Matt Lively

Matt Lively is this year’s Juror and Judge. Lively is a sculptor, painter, and muralist living in Richmond, Virginia. He has designed installations, worked on films, and illustrated books. Lively tries to let his work be defined more by an openness to new ideas and opportunities than by working solely in one particular medium. His success over 25 years is a result of learning through mistakes combined with the collective wisdom of others. Collaborating with other passionate people always presents new avenues to explore that Lively believes he would never be able to experience working on his own. Lively makes images that suggest a story without a beginning or end. Learning to stop before the piece reveals too much is the most delicate aspect of his process. When not in his studio, Lively can be found teaching at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School.


Live music will be provided by the Clan MacCool Band. 

Clan MacCool is a highly interactive band that specializes in Irish/Scottish traditional music. They offer an array of Celtic traditional (and not so traditional) songs, tunes, and reels. Pulling from old Celtic music, sea chanties and our own music over the course of nearly two decades, Clan MacCool continues to entertain, educate and enthrall!


The opening will take place on Friday, October 7th from 6:00pm-8:00pm. This event is free and open to the public. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Thank you to our sponsors, Will & Tish Grant!
