The Main Gallery will feature replica: A show by Heath Montgomery. Every year, AVA hosts an annual Juried Member Exhibition. The artist whose work scores highest in the jury process is awarded a solo exhibit of their work in the Main Gallery at AVA the following year. In 2021, as a first in that tradition, Heath Montgomery tied for “Best in Show” with Donald Keefe and each artist was granted a solo exhibit. replica is a collection of recent works created by Montgomery exploring the idea of “the copy” and “the original,” with works ranging from painting, sculpture, and digital interactive pieces. These precise and dynamic works incorporate imagery from Ancient Western Art History, science, and contemporary technologies.
