Jorge Ariel Escobar: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going

Mixed-media photography work by Jorge Ariel Escobar will be exhibited in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.

"Jorge Ariel Escobar (b. 1994) is a photomedia and interdisciplinary artist currently based in Richmond, VA. He holds a BFA in studio art with a photography emphasis from James Madison University. As an undergraduate student, he received a CVPA Research Grant and participated in a photography studio in Prague. His work explores the internal dialogues that we have with ourselves, which includes our emotions, thoughts, and memories. As an interdisciplinary artist, Escobar works with analog photography, 19th-century alternative processes, fibers, and printmaking. His use of photographic imagery is a means to visualize his own thoughts or visions that run through his mind and allow him to better understand himself and the human condition.


Common Threads - by Matt Torrenzano

Matt Torrenzano has traveled extensively. He has artistically captured cities, landscapes, flowers, people and architecture. His exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.

"It’s easy to forget how similar we really are. Our body language tells a story that is easily interpreted and transcends spoken language. These candid shots, caught in the moment across the globe, remind me that we’re all here together, experiencing similar emotions and sharing common threads."

Recent Work by Doug Turner

Doug Turner travels the United States and photographs breath-taking landscapes. His award wining photography from Banff Canadian National Park and Olympic National Park will be exhibited in the Skylight Gallery.

Water Elements - Patsy Ledbetter

Water Elements is about the power of water; how it affects our senses and envelopes us with its life. From a simple abstract of water droplets to the grandeur of the ocean, water is an element of life that feeds the soul. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery East.
