What happens when something falls apart?
“Where the Pieces Fall,” a new exhibit at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, opened yesterday. The exhibit spotlights the work of 15 different resident artists.
The theme invites artists to explore the impact of dissolution — whether that entails putting elements back together or transforming them into something new. With the diversity of mediums and artistic backgrounds represented in the group, there’s many different responses to the central question.
The exhibit was also a chance for the artists to collaborate with other residents, experiment with new forms, and switch up their plans while creating individual pieces.
Several of the featured artists are River City locals, including award-winning quilt artist + illustrator Unicia Buster, image-maker Aurele Gould, fabric artist Eileen Morley, and decorative artist Karyn Vice. For full bios of all the participating artists, check out the website.
“Where the Pieces Fall” will be on display at the True F. Luck Gallery at the Visual Arts Center on West Main Street through Sun., Nov. 7.
An opening reception is scheduled for Thurs., Nov. 4 from 6-8 p.m., or you can stop by on weekdays from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. or on weekends from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
