About the Artist
Abstract painter Jim Black is a native of North Carolina who has resided in the Richmond area since the 1980s. He completed his BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2003. He has exhibited his work in local Richmond galleries as well as through internet venues. His work is part of numerous private and corporate collections in Virginia, Florida, Chicago, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and California. He describes his art as an on-going exploration of tension and ambiguity. His paintings consist of multiple layers which emphasize worked surfaces and spontaneous drawing. His intent is for each piece to have a strong visual presence and a ragged eloquence. The work does not contain stories or narratives but rather offers the viewer a possibility of a “poetic experience.”
Live music will be provided by Harris Creekers out of Hampton, VA.
The opening of this exhibit will be on Friday, January 6 from 6pm-8pm. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
