artspace is pleased to present five new exhibitions opening on Friday, February 27, 2015 from 7-10pm and continuing through Sunday, March 22, 2015. The Opening Reception is Free and Open to the Public. A free Gallery Talk will be held with the artists on Sunday, March 22 at 2pm.

Nationally-recognized artist Colleen Phelon Hall presents "Finding La Muse" in our Main Gallery, featuring paintings, photographs and drawings from her time in residence at "La Muse," an artist retreat in Southwestern France. Hall was "immersed in this natural beauty, quiet and calm…" as a means to recharge her artistic motivation. Both a "wanderer and wonderer" with her collection of works, Hall searches for "untold tales" in the visual landscape she encounters. Earning her B.A. in Studio Art at the University of Richmond in 1991, Hall has received public art commissions at Fort Lee, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and VCU Health System. Exhibiting since 1995, Hall’s works are included in collections of entertainment figures such as Beyonce, Jay-Z and Sylvester Stallone. Earning the 2009 "MUSE" Award from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Hall was also a featured speaker at the TEDxRVAWomen talk in 2013.

Elisabeth Flynn-Chapman presents "It's Elementary," 20 photographic images of exterior architecture in our Frable Gallery. Navigating "principles of rhythm, balance and harmony," Flynn-Chapman references both the "complexity and simplicity" of the project, taking architecture and reconstructing it through her lens. Her photographs isolate elements of her subjects, creating surprising and beautiful compositional arrangements. Flynn-Chapman enjoyed a five-decade long career in education, teaching Art and Architectural History and has authored articles on Baroque Architecture, Thomas Sully and The Bible in Western Art. A world traveler, Flynn-Chapman exhibits regionally, maintains a studio in both the Plant Zero Art Building and ArtWorks and is a Member Emeritus of artspace.

Parker S. Galore VIII, Jean-Baptiste Stowell and Steven Warrick present the group exhibition "Undulating Geometry" in our Helena Davis Gallery. The three artists showcase "different interactions with repeated shapes and patterns" with strikingly unique visual styles. Receiving his BFA in Painting &Printmaking in 2002 from VCU, Galore is a founder of RVAMAG and an event organizer with groups such as Vaudeville Galore and the Party Liberation Front. Jean-Baptiste Stowell’s work is "influenced by comic book art, millennium graffiti and the cubist/futurist movements." Exhibiting his artwork nationally, his ability to create also extends to his career as an accomplished musician. Steven Warrick, a graduate of VCU’s Illustration Department, designs and illustrates for burlesque performers in addition to his inventive body of two-dimensional work.

Glenn Suttenfield presents "In the Fog" in our smallspace Gallery. His photographs "illustrate how the presence of fog…can transform otherwise ordinary vistas into dream-like views." The sophisticated and ambiguous images, whose content includes locations from Richmond to New England, leave only "a vague impression of what lies beyond." Suttenfield’s masterful capturing of structural elements is linked to his profession in the architectural field. Working at Glave and Holmes Architecture, he has been Project Architect, Designer and Manager for projects including the Robinson House Rehabilitation at the VMFA, UVA’s Rugby Road Administration Building and multiple projects at Washington &Lee University.

The Suzanne Foley Gallery will feature "On the Edge: Lines and the Divisions We Make to Create Them," mixed media works from Richmond artists.
