Carrying 100 pounds of gear mounted to his 12-foot kayak, Richmond artist Steve Hedberg set course in September 2017 to paddle the 320 navigable miles of the James River. Hedberg’s mission was to immerse himself within the falls, bends and tides of the James, and to tell the story through his artwork. This fall, the artist will present a series of paintings, photographs, riverbank sketches and a multimedia installation in his sixth solo show here.
For over 25 years Tom Chambers has been telling stories through photomontages. These stunning images, blending the everyday with the fantastic, are inspired largely by travel in places as varied as American west, New England, Mexico, Italy, and Iceland. Chambers uses photomontage to present unspoken stories that illustrate fleeting moments in time and are known for being extremely evocative, eliciting feelings ranging from tranquility to turbulence—and all the points in between.
Both exhibits run November through December 1 at Glavé Kocen Gallery, 1620 West Main Street, Richmond, VA 23220. (804) 358-1990
