Seeing Urban Nature

Meet Teaching Artist Julia Beery

Julia Beery spoke with us about her new class Urban Nature Journaling (https://www.hisawyer.com/the-richmond-art-center/schedules/activity-set/260599) . She says, “Students who take this class will start to see that you don’t need to be a scientist to understand the natural world, anybody’s observations are valid.”

In Memoriam

❤️ Remembering Lynn Sullivan

Lynn passed on October 10 after a swift battle with cancer. A talented and prolific textile artist, Lynn was a kind and welcoming member of Richmond Art Center’s weaving community. Her quiet cheer and giving spirit will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Her friends are planning an exhibition of her past 15 years of work (date TBD).
