Alternate Worlds

FAB Gallery, 1000 West Broad Street, Richmond

February 26 – March 9

Opening Tuesday,February 26th from 5-7pm in the FAB gallery, Alternate Worlds is an exhibition featuring the works of Craft/Material Studies graduate students Sarah Briland, Abram Deslauriers, Brian Fleetwood, Shauna Kirkland, and Rena Wood.

Our ideas surface as bright glints riding a wave and are quickly carried away by the flow of time. Fleeting thoughts and imaginings morph and disappear even as we catch sight of them. Can we weight them, map them, capture them for an instant? Can our ephemeral experiences be made manifest in a drawing, modeled in space, or revealed in an image? The work of Sarah Briland, Abram Deslauriers, Brian Fleetwood, Shauna Kirkland, and Rena Wood mines the expanded possibilities of alternate realities and seeks the externalization of internal worlds.
