June 28 – August 17, 2024
Imagine a world where earth and plastic lie buried playfully, side-by-side, for a future civilization to ponder. That’s what Eric Manwiller imagined in his exhibit at Art Works. A Richmond-based artist, Manwiller combines painting and sculpture. And recently he has added mixed materials like casts of 1980s action figures, glitter, flip sequins, and various textiles to his work. The results evoke images of “plastic fossils” and explore issues of environmental importance.
The exhibit and experience will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
