Richmond, VA – artspace is pleased to present five new gallery exhibitions, featuring artists Adam Bradley, Nick Candela, Jennifer Printz, Martha Prideaux, and a group exhibition of work by artspace Artist Members. Exhibition dates are July 26 through August 18, 2019. An Opening Reception for the Artists will take place on Friday, July 26, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. This event will be Free and Open to the Public. A closing talk will take place on Sunday, August 18, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. This event will also be Free and Open to the Public.

In the Main Gallery, Adam Bradley presents Vulnerable and Predatory. This body of work is a response to feelings of grief, isolation and the powerlessness of loss. Bradley's figures are shown with varying degrees of disfigurement which represent feelings of helplessness, desperation, and a loss of self in a world that no longer makes sense. Based in Washington D.C, Adam is primarily a figure sculptor, constructing work from found materials such as welded steel, wood, cast metal and ceramics. He teaches 2d and 3d Foundations, Drawing and Sculpture at George Mason University, Northern Virginia Community College and Catholic University. His work has been showcased in Atlantic Gallery, Chelsea, New York, 2018 Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial in Washington D.C., and Hillyer Art Space.

On view in the Helena Davis Gallery: Dealing with the Archive by Richmond artist Nick Candela. Candela's work is born of images plucked from various media which are reused to create dissonance. His paintings consist of images and text that meld assorted themes into collages of often absurd scenes. He received his MFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2017. Candela's work can be found in permanent collections at the University of Mary Washington and the Savannah College of Art and Design, and in private collections across the country. He has been featured in Studio Visit Magazine, CreativPaper, and Whurk Magazine.

Gentle Equanimity, mixed media drawings by Jennifer Printz, will be featured in the Frable Gallery. For Printz, there is something that makes her "wonder about the imperceptible quality of stars in the noonday sun, what forces hold clouds up in the sky, and what arranges the sundry of the universe." Her work explores the relationship of these things and a faith in their existence. Through a buildup of graphite or manual printing relief block, she asserts her hand over photographs she has taken of the sky over her home. Printz earned her MFA from the University of Georgia in 2001. Her work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions across the country. Jennifer lives in southwest Virginia.

smallspace Gallery features the oil and cold wax paintings of Martha Prideaux's Grounded in Water. Prideaux says, "I am trying to create work that balances the effect of human choice with chance, futility, nature and other forces that we may not be able to control, understand or even recognize." Martha has been using oil paints and cold wax medium to create abstract paintings since 2017. Born in Virginia, raised in North Carolina, and a high school student in St. Louis, Prideaux came to Richmond to attend the University of Richmond. She is married with two sons and two dogs.

The Suzanne Foley Gallery will show The Hard and the Soft, works in all media by artspace Artist Members.

The gallery will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays in July and August, 2019. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 12-4 p.m. Please contact the gallery administrator at artspaceorg@gmail.com, or phone the gallery at 804-232-6464 for additional information. The gallery is located at Zero East 4th Street in Richmond, Virginia 23224, with a second door at 31 E. 3rd St., and online at www.artspacegallery.org.
