Richmond, VA – artspace is pleased to present radius250 2017. The exhibition opens on Friday, May 26nd, with a juror's talk and awards at 7:30 p.m., followed by a reception from 7-10p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. The Luckies will perform before and after the talk and awards.

Selected works have been juried by Francis Thompson, Art Program Project Manager, JLL. Over the past decade, Francis has managed a team responsible for maintaining and expanding a contemporary corporate art collection installed within office buildings throughout North America. During the early part of his role with the collection, he lead the curatorial development of its rotating exhibition program which has grown to between seventy and eighty shows a year. On display within the corporate offices, these exhibitions brought in artwork from non-profit art organizations, local museums, university art departments, and corporate employees.

Francis has worked as Assistant Gallery Director for the Ellipse Art Center in Arlington, VA, assistant coordinator for the Mountain Lake Workshops with director/producer Ray Kass, and as Gallery Coordinator for the Virginia Tech Armory Gallery. A native of Virginia, he holds a Master of Fine Arts in Arts Administration and a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art with concentration in painting and drawing from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, VA.
