As the Richmond Art Center celebrates its 80th Anniversary year, the major Fall exhibition pays tribute to its history and its mission. The exhibition, Making Our Mark, looks to artists who have had a history with the Art Center: artists who have exhibited, supported, and enriched the programs over the years. In selecting these artists, we reflect on the scope of interest—media as richly varied as painting, ceramics, fiber, sculpture, and photography—and themes as diverse as the cultural backgrounds at the foundation of the community.
In conjunction with the exhibition Making Our Mark, the Richmond Art Center has also invited Allan DeSouza, Professor and Chair of the Department of Art Practice, University of California Berkeley, to guest curate an exhibition, Marking New Paths, in the Community Gallery. The exhibition will include nine current MFA candidates presenting new works under the self-directed organization of the student cohort.
