Threadbare
July 20 – September 1
Opening Reception
Thursday, July 20, 6-8 pm

Tactile yet ephemeral, Eva Rocha’s threaded works present a contemporary yet classical female figure on frayed canvas. She organically and fluidly draws bodies with black thread, heightened in rawness and vulnerability on an unbleached canvas. She unveils the malleability of nakedness, both emotionally and physically, as it can provoke sensuality, empathy, disgust, or rejection.

Rocha was born in Brazil and later moved to America, where she received her Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in Cultural Studies and Arts and her MFA in Kinetic Imaging (2002, 2016) from VCUarts. She has exhibited at the Art Museum of the Americas, Washington, D.C.; Museu Brasileiro de Escultura, Sao Paulo, BR; Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Virginia Beach; 1708’s InLight Exhibition, The Valentine, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, all, Richmond, VA; and in 2017 the Taubman Museum, Roanoke, VA. In 2015, she was awarded the Theresa Pollak Award for Excellence in the Arts and Style Magazine’s “Woman in the Arts,” and recently received a residency at Santa Fe Art Institute (2017-18).

Tautology
July 20 – September 1, 2017
Opening Reception
Thursday, July 20, 6 – 8 pm

In Tautology, Steven Cushner exhibits large acrylic canvases ranging in size from 24 by 30 inches to 6 by 12 feet. The D.C. based artist plays with abstraction and representation in his bold, line-driven work. Overlapping washy layers of acrylic with dark, fluid forms, he creates paintings inspired by nature and everyday imagery, which pulse with an addictive quirkiness.

Cushner was born in Cleveland, OH, later moving to receive his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and MFA from the University of Maryland (1976, 1980).  He currently teaches at George Mason University and previously taught at the Corcoran School of Art, Vermont College, American University. He has exhibited at Cleveland Museum of Art, OH; Queens Museum of Art, NY; Stainar Gallery at Washington and Lee University, Lexington, VA; 1708 Gallery, Richmond, VA; and The Katzen Arts Center at American University, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington Arts Club, and Hemphill Fine Arts, all, Washington, DC. He is the recipient of two Visual Artist Fellowships from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and the Distinguished Alumni award from University of Maryland.

Donato: Fresh will be the first retrospective show of Gerald Donato’s work since his passing in 2010. The exhibition is curated by Paul Monroe,
a retired Richmond physician and extensive art collector who became Donato’s close friend through their art trips to New York, fostering a
similar love for adventure and knowledge. Interested in the subtle transformation in Donato’s early to late work, Monroe distinguishes this
transition by curating one side of the gallery to exhibit more figurative pieces from the 1980s, and the other side to show more abstract work from
the 1990s-early 2000s. The show flaunts Donato’s painted world of funky, character-filled scenes, and his use of unconventional
methods like house paint, door frames, and cut-out canvases.

Donato: Fresh opens with a reception on Friday, April 21 from 7 – 9 pm, and will run until May 26, 2017. The show benefits the VCU School
of the Arts Donato Prize in Sculpture and Painting. A catalogue featuring essays by Paul Monroe, Richard Roth, and Rachel Monroe, will be
published in tandem with the exhibition.

Teto Elsiddique (Painting Fellow)
Time travel is no longer possible

Born in England, growing up in Sudan and Canada, and now living in the United States, Elsiddique explores ideas of culture, identity, and symbolism within common objects. Through a process of layering and removing, he incorporates objects from diverse cultures–“model train tracks, a wedding dress, and various heirlooms“–to create atmospheric, abstracted paintings. Elsiddique graduated with a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and an MFA from Yale School of Art (2013, 2016). He has exhibited at Abrons Art Center, New York, NY; Green Gallery, New Haven, CT; and Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Quebec; among others. He currently lives in Richmond, VA, serving as adjunct faculty in the VCU Painting and Printmaking Department.

Ilana Harris-Babou (Sculpture and Extended Media Fellow)
Tiny House Hunters

Tiny House Hunters presents work inspired by home improvement shows, emphasizing concepts of utility, process, and functionality paralleled between industrial and art niches. Loosely glazed, hand-moldedobjects exist unfinished as Harris-Babou reveals traces of her process— reveling in its creation as  opposed to the finished product. The exhibition will included ceramic sculpture and video work.Harris-Babou earned her BA in Art from Yale University, and MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University School of the Arts (2013, 2016). She has mounted solo and group exhibitions at SculptureCenter, Long Island City, NY; The Jewish Museum, New York, NY; FJORD and Vox Populi Gallery, both Philadelphia, PA. She recently received a Van Lier Artist-in-Residence from the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, where she will be living and working.

