February: Richmond Pop-Up Exhibit Boundaries and Edges
BOJUart gallery is pleased to announce our Richmond pop-up exhibition Boundaries and Edges. On display February 1-27, 2020.
The exhibition showcases recent work from many artists, with a special emphasis on painter Dathan Kane, photographer Bob Petersen and mixed media artist Cameron Wilson Ritcher. The exhibit focuses on everyday subjects translated by the artists in their own style and medium.
Dathan Kane paints solely with black and white organic shapes to reflect the daily choices we make, whether conventional or unconventional. Cameron Wilson Ritcher’s mixed media work focuses on finding new and innovative ways to use everyday and often discarded utilitarian objects. He thinks of his work as purely a celebration of the materials themselves. Bob Petersen’s photography borrows images from our familiar natural world, resulting in large-scale work that moves between recognition and abstraction.
In addition, other BOJUart gallery roster artists and visiting artists Ajibade Awoyemi, Nico Cathcart, Michael Greenwald, Beth Lindenberger, Kristin Kowalski and Jack Pine expand the exhibit theme through the use of glass, ceramic, painting and mixed media.
Hosted by the Gallery at 17 located at The Mezzo Lofts at 17 W. Broad in the Arts District, Richmond, Virginia. On exhibit February 1-27, 2020. Hours: Monday through Saturday 8:30-5:30PM. First Friday 5:00-9PM.
Shown: Forward, 2019. Dathan Kane. Acrylic on canvas.
Richmond Arts and Culture District
The Richmond Arts and Culture District stretches from the Institute for Contemporary Art on West Broad to the Virginia State Capitol and spans the Monroe Ward and Jackson Ward neighborhoods. The Arts District was designed to be the center of artistic, cultural, civic, and commercial activity. This district has worked to promote economic prosperity in this area of Richmond and create areas for art galleries and artist living spaces. This inclusive district offers a variety of experiences for all visitors and locals. The Arts District features and supports the history of the Jackson Ward neighborhood, the business activity along West Broad Street, the wide range of downtown art galleries, and eclectic dining and shopping experiences.The District is the first of its kind in the city of Richmond but state law allows there to be more than Arts District in each city.
The Arts District is the home of the monthly First Fridays Art Walk. First Fridays are held the first Friday evening of every month, people are able to wander the Arts District and visit the art galleries and shops that are staying open late. The event features street performances, live music, gallery openings and special deals at stores.
