Corrugation; Constructivism Revisited by Binford Harrell

Binford Harrell is a winner in the International Society of Experimental Artists 2016 juried competition. He is a VCU alumni and currently resides in Wakefield, Virginia. Harrell assembles and arranges corrugated board that is torn and pealed in some areas to reveal the corrugation and residual paper remaining. Then working with oil colors he creates an emotion and image. This exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.

Cuban Chrome by Joseph Ring

In early January 2016 Joseph Ring traveled to Cuba with a small diverse group that was led by two well-respected National Geographic photographers: Robert Holmes and Christopher Baker. Staying in the small town of Trinidad, in a B&B, Ring photographed the architecture and people of Cuba. This collection of photographs of 1950’s cars depicts a feeling of “time stopped”. The exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery. .

Sandra Nye Moran Recent Works
When Moran says “I have always drawn, doodled painted and worked in the art world,” this is an understatement of her achievements. She is an award wining actress from Cazenovia College, has a BA from NYU School of the Arts, studied at Parson’s School of Design and has a FIT certification in garment design—which are only a few of her accomplishments. Twelve years ago, she reinvented herself by a choice to master watercolor. She has a Modern Impressionist technique with an eye toward modern subject maker. Her exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East

Art will Save the World by Gigi Andresen Brothers

This exhibit is a chronological exhibit of the life and art of Gig Andresen Brothers. Gigi was well loved in in the Richmond art community and especially at Art Works Gallery. She attended and sometimes managed the weekly figure-drawing sessions, entered her work in the 4th Friday All Media juried shows, won awards and even volunteered to paint the door between Plant Zero Café and Art Works which remains a reminder to us of her talent and generosity every day. Her son, Carter Brothers organized and produced this exhibit in honor of Gigi. Starting with some of her early work growing up in New York to her final project done in Church Hill in Richmond, this collection gives us another change to view the strange and complicated world in which we live through Gigi’s eyes. The exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.

Vanishing America Legacy Art by William A. Youngblood

This exhibit is a memorial to William A. Youngblood and his daughter, Judy Youngblood Lane. Judy began planning this exhibit two years ago. When she recently passed away, her husband, Mel Lane, continued the process to produce the show. Bill Youngblood was a visual poet. His timeless paintings awaken musings on life and death in man's natural and material world. Watercolors convey rivers, workboats, fields, wildflowers, trees, and sagging buildings. Bill died in 2009 at age 94 and left a legacy of hundreds of paintings, only a few can be in the exhibit. Bill served in World War II in the Pacific where he was an artilleryman in the Battle of Okinawa. He carried pencil and paper and sketched scenes from this time. Bill was the art director for Southern States in Richmond, Virginia. He was a member of the James River Art league and won numerous awards. The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.

This exhibit is a focal point of all Art Works’ openings. It is a juried show with cash prizes and is open to all artists and all mediums. The juror is Vincenzo Lupinetti . Call for Entries is on November 18th and 19th at Art Works.
