre, soul-stirring music, the thrill of the dance, and the enjoyment of fine art exhibitions and events, in addition to providing a home for several cultural organizations and community groups.
