Richmond Confidential: Making Our Mark
Thanks to Richmond Confidential for profiling our new exhibition, Making Our Mark: http://richmondconfidential.org/2016/09/15/exhibit-showcases-rac-mentor-mentee-artist-legacy/
From the article: “The Richmond Art Center celebrated its 80th anniversary last Saturday with the opening of “Making Our Mark and Making New Paths,” an exhibit that builds a family tree of artists and their mentees. The show includes work by 14 artists who jumpstarted their careers by showing work at RAC, alongside pieces by younger artists they have mentored and believed in.
“Making Our Mark and Making New Paths” was inspired by RAC’s mission, which is to give voice to new artists and open the galleries to new visions, said curator Jan Wurm. The idea behind the show was to “reflect the Richmond Art Center as a place where young artists could both show their work and find support as they grow into the different phases of their artistic, creative lives,” she said.”
Making Our Mark and Marking New Paths are on view in our galleries Tuesdays through Saturdays, free of charge. We invite you to visit this inspiring and important collection soon.
