The community is encouraged to check out new great artwork — including the ceramic works of Sylvia Fragoso — at the NIAD Art Center from Feb. 5 through Feb. 26.
Admission to view the exhibitions is free.
A free opening reception for Fragoso’s show, “Hold On To Your Structures,” is set for Saturday, Feb. 13, from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the art center at 551 23rd St. in Richmond.
The objects Fragoso creates “seem to be abstract — vibrant colors appear to be broken or sorted into beautiful and strange shapes built of dense clay grids. But they’re not,” according to NIAD Art Center.
The pieces can “often be deciphered as churches or houses,” the center added, as Fragoso explores architecture in her work.
In addition to Fragoso’s work, February exhibits will feature photographs from a recent workshop, recent works by Jean McElvane (crafts, painting, drawing), and works by new artists, or “New Kids On the Block,” including Marta Padron, Julie McDonald and Yuka Kobayashi.
The NIAD Center opens Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m.
