Out / Side / In by Daniel Travis Bice
Daniel Bice is inspired by dramatic emotions, and he explores these through kinetic scenes, harsh lighting and contrasting colors. He investigates the various facets of isolation—self-imposed and isolation through society, including self-isolation fed by thoughts, solitude or fear. In this exhibit he achieves a kind of juxtaposition of the tangled and surreal intensity of inner emotions with the serenity or unbearable cacophony of social reality.
This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery.
All Stories Great and Small by Wendy Nelson
Where life exists, stories happen. Wendy Nelson, a Virginia Master Naturalist has been known to sit in the same spot for days to capture just the perfect moment. In this exhibit she brings these moments to us through the lens of her fine art photography. Her work has been published on National Geographic.com and in The Virginia Wildlife Magazine. Her hope is to share the amazing world, glimpses of different lives from all perspectives, from creatures great and small. She says: “With each picture, we can see a glimpse into the life of another. With each glimpse, we can better envision the different stories of our world. One story alone does not compose the book of life; I hope that through my collection, I can record more chapters of that book for you to read, as you see All Stories Great and Small.” This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
On Broad Rocks by Joseph Gottlich
This exhibition is a photographic essay about Richmond’s treasure on the James. The broad rocks of Belle Isle have been the site of industrial and historical significance for the city; from a nail factory and ironworks that provided steel for Chrysler, to a notorious Civil War POW camp, to providing electricity to the first city-wide electric power transit system in the country. It is the intersection of this history, the island’s natural elements, and the current industrial decay that is explored in the exhibit. Understanding the history of a place or object brings depth to the photography. This exhibition features industrial/urban decay locations as nature reclaims the space. An avid photographer, Gottlich tends to focus on industrial and urban elements, juxtaposed with natural elements. This exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.
