Drop It (What we did this Summer)

Early one August morning, before the heat of the day, Richmond artists gathered in the parking lot at Art Works and climbed the tower. At the base of the tower, the artists had placed canvases, boards and ordinary objects. In true Jackson Pollock style, they dropped and splattered paint onto the canvases. A model, covered in plastic positioned on a canvas below, was also splattered from above to capture her silhouette on canvas. The results were on display in the Centre Gallery.

All Media Nautical Art Show

This show was juried by Jeffrey Allison from the VMFA. The water theme was a relief from the summer heat.

Members' Show

Resident Artists and Gallery Members exhibited their annual show. Those attending the opening casts their votes for first, second and third place favorites in the People's Choice Awards.
