Exhibiting in the Helena Davis and Foyer galleries, local artist
Terrie Powers will present new paintings in her exhibit,
ID-Visible. These colorful images illustrate the inner landscape
of the artist’s personal character. Despite their simple design, each painting
is a vibrant construction of metaphors and symbols signifying the artist’s
mental and emotional journey toward self-understanding. Powers, a member of 1708 gallery, has
been featured in several exhibitions throughout Richmond, VA. She has severed as
a panelist for the Virginia Commission for the Arts grant program and is
currently presiding as resident scenic designer/artist at Theatre IV since
Featured in the Main gallery will be Dreams of King, an
exhibition of recent oil paintings by Russian artist Igor Filippov. Inspired by the mythological mosaics
resulting from the ancient cultural influences existing within the Crimean
Peninsula, Igor Filippov employs mythological semantics to create fascinating,
mysterious images. His most recent paintings illustrate dream-like worlds,
suspended between fantasy and reality.
Filippov earned his MFA in St. Petersburg, Russia and is presently a
professor at Kharkov State Academy of Design and Arts in Ukraine. His work has been exhibited throughout
Russia, Ukraine, and Norway.
Additionally, his work is featured in collections including the Fine Art
Museum of Archangelsk (Russia), Sevastopol Museum of Fine Arts (Ukraine), Boden
Fine Arts Museum (Sweden), and Severodvinsk Municipal Museum of Fine Art
