Through May 17, 2015

artspace is pleased to present two new group exhibitions, which will run from April 24, 2015 – May 17, 2015. There will be an opening reception on Friday April 24th, from 7-10 p.m., which is free and open to the public. An Artist Talk will take place on Sunday, May 17 at 2 p.m., which is also free and open to the public.

The Suzanne Foley Gallery will feature "That-a-way: following the line to its final destination," mixed media works from Richmond artists. In the Main, Frable, Helena Davis and smallspace Galleries, twelve local and regional artists will present their doodle-oriented work, in "The Doodlists."

Doodling is not daydreaming. In fact, it’s the opposite. Studies have shown that doodling is a brain stimulator that promotes thinking and engages the mind, while relaxing it at the same time. It is scribbled focus, concentration in suspension. It is both creative stress relief and brain stimulation that allows for highly effective information retention. Everybody doodles, but for artists it is valuable resource in the creation of artwork, the beginning of new ideas and new concepts, particularly in fine arts. The aim of “The Doodlists” is to raise awareness of the use of doodling in the making of art, and to promote the fact that, rather than a waste of time, it is the essence of creative and focused thinking for artists and for the public at large.

Twelve artists will be featured in the show including: Duane Cregger, Dana Frostick, Shannon Gilbert, Dee Glazer, Leo Heinzel, Tracy Herman, Matt Lively, Ja Mes, Rob Ryder, Susan Singer, Henry Stindt and Roman Zelgatas.
