5 new exhibits are on display through May 22nd, 2016. Scroll down for details on the exhibits!


So the Story Goes by Jessica Sims

"So The Story Goes" is a collection of abstract paintings that are celebratory remembrances of my youth. The acrylic paintings on panel reference pallets from childhood memories and sentimentalized items of my youth, re-imagined with a new visual vocabulary. The works are poured, painted and glossed, creating encrusted, candied surfaces. This selection of works includes paintings that reference family anecdotes, favorite albums, wrestling, food items and toys from youth.

This exhibit will be in the All-Media Gallery.

Places I've Been by Jill Ward

Jill Ward is an artist and teacher. She received her BFA from VCU and teaching certification from University of Richmond. This exhibit is a collection of work from the past two years. The main concept behind this series of work is the balancing act between what we think and what we say. Each piece speaks of a specific emotion or reaction to circumstance that we all feel, but may not share. It includes paintings, drawings and collage.
This exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.
