REFLECTIONS: Celebrating 50 years of Creativity at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond
November 1, 2013 – January 2014
Founded in 1963, the Visual Arts Center of Richmond celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013. In honor of this important milestone, we have installed a monumental, living portrait of our community art center. Led by master printmaker Bill Fick, a team of volunteer artists worked for five months to create a 2,500-square-foot screen-printed collage of the people, places, key moments, and artist’s materials that have shaped our 50-year history. Layered and colorful, the installation includes thousands of images that connect our founding days in Church Hill to our current community at 1812 West Main Street.
Reflections will continue to evolve throughout the run of the exhibition, as 50 new prints are added to the walls each week through a unique vertical screen printing process. We invite the public to visit, reflect, learn and participate.
We want you to take part!
If you or a fellow family member or friend has a history with the Hand Workshop/ Visual Arts Center of Richmond, please gather your photographs, images, or stories and send them our way. We will make screen prints from scans or jpegs of your entries and include them on the gallery wall collage.
To participate, please send crisp, clear photographs of people (past students of all ages, teachers, advocates, employees), places (buildings, studios), materials (drawings or images of tools, equipment), and artwork (something made at VisArts) as jpegs to firstname.lastname@example.org. When possible, photos should be scanned at a resolution of 300dpi and labeled with a name or descriptive information. We will also accept hard copy images at the front desk during normal business hours.
Please contact Caroline Wright at email@example.com for more information.