The VCU Fountainhead Fellowship is a highly competitive award given to recent MFA graduates who display exemplary talent within their concentration. VCUarts extends one
fellowship per department: Sculpture + Extended Media, Painting + Printmaking, and Craft + Material Studies (two fellowships are given in crafts). The award is jointly sponsored by VCUarts and Fountainhead Development Services. Each recipient is given a studio space, furnished apartment, stipend, teaching opportunities, and an exhibition at Reynolds Gallery.

Conjectures in a Related Field

March 3 – April 14, 2017

Opening Reception
Friday, March 3
7 – 9 pm

Brittany Nelson’s work is rooted in historical photographic elements, including tintypes, which originated in the 19th century
as quick, portable photographs. Reinventing the process through material exploration, she imparts an edgy, modern perspective.
In a series of tintypes ranging in size from 5 x 5 to 30 x 40 inches, Nelson presents the largest formatted tintypes to date–making
her a pioneer in alternative process photography.

Nelson was born in Great Falls, Montana (1984) and currently lives in Richmond, VA, where she teaches photography at VCUarts.
She earned her MFA in Photography at Cranbrook Academy of Art (2011) after receiving her BA at Montana State University (2007).
She is founder of Flatten Image, a professional printing studio based in Richmond.

This will be Nelson’s first solo show at Reynolds Gallery.

Natalie Westbrook collages the world around her into vibrant expressions of acrylic, colored pencil, and cut paper shapes.
Her inspiration stems directly from life observation, living in the wetlands of Connecticut and traveling across Hawaii. Abstract yet
of nature and the body, her paintings and paper works present a bold take on the interconnectedness within environment,
humanity, and the painting process.

Westbrook was born in Louisville, KY (1980), and currently lives in New Haven, CT where she teaches painting and drawing at Yale University.
She received her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University (2010) after receiving a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art (2002)
and MA in Critical and Curatorial Studies from the University of Louisville (2004). She is co-founding editor of Lookie-Lookie, a quarterly art journal.

This will be Westbrook’s second solo show at Reynolds Gallery.

Recent Works

January 13 – February 24, 2017

Opening Reception
Friday, January 13
7 – 9 pm


In Recent Works, artist and author James Prosek exhibits his well-known tea-stained paper pieces
and his most recent oil and acrylic silhouette paintings on panel. A naturalist and world traveler, Prosek
paints animals and foliage in striking reality, often painting his subjects from life. The classic tea-stained
work displays a triage of species, mimicking the format of taxonomic documentation, while also confronting
ideas of classification and re-contextualization. His most recent body of work depicts dark silhouettes of creatures
and plants contrasting a white background, a layout derived from old field guides. In Avian Composition No. 2
(see below), Prosek collages diverse Virginia birds in a painting both systematic and chaotic—unveiling the true
unpredictability of nature, and our constant pursuit to classify it.

The Connecticut native graduated from Yale University in 1997 and currently lives and works in Easton, CT.
Prosek has exhibited at major venues, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA; Smithsonian
American Art Museum, National Academy of Sciences, both, Washington, DC; Philadelphia
Museum of Art, and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York, NY. He has written for the New York Times and National
Geographic Magazine, and has published eleven books, many of which received national recognition. In 2012,
he was awarded the Gold Medal for Distinction in Natural History Art (Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia).

Weather Report

November 4 – December 23

Opening Reception
Friday, November 4
7 – 9 pm

Strolling through Richmond on early morning walks, Sally Bowring draws much of her inspiration from the changing seasons and natural subjects.
In Weather Report, she concentrates on the energy within her strokes, establishing an unpredictability relating to weather and climate. She notes,
“the resulting abstract paintings reference a concern for order, selection and beauty, and read metaphorically; the work alludes to cycles, unpredictability,
things seen and hidden, and the repetition of life.”

Coming from New York, Bowring received her MFA from VCUarts in 1983. She is now a passionate leader in the Richmond arts community, teaching
at VCU in the Painting and Printmaking department, and at the VMFA Studio School, while also serving as a Public Art Commissioner for Richmond.

Weather Report will be Bowring’s sixth solo show at the gallery.

Walking the Subject

November 4 – December 23, 2016

Opening Reception
Friday, November 4
7 – 9 pm

In his large-scale watercolors, Javier Tapia dissects the binaries within life, such as good and evil, intellect and primal, control and detachment. Walking the Subject
explores how these opposites manifest in life; abstract shapes and broad strokes become metaphors for chaos and control, or structure and disorder. Much like
traditional Peruvian weaving, Tapia overlaps, subtracts, and reworks layers of watercolor, creating dynamic compositions which emanate physicality.

