The Craddock-Terry Gallery The Craddock-Terry Gallery exhibits bold new work by emerging artists, focusing on large-scale and/ or complex installations that are impossible to realize in conventional spaces. Our gallery with 2,600 square feet of open, flexible space in a historic industrial warehouse has proven both inspiring and empowering to artists. The Annual Juried Art Show features distinct and creative works, produced by artists throughout Virginia. The Juror: Leah Stoddard Riverviews Artspace Opened in 2003, Riverviews Art space is a nonprofit arts organization presenting exhibitions, public programs, workshops and classes.

Riverviews encourages the dynamic interchange between making and presenting art, between visual, literary and media arts, and between our historic warehouse and tenants, workers, and patrons who again inhabit it.

PETER ALLEN Braille Acrylic, Collage, Pencil
My current work is a culmination of a decades-long project involving a series of images and poems that give voice to a personal horror story, which is also a universal story of psychic pain and the possibility of redemption. The condition that creates suffering stems from a faulty notion of reality where identity and misperception co create one another, producing a karmic wheel that perpetuated itself life time after lifetime. My process involves exploring language and narrative and how these elements might work together with images pulled form various media sources. I use found images because they are already culturally imbedded, so preloaded and visual ciphers. I create the text and imagery to have equal compositional weight and to embody the dichotomies of meaning that run through all my work. The text is comprised of my original poetry: then like a letterpress, individual characters are laid out on a grid, but unlike conventional letter press that poems have new orientations in which the observer must, like with encrypted messages, effort to read the text. Thus the letters are both mechanical and hand made, both modern and hieroglyph-like. I live in Charlottesville and am a renting member of McGuffey Art Center.

KIM GOLDSTEIN BOGGS The Extent of Pleiades Vintage, found color (mixed media) I’ve always been a treasure hunter. I’m drawn to beautiful bits of broken - artifacts in various states of disrepair and decomposition. The colors you see in my assemblages were contrived lifetimes before me. Fragments of vintage toys, timeworn furniture, ancient tools…countless well-loved objects. I get lost in their imagined stories. And found.

JANE SKAFTE Flying Machine Watercolor, Gouache, Collage I am a Charlottesville, VA artist and designer. I received MFA/MA from Syracuse University and BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My early career in textile design inspired a life-long fascination with nonrepresentational pattern. I have always been motivated to create art in which the primary expression is in the movement of the eye as it follows the rhythm of a geometric pattern. I taught art and design at the college level, including James Madison University, for over 10 years. I maintain a vital career in graphic design and consulting while pursuing fine art and teaching. I work as an exhibiting artist and as a member of McGuffey Art Center in downtown Charlottesville.
NANCY STARK On the Side Track Watermedia on gessoed paper Strong sunlight and cast shadows are often the inspiration for my artwork. My paintings are a response to the pattern, shape, texture and line observed in the world around me. In composing my subject I zoom in for a close-up view. And whether rendering trains, chairs or flowers I leave out as much or more of the subject as I paint. The viewer is invited to enjoy the artwork and fill in the missing pieces.
