Through September 21, 2014

artspace is pleased to present three new exhibitions opening on Friday, August 22, 2014 from 7-10pm and continuing through Sunday, September 21, 2014. The Opening Reception is Free and Open to the Public. A free Gallery Talk will be held with the artists on Sunday, September 21 at 2pm.

Monstrous Optimism, to be held in our Main, Frable and Davis Galleries, is a fundraiser in memory of Kerry Talbott, a much admired and loved Richmond illustrator, comic book artist and educator. Talbott lost his battle against cancer last October and his family has been burdened with medical bills since his passing. More than 60 of Richmond's best artists and illustrators have created and are donating work specifically for this show to fundraise for Talbott’s family.

The content of the work will pay homage to the type of work Kerry loved so much and did so well: robots, giant monsters, super heroes, aliens and otherworldly fantastic creatures. There will be some original art available for purchase; however, the majority of the work will be affordable, high quality prints.

Exhibition participants are gallery artists, professional illustrators and comic book artists, some of whom were cultivated under Kerry's guidance as his students, and fellow colleagues from VCU's Communication Design Department. A partial list of the contributing artists: Stephen Bissette, Sishirprithvi Bommakanti, Melissa Duffy, Josh George, Patrick Godfrey, Nicole Hamilton, Sterling Hundley, Cathryn Hutton, Bizhan Kohdabandeh, Jeff Love, Robert Meganck, Eric Pfeiffer, Richie Pope, Tin Salamunic, Jamie Tarantino, Chris Visions, Sally Vitsky, Jeremy Wilson and Shawn Yu.

Please save the date for a night of fun, friends, and fantastic art created with love and community.

Local educator Brigette Newberry presents her quilted works in "Trees in an Urban Landscape" in our smallspace gallery. Taking disparate patterns, Newberry stacks, sheds, stitches and layers fabrics to create vibrant landscapes. Both painterly and tactile, Newberry’s method addresses craft as art and the idea of translating pictorial imagery into three dimensions.

The Suzanne Foley Gallery will feature "For the Record: Acts and Actions Captured" an exhibition of mixed media works from Richmond artists.
