Rudy Shepherd at 1708
We Are All Trayvon Martin
“We Are All Trayvon Martin”, an exhibit of works by Rudy Shepherd on display at 1708 Gallery, considers the role of the artist as witness to contemporary society. Rudy Shepherd’s paintings and drawings investigate current events: deceased pop culture icons, politicians, and both criminals and victims of crime. By presenting these portraits, including the artist’s self-portrait, with no visual distinctions, space is created for humanity to be recognized in people otherwise reduced to media headlines. This equalized rendering underscores the complexity of people and their stories; and the grey areas between innocence and guilt, or public and private.
Through March 24 at 1708 Gallery, 319 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23220. Tues-Fri, 11-5; Sat, 11-4. (804) 643-1708
