New Faces 2012, 1708 Gallery’s latest satellite exhibition at Richmond’s historic Linden Row Inn, features artists that are all students or recent graduates of Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of the Arts. Exhibiting artists include Colleen Billing, Hilliary Gabryel, Jennifer Guillen, Elizabeth Guzman, Josie Justice, Michael Muelhaupt, Rachael Starbuck, Mark Strandquist, Breonca Trofort and Egbert Vongmalaithong.
Curated by artist and 1708 Gallery Board Member Amie Oliver, New Faces 2012 features a glimpse of some of the fresh-faced talent enrolled in the BFA program at Virginia Commonwealth University. The media on view varies from photography to drawing, painting to sculpture, video and prints, but each artist’s vision and enthusiasm for concepts, materials and process promises to enlighten.
Join us for the opening reception of New Faces 2012 on Friday, September 7th from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Linden Row Inn.
1708 Gallery organizes exhibitions for Linden Row Inn, a historic inn located at 100 East Franklin Street in downtown Richmond. The artwork is displayed in their lobby, parlor, dining room and courtyard for guests and the general public to enjoy. Part of the mission of our curatorial work for this venue is to show contemporary art that complements and creates a bridge with the historic interior and unique architecture. Linden Row Inn participates in the First Fridays Art Walk with a reception the first Friday of every month from 5 to 9 p.m. Visit their website www.lindenrowinn.com for more information.
