SPEED: New Ideas / Old Terrain
September 14, 2015 - January 10, 2016
1708 Gallery is pleased to present Speed: New Ideas/Old Terrain, a satellite exhibition at Linden Row Inn through January 10, 2016. Through the works of Remy Bordas, Renate Haimerl Brosch, Leigh Anne Chambers, Peter Eudenbach, Sarah Hand, Fanny Jaquier, Magnolia Laurie and Matt Lively, this exhibition focuses on the concept of literal and metaphorical movement. Using techniques spanning from painting and drawing to intimate and large sculpture, the artists examine vehicles of motion, the conveyance of energy, and concepts of time and transformation to construct a broad interpretation surrounding the word speed.
Amie Oliver, curator of this exhibition, was able to expand this concept further via her connection to the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, where she first saw Magnolia, a Baltimore artist, and Bavarian artists Fanny and Renate's work, where they were Fellows. Peter, a Norfolk artist and Leigh Anne, who works in Courtland, are both connected to Rawls Museum Arts, an affiliate of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Finally, Matt, Sarah and Remy are all part of the Richmond art community that consists of 1708 Gallery, Quirk and the Art Lab at 2216 Hull Street. The world is a big place but art and the love of cycling makes it feel much smaller this season.
A reception for Speed: New Ideas/Old Terrain will be held on Friday, October 2nd from 5 - 9 p.m.
