The exhibits continue through September 19, 2020.
Passion Passage by Joe DeIulio
Joe DeIulio is a master painter and writer. He lives in Williamsburg, VA where he paints every day. His work is often of everyday life; his figures seem to be pondering something outside of the current scene. His landscapes are stylized and colorful. The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
Intersection by Sharon Denmark
The abstract works in Intersection are a stylistic departure from Denmark’s previous works, a move away from images representing very real places towards landscapes that combine the real and the imagined, landscapes that are perhaps distorted, interrupted, or strange. The basis for these new works can be interpreted as literal intersections as seen from above, but they are intersections from a world that is slightly unfamiliar. This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
DOG DAYS OF SUMMER
This annual exhibit is an all-media show. Artists have been asked to submit paintings, photography, mixed media and sculpture of their favorite dog, their antics, their loyalty, and whatever is endearing and inspiring about canines.
On opening night, meet Claire Pollard, Executive Director of FURS. She will be bring one of FURS’ adoptable dogs. This juried show benefits FURS (Friends United with Richmond Shelters). This non-profit organization cares for and finds homes for all breeds. Art Works donates all commissions from this exhibit to FURS.
