September 10 – November 14, 2021: A Practice In Gestures
Whether integral to the making of the work or to its narrative function, simple gestures find poetic expression in the embroidery, beading, ceramic and video works comprising A Practice in Gestures. Artists Farheen HaQ, Deborah Koenker, Bev Koski, Mitra Mahmoodi, Bettina Matzkuhn, and Barbara Zeigler explore themes such as Indigenous representation, the role of women in art history, and the experiences of refugees in this group exhibition.

Art Activity: Inspired by Bettina Matzkuhn’s embroidered landscapes, students will be guided through drawing a landscape, including concepts such as horizon lines, scale, and depth.

Dec 3, 2021 – January 2, 2022: ArtRich 2021
The Richmond Arts Coalition is delighted to once again partner with the Richmond Art Gallery for ArtRich 2021, our fourth bi-annual, juried exhibition. The exhibition provides an opportunity for emerging and established artists from Richmond and nearby communities to exhibit together and celebrates local artistic talent.

Art Activity: Inspired by the works in the exhibition, students will be guided through drawing a portrait, including concepts such as proportion, facial structure, and drawing from observation.
