Exhibitions August 24 - September 23, 2018

Richmond, VA – artspaceis pleased to present five new gallery shows, featuring abstract and figurative works by Wingchow, drawings by Lauren Scavo, a showcase of work by artists from Studio Two Three, collage by Andy Harris, and works in all media by artspace Artist Members.

Exhibition dates are August 24 through September 23, 2018. An Opening Reception for the Artists will take place on Friday, August 24, 2018, from 6:00-9:00 pm. This event will be Free and Open to the Public. A closing artist talk will take place Sunday, September 23, 2018 at 2:00pm. This event will also be Free and Open to the Public.

On view in the Main Gallery will be Flux, abstracts and figurative works by Wingchow. Wingchow describes her work as, "organic eye candy on canvas and wood." She continues, "Everything around us is constantly moving and changing. My fascination in this natural state expressed itself in my work long before I consciously acknowledged it. I paint intuitively, and improvisation is key." Her works are primarily composed of unplanned amorphous forms that stay open to reinterpretation throughout much of the process. Flux is an exploration of these forms. "It is inspired by movement, and driven by weird thoughts, restless energy, and the need for free play," she says.

The Frable Gallery will feature Commonplace, charcoal drawings by Lauren Scavo. "The drawings in this exhibition are an examination of the relationship between human consciousness and the external environment," Scavo says. "The intimate scale and atmosphere of the work invites viewers to introspection and contemplation as they experience these familiar environments in a different context." Scavo works with landscapes because she feels there is a potential for expressiveness inherent in the depiction of organic forms. "I am also drawn to them because they are both universal and personal," she says. "They are intertwined in both individual lives and collective histories, and are historically and culturally relevant in the art community and in the larger world. Though they are constantly changing, they are ever-present."

In the Helena Davis Gallery S23 presents Studio Two Three: Members Only. Work by studio artists and members of Studio Two Three, a non-profit organization in Scott's Addition offering studio space for individual artists, a shared workshop for printmakers and classes for creatives, makers, and artists in all media.

In the smallspace Gallery, Andy Harris presents The Collage Will Save Your Soul, works in collage. "My collages read as simple objects. Articles of trash floating down the street are portrayed in a way that compounds the true nature of their existence. I'm drawn to producing gravity and dimension while creating work that is playful and energetic. I walk, I collect, I produce."

The Suzanne Foley Gallery will show Long Story Short – capturing the essence, works in all media by artspace Artist Members.

Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 12-4pm. The gallery is also open by appointment. Please contact the gallery administrator at artspaceorg@gmail.com or phone the gallery at (804) 232-6464. artspace gallery is located at Zero East 4th Street in Richmond, Virginia 23224. An additional entrance is available at 31 East 3rd Street, Richmond, VA 23224.
