Exhibitions Calendar - 2015

January 5 to February 6

Willie Anne Wright
Civil War Redux: Pinhole Photographs

Civil War Redux: Pinhole PhotographsWright, an artist living and working in Richmond, uses pinhole (lensless) photography to create one of her most interesting series. Her pinhole photographs, which feature the characteristics of her chosen medium and an occasional anachronistic detail, present an evocative view, as portrayed by dedicated re-enactors. Wright's approach is evenhanded.

The images include those of men and women, Caucasian and African-American, Federal and Confederate, famous players and the lesser known.

This exhibit is on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Jo Fleming
A Delicate Balance

A Delicate Balance by Jo FlemingJo Fleming is a longtime resident of Great Falls, Virginia, a community of ancient woodland landscape alongside burgeoning suburban development, near Washington, DC. Ms Fleming spent her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and retains a deep affinity with the natural landscape. She earned a BFA from MICA in Baltimore, Maryland.

Ms. Fleming’s work has been shown regionally in solo and group exhibitions and is held in private as well as commercial collections. Her abstract paintings, giving image to environmental concerns of coal mining and global warming, led her to Exhibit work in the US Embassy in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia and Taipei, Taiwan and on an adventure to the other side of the earth. Sponsored by the US Embassy in Ulaanbaatar and Art in Embassies Artist Exchange Program of the US State Department, Ms. Fleming was able to experience art and culture of a distant nation sharing artistic, environmental and climate concerns.

“For me painting is a way of contemplating the natural world and my relationship to it. I seek out the wild places where unfettered elements of form, pattern and color in the environment are impacted increasingly, by human presence, and development. I incorporate natural materials, printed and mixed media collage into my work.”
