March 3 – April 20
Wade Comer: Antediluvian

Artist’s Statement
For the past few years, I have been exploring the outer reaches of Richmond. Investigating its past—the time before the flood of development, the flood of people, and it seems, inevitably, the rising tides that may flood out the very areas at the outer edges of Richmond. As a child I would drive around Richmond with my parents, driving past the cranberry fields, along River Road—where the derelict boats, barges, and log booms reside—and out to Steveston to buy salmon fresh from the fishing boats and to walk the dykes. Here I present a collection of photographs that highlight the still remaining rustic aspects of Richmond. As with the city itself, its success lies in the land and the river. Its rich history still survives… on the peripheries. With Antediluvian, I wish to express how that rich past, and contact to nature, still exists.
