New Work

November 3 – December 22, 2017

Opening Reception
Friday, November 3
7 – 9 pm

Nancy Blum’s impressive watercolor and colored pencil paintings capture nature’s endless energy. Her large-scale works present elaborate and accurate renditions, yet she composes each piece in an “inaccurate” way—commingling flowers that normally grow apart in nature. She states, “I use botanical motifs to create images that are universally associated with growth and continuity. My deeper intent is to conjure the ‘flower’ as an active, forceful agent, subverting a culturally conditioned point of view that often deems the ephemeral and the organic as less powerful and of limited value. My ‘wonderland’ presents a view of life that pulses with expansive fecundity; hopefully, it also propels comprehension of the connectedness of all beings within the limitless energy operating throughout this world.”

Blum received her MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art (1991) and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. She has exhibited at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, UNC Greensboro, NC; Shore Institute of Contemporary Art, Long Branch, NJ; Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, AZ; The International Print Center, Ricco Maresca Gallery, and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, all, NY. Her work is held in the collections of the World Ceramic Exposition Foundation, Icheon, South Korea; The University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, WA; and the Boise Art Museum; ID, among others. She has executed several public art commissions at venues including the San Francisco General Hospital and New York City’s Dobbs Ferry Station. She has received myriad accolades, including a Pollock‐Krasner Foundation Grant, Peter S. Reed Foundation Grant, Mid‐Atlantic Arts Foundation Creative Fellowship Grant, and a Lower East Side Printshop Fellowship, all, New York, NY.

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.

Please join us for a conversation with one of our current exhibiting artists, Richard Roth.

Congratulations to Sally Bowring on the opening of her exhibition Mixed Greens at the VMFA’s Amuse Restaurant and Claiborne Robertson Room, 200 N Boulevard, Richmond, VA. The show opened July 27, 2015 and will be open through February 15, 2016.

 

VCU Libraries exhibition “Remembering Theresa Pollak” is an excellent resource for anyone looking to learn more about the legendary Richmond artist and educator. Pollak founded the VCU school of the arts in 1928 when she taught the first art class ever at Richmond Professional Institute (now VCU).

Richard Roth’s current exhibition at Reynolds Gallery, Under the Influence: New Paintings and Early Work, has received great recognition from multiple publications!  We are thrilled to share some of that press with you here.

In an interview for Burnaway.org, artist Ridley Howard sat down with Richard Roth to discuss his current show and the arc of his painting career.  The full interview is available on Burnaway.org and an abridged version of the piece was published in the Huffington Post.

We are also proud to share a wonderful review of Under the Influence written by Megan Zalecki and published in the February 13, 2013 issue of Style Weekly.  Megan writes that Roth’s paintings “do more than emulate movements seen in art history…they update and challenge them.”

Finally, we would like to share a review of Richard Roth’s exhibition by David R. White for Richmond Arts Review.  David provides acute commentary on the exhibition and calls Under the Influence a “must see show.”
