Jonathan Lee is an artist and librarian living and working in Richmond, Virginia. His studio practice explores ephemeral memory, secret histories and social constructions; often through abstracting activated materials. His social practice utilizes multi-modal approaches to engage individuals, small groups, and communities with ideas through discussion, art making and display.

Lee's work is made predominantly from used, discarded or repurposed materials. Charged by exchanges and interactions of often unknown consequence, these materials have the power to reveal things about our past, present and future, not just because of what they are, but who we are. By altering their original form and function, Lee investigates how information is created, interpreted and renewed through individuals, communities and systems. By engaging in both art making and the research process, he solves problems of his own design while reflecting on problems in the world.

In the studio, Lee is engaged in at least two conversations. One is with himself (What am I feeling and thinking?) The other is with the materials (What are they doing and saying?) Where these dialogs overlap is where the work takes shape; a product of following small details to unexpected places.

Lee's work responds to both the materials and the maker, a collection of personal and communal experiences where patterns and connections are both made and broken. These abstractions offer an alternative apparatus for taking in and questioning information. An opportunity to consider things differently.

Please note that the museum will be open on Saturday, March 9.

The Gee’s Bend Experience

Sponsored by Betty Blessin, Imogene & Isadore Draper, Ben Gravely, Mallory & Richard Joyce, Debra Poirier & George Mehaffey, Jennifer Reis & Pete Mannen, Joan & Monty Montgomery, Madie & Jim Rountree, Gail Vogler, Brenda & Joe Williams and Lynwood Artists

“Some of the most miraculous works of modern art America has produced.” — The New York Times

Known for its bold, improvisational designs and the use of recycled fabrics, Gee’s Bend’s patchwork quilting tradition began in the 19th century and continues today.

These quilts constitute a crucial chapter in the history of American art. The residents of Gee’s Bend, Alabama (also known as Boykin) are direct descendants of the enslaved people who worked the cotton plantation established there in 1816 by Joseph Gee.

After the Civil War, the ancestors of Gee’s Bend’s residents remained on the plantation working as sharecroppers. When cotton prices fell during the Great Depression, the community faced ruin until the Federal Government purchased 10,000 acres of the former plantation and provided loans enabling residents to acquire and farm the land. Unlike the residents of other tenant com­munities, who could be forced by economic circumstances to move — or who were sometimes evicted in retaliation for their efforts to achieve civil rights — the people of Gee’s Bend could retain their land and homes. Cultural traditions like quilt making were nourished by these continuities.

Today, the non-profit organization Sew Gee's Bend Heritage Builders works to promote the quilters of Gee’s Bend and has fostered collaborations with major fashion houses like Greg Lauren, Chloe and Marfa Stance and exhibitions at major museums around the world inculding the Whitney Museum of American Art. Learn more about Sew Gee's Bend Heritage Builders here.

Please note that the museum will be open on Saturday, March 9.

“Living day-in-and-day-out attending to works of art, one begins to tune into the needs of each individual piece like a child who will ask for what he or she needs in order to evolve. ” — Annie Waldrop

Featuring work by award-winning Roanoke-based artist Annie Waldrop, this collection is an outcome of her decades-long quest to use bookmaking, painting, assemblage, collage and other mediums to explore femininity through themes like spirituality, Buddhism, motherhood and creativity. Waldrop's work represents the culmination of a process she likens to tending a garden or raising a child — a labor of love which has its own organic course to follow, including unpredicted detours and clearly defined destinations.

Sponsored by Olivia and Pres Garrett, Charlie Knighton, Blanche and Tom Mahoney, Kim and Jason Spratley, Kerry Y. Tillery and Lynwood Artists

Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society and the Pastel Society of America.

Z.L. Feng finds inspiration for his ethereal watercolor landscapes on his travels and in the verdant countryside of the New River Valley where he lives.

“I find that the trees, rivers, and nature itself are beautiful and have good Feng Shui,” he said. “This means that wind and water are so important to our life and that is why these things are often the centerpieces of my works.”

Feng grew up in Shanghai, China, where he began painting at age seven. Before coming to the U.S. in 1986, he received his BFA from Shanghai Teacher’s University. He completed an MFA at Radford University in 1989 and went on to teach there for more than 30 years.

Feng's watercolors and illustrations have been exhibited in juried shows around the world. An artist-signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society and the Pastel Society of America, Feng has won more than 200 national and international awards and has been recognized at numerous watercolor exhibitions.

Compulsory Measures

12:00AM

Sponsored by Liz and Doug Goldstein, Annette and Paul Huckfeldt, Susan and David Morris, Anne and Eric Smith, Barbara and Guy Stanley and Lynwood Artists

The antidote for an over-stimulated, stupefying and simulated culture... is discovered through the artist’s hand.

In response to a culture saturated with devices that distance, digitize and disembody, the artists in Compulsory Measuresembrace repetition and ritual as mindful strategies to ascertain meaning. 

