Opening Reception, Andrea Donnelly + Studio Two Three Group Show

fb_invite_jan_feb

Quirk Gallery invites you to the opening reception of two brand new exhibits that will each run through February 28.

Based in Richmond and a graduate of VCU with an MFA in Fibers, Andrea Donnelly is known for her breath-taking and delicately woven pieces in addition to the detailed process by which she achieves these beautiful pieces. After the massive success of her 2012 solo exhibition, “Where We Meet” at The Visual Arts Center and her Shop Show, “Cross Pollinations” at Quirk last year, Andrea installs a new collection in the Main Gallery entitled, “The Garden, The Library, and The Labyrinth.”

Earth

We walk on
an unsilvered
mirror,
a crystal surface
without clouds.
If lilies would grow
backwards,
if roses would grow
backwards,
if all those roots
could see the stars
& the dead not close
their eyes,
we would become like swans.

Studio Two Three, Richmond’s only community printmaking workshop, takes over the Shop walls as well as The Vault with an exhibition of work that features prints by artists working at Studio Two Three, Studio Two Three’s Richmond map prints, and a sneak peek at Studio Two Three’s new facility, The Addition, coming April 2015. “We inspire innovation in printmaking by providing studio facilities, education, artist residency, and open doors. We provide 24/7 access to presses, darkroom, digital lab, communal workspace, and individual studios to support production, creative practice, and discourse. We are professionals, amateurs, teachers and students.”

Artists exhibiting include: Chilalay, Ajah Courts, Molly Fair, Guard N Flags, Ashley Hawkins, Richard Harris, The Humble Collective, Mara Hyman, Brooke Inman, and Aijung Kim.
