Richard Carlyon

A Network of Possibilities

January 19 – March 9, 2018

Opening Reception
Friday, January 19

Curated by Ashley Kistler

Reynolds Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings, drawings, collages, and videos by Richard Carlyon (1930-2006), opening on Friday evening, January 19, from 7–9 pm. A pivotal figure in the Richmond arts community whose reputation as an influential teacher is legendary, Carlyon maintained an active and diverse studio practice for over five decades. A Network of Possibilities, curated by Ashley Kistler, offers the first in-depth look at the artist’s work since his retrospective nearly a decade ago. It includes a number of pieces on public view for the first time, as well as other works that haven’t been seen in well over a generation.

Other events in conjunction with the exhibition include a panel discussion with Ashley Kistler, Scott Nolley, Howard Risatti, and Paul Ryan on January 25 at 6pm. On February 8 from 5:30 – 7:30, the VCU Libraries will host a program and art show exploring their recent acquisition of Carlyon’s papers and digital works. See more information here.
