Mike Richins will be showing his paintings in the South Gallery. Opening reception Friday, August 10, in the South Gallery. Opening Reception 6-9 PM. Free and open to the public.
“Intimacies – Recent Paintings” is a body of work that contemplates in still reflection my relationship to family. At the heart of the exhibition is a series of images of my wife, Mandy, which are based on photographs and drawings spanning the past fifteen years of our relationship. As a meditation on marriage, the tone of the paintings ranges from serious to playful, spontaneous to sensual. Complexity, mystery and beauty are found in the investigation of that which is near and familiar.
