One of a few newcomers to the Richmond art scene, Transmission Gallery turns 7 months old in March with the debut of a new show, "Transmission Introduces Studio 23," running March 7 to 31. A Virginia Commonwealth University sculpture graduate, Bret Payne opened the intimate space at 321 Brook Road to present local and national work that doesn't fit easy categories.
Studio 23, a startup nonprofit artists' collective created by Sarah Watson, Beth Noe, Cindy Eide and Ashley Hawkins and based at Plant Zero, will be part of an exhibit featuring traditional and nontraditional printing methods, etchings, silkscreens and monoprints.
"I'm collaborating with them in creating a show here," Payne says, "in a space where it'll really stand out and show some exceptional work from this area." The show is part of Richmond's participation in the Southern Graphics Council Conference. (For further details on this citywide event, turn the page.)
