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.
