Richard Carlyon: A Retrospective - Interval

EXHIBITION DATES: September 11 - October 17, 2009
OPENING RECEPTION: September 11, 2009, 6-9pm AND October 2, 7-10 pm

Article in RVA Magazine: "Multi-Site Exhibition Surveys Artist Richard Carlyon's Influential Career"

1708 Gallery starts the New Year with an retrospective selection of the works of VCU's most distinguished professor of the arts: Richard Carlyon.

This multi-site exhibition examines the artistic career of Richard Carlyon (1930-2006), a pivotal figure in the Richmond arts community. While Carlyon's reputation as an influential and highly regarded teacher is legendary, he also maintained an active studio practice for over five decades, producing an extensive body of paintings, drawings, videos, collages, and constructions. Thematically grouped selections from these extensive holdings, together with loans from private and public collections, offer an overview of his development and wide-ranging perspective.

At 1708 Gallery, curators Brad Birchett and Gregg Carbo have selected works that suggest, in Richard's words "a mediation between polarities" - that space between the subject and ground, between styles and movements, the here and the there -- INTERVAL.
