motHER nature

January 14th - April 10th, 2019

Opening Reception: January 22nd, 2019 6:30-8:30pm

The Broad: 209 N. Foushee Street, Floor 3, Richmond, VA 23220


SDAC is excited to bring you a group exhibition, celebrating the works of local Virginia women artists that showcases art inspired by nature and the changing environment. motHER nature will be on display through April 10th, 2019 at The Broad: 209 N. Foushee Street, Floor 3, Richmond, VA 23220. Hours are by appointment with an opening reception on January 22nd, 2019. A second event will be held March 18th, 2019 to discuss the artists’ works and their inspiration.


motHER nature is a show which both celebrates the beauty of nature and is a cautionary tale of our ever-changing environment. Works in this exhibition are inspired by the delicacies and intricacies of nature, while others bring to light issues such as animal extinction and the evolution of animals for efficiency. It is easy to take for granted the presence of these animals, plants and beautiful seas in our world, but with the visual storytelling of these artists, we can take time to experience nature through her.


Thank you to the below local Virginia women artists for sharing their works with us and highlighting nature in all its beauty.

She’s Abstract

September 10th, 2018 - January 9th, 2019

Opening Reception: September 27th, 6-8pm

The Broad: 209 N. Foushee Street, Floor 3, Richmond, VA 23220



This show comments on the abstraction of women in society while connecting the works of various abstract artists. Abstract works, usually lacking distinct figurative subjects, provide viewers with ample opportunity to explore and define the art in their own minds. Historically, women were viewed with a similar lens, but this no longer works. Women may appear abstract, but can take the reins and explain themselves to the world as they demonstrate how they would like to been seen.

Thank you to the below below Virginia women artists for sharing their works with us and giving us the opportunity to view their pieces through our own perspectives.


Selected Works By:

Acrylic on Wood Panels: Dari Calamari

Oil Paintings: Whitney Knapp Bowditch

Summer Through Her Eyes

June 4th - September 5th, 2018

Private opening Reception: June 21st, 2018 6-8Pm

The Broad: 209 N. Foushee Street, Floor 3, Richmond, VA, 23220

 

With this show we want you to experience the essence of summer: the feeling of a gentle breeze against your warm sun-kissed skin, the sound of the waves in the background and the smell of the salty air. As you move through the rooms in the space, each section encapsulates those feelings in their own unique way. Whether you find yourself at the ocean, a lake, or the James River, go ahead and dip your toe in, the water is fine.

Many thanks to these local Virginia women artists for sharing their works with us and letting us experience this long awaited season through their perspectives.

A woman’s place. Where we were then and where we are today looks very different in many lights. This exhibition reflects upon pastimes but with a modern twist. While once considered a source of entertainment or hobby - these 5 female artists show us how a return to pastimes turned into their livelihood.

Many thanks to these local Virginia women for their revival of great art forms and breathing new and refreshing life into them.
