The Curio Project: A collection of fine art objects, assemblages, and other oddities

Steve Applegate, Frederick Chiriboga, Kelly Johnston, and Keith M. Ramsey collaborate to produce this exhibit which honors Earth Day. These four contemporary artists combine common materials and found objects into intriguing artwork which are vehicles for their artistic messages. Sometimes poignant and alluring, and sometimes bizarre and mystifying, assemblage art reconfigures our conceptions of the world around us and our relationships to objects. This show is curated by Art Works Gallery Directory, Jessie Boyland. It will be a main attraction at Manchester RVA Earth Day Festival. The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery. 


Reassurance and Peace in Nature During Troubled Times by Libby Clark

A professional photographer, Libby Clark exhibits new artwork in the Centre Gallery, East. 


Jeffro's Freaky Funky Fish Show by Jeff “Jeffro” Helm

Although Helm’s artwork hangs on the wall, it is anything but two-dimensional. Using various materials, the reliefs he creates are colorful and often humorous. His exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West. 


Yield by Melanie Kleunder

Melanie Kleudner is a mixed media artist. Her new work will be exhibited in the Corner Gallery.


#RVA by Elizabeth Johnson Phillips

Elizabeth is obsessed with a good story. Stories are essential to humanity—to our ability to learn from the past, to share in another’s experience, to the life of faith, to love.  We are our stories.  And the stories we choose to tell illuminate our next steps. Phillips comes from a writing background and her story-telling has transferred into her paintings. She rarely paints things exactly as they are found but uses whatever colors that will capture what the image “feels like”.  In this body of work, Phillips shows Richmond, VA in its dualities—urban and natural, historical and progressive. Her exhibit will be in the Skylight Gallery.
