  artspace is pleased to present five new exhibitions opening on Friday, July 25th, 2014 from 7-10pm and continuing through Sunday, August 17th, 2014. The Opening Reception is Free and Open to the Public. A free Gallery Talk will be held with the artists on Sunday, August 17th at 2pm.

Vinnie Gonzalez presents "Exploration," an exhibit of large-scale paintings in our Main Gallery. Gonzalez layers metallic paint in a pointillist method, creating textured, tactile surfaces. This process generates celestial imagery that reinforces his themes of "exploring the possibilities" of the materials and "creat(ing) big." Viewers see the history of the poured applications on the paintings’ surfaces. Gonzalez is based in Richmond, VA and his exhibition is being sponsored by the brand of his medium, Jacquard Products. www.jacquardproducts.com

Lorelle Rau displays a series of intricate collages in her exhibition "A View Reconstructed," in the Frable Gallery. Exhibiting internationally, Rau "collects free resources, reusing and reconfiguring them" as a fully realized collage images. Inspired by the "rawness of the natural world," she leaves no material unused, incorporating the gathered scraps from one work to be material for the next. Receiving her MFA in Arts Administration from Savannah College of Art and Design, Rau’s attention to detail, craftsmanship and presentation are showcased in her vibrant, inventive collages.

Suzanne Guppy exhibits oil paintings in our Helena Davis Gallery in "The Poetic Moment." Taken by the poignant moments experienced in daily life, Guppy works "quickly and energetically" to capture a "quirky and unusual translation of a brief moment in time." Receiving her MFA from Radford University, Guppy has also been a Vermont Studio Center Residency Fellow. Her "small, lyrical" paintings will be hung chronologically around the gallery space, reflecting the order in which they were created.

Showcasing the talents of local youth writers is "Fairy Tale Remix," a collaborative project between the Richmond Young Writers and local artists in our smallspace Gallery. A group of ten youth writers, ages 10-12, took traditional fairytales and re-imagined them into unique personalized stories. Each young writer was paired with a local artist who will provide a visual accompaniment to the piece, in a variety of media.

The Suzanne Foley Gallery will feature "HOT, HOT, HOT: Summer in the City – or not," a playful exhibition of mixed media works from Richmond artists.