Bordering on the obsessive, Jorge Benitez, Kristy Deetz, Al Denyer, Joan Elliott, Reni Gower, Steven Pearson, Jennifer Printz and Tanja Softic provide lifelines for “making sense” out of the chaos entrenched in contemporary culture. By utilizing complex systems, intricate patterning, repetitive marking or minute detail, Compulsory Measures offers revelatory and celebratory works slowly crafted by hand.

With social media fictions and rampant consumerism triggering excessive anxiety across most demographics, the artists in Compulsory Measures offer a contemplative slowing down even as they urge acknowledgement of some of the most pressing issues (environmental crisis to global marginalization) facing civilization today. Enticed by touch, the artists counter visual skimming and encourage quiet reflection. As such, the exhibition is a perfect conduit for diffusing unease while generating conversations that embrace cultural awareness through mindfulness.

SUSAN LENZ, Comparing Old Friends to New Ones, altered cross stitch
April 1, 2023 - May 13, 2023  

Once and Again: Alterations

12:00AM

Sponsored by Cindy and Steve Edgerton, Paige and Jay Frith, Tracie Heavner and Jim Frith, Pete Mannen and Jennifer Reis, Barbara and Guy Stanley and Lynwood Artists

Susan Lenz works in partnership with her materials to articulate the accumulated memory inherent in discarded things. By using multiples of seemingly mundane items, she puts into perspective the abundance of life and the capacity to keep things as if for a "rainy day." Paper clips, keys, bottle caps, buttons, nails, plastic spoons and old clock parts are combined with dominoes, film reels, old toys and holiday decorations. These and so many other, often vintage, items are repetitively hand-stitched into meditative patterns on sections of old quilts, bringing an extraordinary new life to otherwise everyday things.

Other altered works address marriage, systemic racism, genealogy, reliance on mechanical appliances and common adages. In each piece, Lenz uses a familiar object in an unexpected way to voice current ideas and social concern.

Lenz's work has appeared in national publications, numerous juried and invitational exhibitions and at fine craft shows including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Craft Shows. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Textile Museum in Washington, DC and the McKissick Museum in South Carolina. Susan has been awarded fully funded fellowships to several art residencies including Great Basin National Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, The Anderson Center, PLAYA, Hot Springs National Park, the Studios of Key West, and Homestead National Monument. She has been featured on art quilting television programs, Columbia Museum of Art’s educational videos, and South Carolina Etv. Her solo shows and installations have been mounted all over the world, including at Mesa Contemporary Museum of Art and as far away as the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England.

LINDA STARR, She Liked to Lay Bets on How Fast the Sunshine Devoured the Rainclouds, acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, 2022

Identity, Stories, Connections

12:00AM

Sponsored by Cindy and Steve Edgerton, Paige and Jay Frith, Tracie Heavner and Jim Frith, Pete Mannen and Jennifer Reis, Barbara and Guy Stanley and Lynwood Artists

Linda Starr is an artist of passion whose work exudes the same colorful and playful energy as her spirit. Her intuitive painting process is an arrival point reached over a multi-decade career as a painter. In Starr's work, nothing is planned or pre-engineered. She applies paint on canvas without conscious thought to the subject, often rotating the canvas in different directions before determining how the images will emerge.

Her paintings are often sculptural, laden with texture and vibrant color, and always full of story. Starr uses shape, patterns and repetition to create whimsical scenes with rich tones and meaning. Much like the way a story provides setting, plot, characters and action to elicit an emotion from the reader, Starr intends to do the same for the viewer with her work.

Whether she is creating icon-like imagery of strong female leaders, like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or a surrealistic cityscapes full of detail, Starr hopes to energize the viewer and to provide them with that same sense of joy that she feels during her spontaneous and free painting process.

A New York City native, Starr spent 10 years in private study with Carla Re’, 15 years in the film industry and 10 years designing window displays. Since relocating to North Carolina in 2007, she co-founded the North Carolina Women’s Art Collective and works to champion opportunities and make space for women artists of her age.

Freeman Vines | Hanging Tree Guitars

12:00AM

Sponsored by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Kappa Delta Omega Chapter Sorority, Sharon and Bob Bushnell, Ashley and Ronnie Fultz, Olivia and Pres Garrett, Harold Jones, Karyna Jones, Susan and John Kellett-Forsyth, Lynwood Artists

To meet Freeman Vines (b. 1942) is to meet America itself. An artist, a luthier, and a spiritual philosopher, Vines’ life is a witness to the truths and contradictions of the American South. He remembers the hidden histories of the eastern North Carolina land on which his family has lived since enslavement. For more than fifty years Vines has transformed materials culled from a forgotten landscape in his relentless pursuit of building a guitar capable of producing a singular tone that has haunted his dreams. From tobacco barns, mule troughs, and radio parts, he has created hand-carved guitars, each instrument seasoned down to the grain by the echoes of its past life.

