Opening Reception: Friday February 20th 7:00 – 9:00 PM

Nobile & Amundsen began two years ago as an experimental collaboration with Work Program Architects to contribute to the art dialogue in Norfolk, VA. In that time we’ve been honored to work with talented artists near and far. Thank you, WPA, and everyone else that has supported us. It’s been a fun ride.

Our final exhibit, End Transmission, features artwork by:

Schuyler Beecroft, Hampton Boyer, Adrian Landon Brooks, Christiana Caro, Leigh Anne Chambers, Vittorio Colaizzi, Peter Eudenbach, Sheila Giolitti, Brad Hall, Randy Hess, David Johnson, Bob Lake, Nikki Leone, Christopher Mahonski, Wade Mickley, Daniel Moore, Thomas Moore, Suzanne Peck, Lee Piechoki, Charlotte Potter, John Roth, John Rudel, Tim Skirven, Jason Stick, Jordan Swartz, John Vitale, and Thom White.

front-elevation-01WPA was selected by Pinecrest School to design a new Lower School in Annandale, Virginia to replace an existing school building. After touring the campus and meeting with teachers, parents, students, administrators, and the school’s board of directors, WPA worked with a group of Pinecrest stakeholders to design a facility that will fit the unique needs of the Pinecrest community; a community that emphasizes family involvement in education in an atmosphere that strives to support each student academically, socially, and emotionally.

smithfield-retreat-view-01WPA was hired to work with a local family to design a retreat house on the James River in Smithfield, Virginia. The Clients came to us with an idea for a modern barn and a desire for a place where family and friends could gather, read books, play games, and get away from the hustle and bustle of the work-week. The above drawings reflect our first-pass at a schematic design for a house that invites guests to gather in one open room, relax in front of the fire, and hang out on a bluff above the James River.

Tim Bearse

Bed Nappings and Fruit Off the Vine

 

Opening Reception: Friday December 5th 7:00 – 9:00 PM

Tim Bearse’s sculptures and mixed-media artwork reference the composition, form, and velocity of skateboarding videos. His objects, which at first glance appear to be modernist abstractions, borrow their shape from concrete swimming pools and community-built ramps. The referents, and their larger culture, are specific, though they ultimately point toward something larger: the built environment’s capacity for intervention, collectivization and empathy; the creative potential of kinesthetic awareness; the complexities of tactile, modular forms; and speed as a method of non-lingual communication.
