East Bay Express, SFArts, and more: Making Our Mark in the News
Our much anticipated Fall exhibition Making Our Mark fills three galleries with extraordinary art. And the press has noticed as well.
The show has made the East Bay Express’ list of Top Gallery and Museum shows: http://www.eastbayexpress.com/oakland/top-gallery-and-museum-shows/Content?oid=4955774 and the Richmond Standard showcases the unique relationship between two of our featured artists, Enrique Chagoya and Yvette Deas: http://richmondstandard.com/2016/08/richmond-art-center-80th-anniversary-major-exhibition-to-make-a/
SFArts.org had a wonderful endorsement. This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Making Our Mark:
“Making Our Mark and Marking New Paths were organized in celebration of the Richmond Art Center’s 80th anniversary this year. It represents an artists list for the ages to celebrate one of the Bay Area’s longest running alternative nonprofit art spaces and features some 28 participants including Squeak Carnwath, Enrique Chagoya, Mildred Howard, Hung Liu, James Melchert, Richard Misrach.”
Several events planned in conjunction with this exhibition are on the calendar, including two series of artists’ talks (Squeak Carnwath, Hung Liu, Dru Anderson, Michael Hall, and Christopher Brown, Enrique Chagoya, Megan Atherton, Yvette Deas), and a live and video performance with Sofia Cordova. Our Opening Reception takes place on Saturday, September 10 from 5-7 to kick off this very exciting season for the Richmond Art Center.
The Art Center also has a very special partnership this season with the Del Sol String Quartet, who returns to our galleries for three events pairing art and music with workshops for local students. The residency by the Del Sol String Quartet, organized in partnership with the Richmond Art Center, has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America through its Residency Endowment Fund.
