First Fridays at RVAS
March 1, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The word ‘discourse’ is defined by Meriam Webster as the “formal and orderly and usually extended expression of thought on a subject.” At Riverviews Artspace, we have seen an uptick in contemporary artists extensively expressing their thoughts and reactions through political artwork.
With a predominant link to America’s current social and economic landscape, Riverviews has invited artists, George Lorio, Howard Skrill, and Jenny Wu for the upcoming exhibition, Political Discourse. Each artist uses their differing media to impart their personal views, while using these works to create awareness and promote conversation. Riverviews Artspace is a nonpartisan organization with a mission in presenting contemporary art exhibitions, focusing on contemporary trends, as diverse as our community.
The opening reception for Political Discourse will begin at 5:30p.m. on March 1st as part of First Friday. All three artists have been invited to the reception and should give a brief talk about their work at 6:30p.m. that night. Politcial Discourse will be on view March 1st through April 18th. The Craddock-Terry Gallery is free and open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 12p.m. to 5p.m.
