Lost in Composition by Elisabeth Flynn-Chapman

Elisabeth Flynn-Chapman is Professor Emerita of Art and Architectural History with a collection of over 60 thousand photographic images. She has traveled and photographed the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Egypt, Jordan and China. These images are the result of her visual responses to everyday objects, buildings, wires, windows, etc. all of which have the basic elements of composition i.e. line, shape, color, space and texture. It is her hope that the viewers may enjoy these images and allow their imaginations to wander and dream new images of their own. This exhibit will in the Jane Sandelin Gallery

Recent Works by the Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association
The MRAA roots go back as far as 1955 with one of the founding members being Theresa Pollack. In 2003, two artist associations (West End Allied Artists Association and the Richmond Artists Association) combined to become the MRRA. This group of diverse artists exhibits in many galleries in the Richmond area. The exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.

Seen and Not Seen by Makenzie Goff
This ongoing series of intaglio portraits explores themes of anxiety, perception, and
memory. Goff’s subjects are found in everyday places but often become mythologized, due to their characteristics and eccentricities. She gives the subjects exaggerated and disproportionate features to demonstrate the nature of a memory influenced by anxious obsessions. In this way she is portraying how the people we encounter in our lives often seem real but also unreal.

This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery East.

Recent Works by Francis O'Donnell
Francis Daniel O'Donnell is an artist, author, poet, filmmaker, and explorer. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery West.
