Exhibition Dates: February 1, 2019 – March 30, 2019

Transformations: Visual Representations of Changing States was a group exhibition curated by Julie Gautier-Downes featuring works by Richmond Art Collective members: Brian Deemy, Grace June, Hannah Koeske, Ira Gardner, Julie Gautier-Downes, Susan Vander Kooi, and Reinaldo Gil Zambrano. In physics, transformation is defined as the induced or spontaneous change of one element into another. As artists, we transform raw, found materials into resolved art objects. Collectively, we aspire to inspire our viewers to consider new perspectives, realities, and narratives. To do this successfully requires experience with the chosen medium, but also an openness to the possibilities of a blank canvas, found object, chemical process, or seemingly banal moment and the dedication to see it through to completion.
