Moods, Wings by Keenan Cross

With degrees from Ball State University (Magna cum Laude) and the University of Richmond (Master of Liberal Arts), Cross demonstrates his mastery of painting, drawing and illustration in his exhibit at Art Works. The exhibit compels the viewer to unravel the mystery and intrigue within each piece. The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery. Learn more about the artist at:

Au Naturale by Diane Balister

Amazed by nature, the artist enjoys painting en plein air - feeling the sun warm on her skin or feeling a soft breeze.  Attempting to paint water so that the viewer can hear the water move over rocks or sand,  or capturing children running and laughing, or animals chasing or barking.  Those things that make one pause and smile.  Often there are figures or animals in her landscapes and street scenes.  The beauty of the human body as it moves and flows is, perhaps, the ultimate beauty. A special tribute to her model Elizabeth who shared her beauty and graceful movements so that she could learn to appreciate true beauty. This Exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery East.

The Art of the Flower by Emma Lou Martin

In this exhibit Emma Lou Martin incorporates painting and college. The subject matter will bring a welcome respite from winter to the gallery. Emma Lou Martin has devoted herself to enriching the art community of Richmond, Virginia with her involvement with the Uptown Gallery, her roles as a museum docent, workshop painting teacher, art consultant, and exhibitor. The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.

Moods and Perceptions by Julie Burleigh

This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.

The Bridge by Minh-Chau Truong

Bridges are always a fascinating subject for Minh-Chau with their forms, heights, locations, materials, history. Through her photographs, paintings and hand built vases, Minh-Chau will share with you her interpretation of some of these works of "functional art" designed by the engineers in the field. This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
