Fall exhibitions at Richmond Art Center an eclectic bounty

By Zach Chouteau

For our next ‘Rich Life’ segment, we dropped by the Richmond Art Center (RAC) on Tuesday to peruse their brand-new fall exhibits and discovered a trio of diverse and dynamic displays at the 2540 Barrett Avenue venue.

Having kicked off with a reception on Saturday, Sept. 9 and opened to the public on Sept. 12, the freshly unveiled exhibitions will be on free display through Nov. 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.

The most substantial of the exhibits is Earth, Wind and Fire, in the Main and West Galleries, focusing on environmental concerns and featuring a number of different mediums. The South Gallery is showing off Joan Brown: In Living Color, with paintings and drawings from the artist’s personal estate—many of which have never been publicly showcased.

And in the Community Gallery, scale models, heartfelt videos and photographs help celebrate the 10th anniversary of a local treasure in the display Pogo Park: A New Model for Community Transformation.