In 2015, Vines befriended photographer and folklorist, Timothy Duffy (b. 1963) and the two began to document Vines’ guitars and his life story. Soon after, Vines acquired the lumbered boards of the tree on which Oliver Moore was lynched in 1930. Confronting the silences and memories of this dark episode in his local history brought Vines face to face with the toll of racial terror on his own life and work.

In addition to Vines' haunting sculptures, this exhibit also includes a number of tintype photographs by Duffy.

Hanging Tree Guitars is organized by Music Maker Foundation, a non-profit that provides financial grants and assistance to senior and vulnerable artists — those marginalized by age, poverty, race, gender, etc. — because these are the artists least likely to have the resources to share their musical messages with the world. Since 1994, Music Maker has served over 500 musicians whose work spans the entire history of American music.

Rodney Scott "Rupe" Dalton (1965–2022) was a nationally recognized artist from Henry County, Virginia. His paintings depict scenes from the everyday lives of his friends, family and neighbors and speak to the traditions of many Black Southern families.

Often called a renaissance man, Rupe was a barber by trade, a comedian at heart and a born artist who used airbrush to create works with depth and soul. His work elevated airbrush to new heights and his powerful subject matter invites memory to play an intimate role in viewing his work.

A never-before-seen work by Rupe will be unveiled at the opening reception on Jan. 27.

Sponsored by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Kappa Delta Omega Chapter Sorority, Sharon and Bob Bushnell, Ashley and Ronnie Fultz, Olivia and Pres Garrett, Harold Jones, Karyna Jones, Susan and John Kellett-Forsyth, Lynwood Artists.

A Richmond, Virginia native, Robert Wright Forsyth IV (1952–2021) often found himself at odds with society and the world outside the forest cottage he called home. As a link to the world around him, he began photographing the natural world. Forsyth was fascinated with the interplay of light, object and motion. When he began work with Norfolk Southern Railroad, machines took on a larger role in his photography, incorporating a sense of space very different from the wooded home he loved. The natural world and the mechanical world formed a union that he explored until his death.

This exhibition is on loan from the Robert Wright Forsyth Estate and Trust.

Sponsored by Toy and Joe Cobbe, Jo and Don Grayson, Nancy and Henry Moore, Barbara and Andy Parker, Barbara and Guy Stanley, Lynn and Noel Ward and Lynwood Artists

This exhibition of large-scale oil-on-canvas figure paintings by Virginia Derryberry explores contemporary aspects of alchemy, the forerunner of modern science. Many of the paintings are multi-panel pieces that use a Renaissance altarpiece format and question the nature of sequential narrative.

The intent is to suggest multiple interpretations rather than straightforward illustration of a specific narrative. At first glance, it seems that a "real" space is being defined, but in fact, the painted images are constructed from multiple viewpoints and lighting systems. Passages of volumetric rendering set next to more abstract, painterly areas result in the creation of a virtual, shifting world where nothing is quite what it seems.

Derryberry’s work is shown regularly in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, and her paintings have been written about in an extensive list of publications including, New American Paintings magazine and Oxford American magazine. She has received such awards as Outstanding Artistic Achievement from the Southeastern College Art Association; Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome; Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award and the Feldman Professor Award for scholarship from UNC-Asheville; and the Annual Artist Fellowship from the Southeastern College Art Association.

Continuity (Color + Texture)

12:00AM

Sponsored by Toy and Joe Cobbe, Jo and Don Grayson, Nancy and Henry Moore, Barbara and Andy Parker, Barbara and Guy Stanley, Lynn and Noel Ward and Lynwood Artists

Davis Choun is a Raleigh-based artist working in sculpture and digital media. His work is born out of an attraction to discarded or everyday materials, most notably clothespins. After disassembling the clothespins, the wood pieces are then burned, dyed, and/or stained. Using those pieces, he composes a pattern to affix to a panel, allowing the clothespins to interact and layer on one another. His processes of manipulation heavily rely on improvisation and continuity.

Choun was born and raised in Rutherford County in western North Carolina and graduated from the School of Design at NC State University. His work has been supported by various galleries around North Carolina, including Artspace in downtown Raleigh, where he was awarded an Emerging Artist Residency.

In celebration of the 85th anniversary of the completion of the Appalachian Trail, this exhibition is a pictorial guide of the natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains collected on photographer Bill Booz's thru-hike of the entire 2,160-mile-long trail. This seven-month odyssey took Booz through 14 states and an estimated five million steps to complete.

A landscape photographer who travels the world to capture images of its most beautiful natural places, Booz's photographs transport viewers into some of nature's finest scenes — from delicate details of flowers in the spring to the majesty of the mountains in fall.

On his travels, Booz has visited all 50 states, and far-flung locales like China, Australia and Africa. He has SCUBA dived on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa and hiked on the Great Wall of China. Adventures like tracking Silverback gorillas in Rwanda, swimming with sharks in Central America and monkey’s jumping into his arms in China have all contributed to his amazing experiences.
