Using inspired combinations of paper, paints, recycled items, paper montage and cuttings, members of the Virginia Collage Society are unleashing their creativity at Uptown Gallery. Their exhibit, “Cut and Paste”, destroys traditional boundaries found in painting, drawing and printmaking. This elite group of Richmond artists creates works that range from paper cut-outs to painted, layered papers to found objects in combination with inks, watercolors, acrylics or oils, using paper, plastic or canvas as a support. Affiliated with the National Collage Society, the Virginia Collage Society was founded by Richmond artist Dare Boles in 2003. The exhibit runs from April 2 - May 31.
Exhibit will be in the ELM Gallery through May 31st.

MAIN GALLERY & FRABLE GALLERY
Ongoing Exhibit "A Sense of Place & People"
In the Main Gallery, featured artists Arline Murphy and Anne Via continue their exhibit “A Sense of Place & People”. Mrs. Via’s painterly oil landscapes are mostly of Virginia scenes, ranging from the shore to the mountains, while Ms. Murphy’s impressionistic watermedia paintings are all about the figure. Her impressionistic style and her often experimental technique make her people all the more universal, and universally appealing. Guest artist Bonnie Shelor’s abstract experiments on yupo paper add impressive variety, along with the works of the nearly twenty other artists exhibiting. Exhibit will be in the Main Gallery through April 26th.