The Peruvian-born artist moved to the United States in the early 1980s, receiving his BFA and MFA in painting at the University of Texas at Austin (1984, 1987). He currently
teaches in the Painting and Printmaking Department at VCUarts.

Walking the Subject will be Tapia’s fourth solo show at the gallery.

A New Day

November 4 – December 23, 2016

Opening Reception
Friday, November 4
7 – 9 pm

Exhibiting in the upstairs gallery, Joan Elliott presents recent paintings inspired by Moorish designs seen on her trips to Spain. Expanding on
her previous style, which involved loosely depicted landscapes dictated by color and light theories, Elliott incorporates a geometric flare into her new techniques.
The resulting paintings exist as both delicate and powerful, natural, and densely graphic objects.

Elliott has taught at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for over 25 years, currently living and working in Richmond, VA. She received her BFA in painting
from Virginia Commonwealth University (1978).

Balance Point

September 9 – October 28

Opening Reception
Friday, September 9
7 – 9 pm

The New York-based artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders transforms old slides by scanning and gridding them, and then applying multiple layers of watercolor,
colored pencil, or oil paint. The resulting painting blends photographic and painted elements to reimagine scenes of beach vacations or Nantucket outings. With fuzzy
figures and muddled blues, her painted imagery evokes a nostalgic air that tugs at the viewer’s memory and perception. Balance Point will be Greenfield-Sanders first solo
show at Reynolds Gallery.

Opening reception for the artist

April 11 – May 10, 2014

Will Schneider-White states that he “makes modest, figurative paintings about being a person” (2014).  While this statement belies his sophisticated approach to and modernist aesthetic of figurative painting, his works are indeed modest in scale. His paintings explore the relationship of the human body to space and to other people through a developing mysterious and atmospheric compositions. They are at once beautiful and strange, unsettling and serene.  He received his MFA from the Slade School of Art in London and BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. His works have been exhibited at VOLTA NY and Hamiltonian Gallery in Washington, DC where he also holds a fellowship.  He is currently the Fountainhead Fellow in the Painting + Printmaking Department at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The Fountainhead Fellowship is a highly competitive award given to one recent MFA graduate in the VCUarts departments of Sculpture + Extended Media, Painting + Printmaking, and Craft + Material Studies (two fellowships are given in crafts).  The award is jointly sponsored by VCUarts and Fountainhead Development Services.  Each recipient is given a studio space, furnished apartment, stipend, teaching opportunities, and an exhibition in Richmond.

Courtney McClellan is an artist and writer from Greensboro, North Carolina.  She received her BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008, and her MFA from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2013.   Enacting what has been called “uncreative writing” McClellan creates participatory performances or objects that result in a piece of writing.  Alternately, she often writes works that are effectively scripts for performance art or objects.  These intermedia studies result hybrids: performing objects, objectified text or performative writing.   Her works have been shown nationally.   She is currently the Fountainhead Fellow in the Sculpture + Extended Media Department at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The Fountainhead Fellowship is a highly competitive award given to one recent MFA graduate in the VCUarts departments of Sculpture + Extended Media, Painting + Printmaking, and Craft + Material Studies (two fellowships are given in crafts).  The award is jointly sponsored by VCUarts and Fountainhead Development Services.   Each recipient is given a studio space, furnished apartment, stipend, teaching opportunities, and an exhibition in Richmond.

Opening Receptions: Friday, September 11, 2009, 6 – 9 PM at each venue

This multisite exhibition examines the artistic career of Richard Carlyon (1930- 2006), a pivotal figure in the Richmond Arts Community. While Carlyon’s reputation as an influential and highly regarded teacher is legendary, he also maintained an active studio practice for over five decades, producing an extensive body of paintings, drawings, videos, collages, and constructions. Thematically grouped selections from these extensive holdings, together with loans from private and public collections, offer an overview of his development and wide-ranging perspective.

Gallery Talks: Thursday evenings, 6 pm.

Sept 17: Curator’s Panel, Anderson Gallery
Sept 24: Howard Risatti, Reynolds Gallery
Oct 1: Artists’ Panel, 1708 Gallery
Oct 8: Jason Carlyon & Ray Kass, Visual Arts Center of Richmond

Performance: Move: A Tribute to Richard Carlyon

Saturday, Sept 26, 8 pm
Grace Street Theater

Presented by the VCU Department of Dance & Choreography
