Radiating from Richmond

Martin Bromirski mentioned on his blog anaba that he was in a show, radius250, in Richmond, VA. The show’s conceit is art produced within a 250-mile radius of Richmond. Who knew that Richmond is the hub of an art world radiating in all directions? It’s a great idea for organizing a show and we’d like to see radiating art exhibits elsewhere. When we looked at the website — which is very good and has a nice color image for each artist represented — we saw that Philadelphia art is big in the show. And in fact, we found lots of Philadelphia or Pennsylvania artists who are who are also in Artblog‘s radiant orbit. We’ve written about many of them. The show’s juried by John Ravenal, former curator of contemporary art at the PMA, now Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
