Uptown Gallery’s newest exhibit is all about fancy. Housed in the large ELM Loft gallery and called "Colorful Whites", it is a retrospective of the work of Stuart and Charlie White. Now in their eighth decades, this creative husband-and-wife duo has been enriching the Richmond arts scene for many years. Stuart White, a founding member of Uptown Gallery, is known for the original style and technique of her work. Her paintings, whether landscape, flowers, animals or humans, combine realistic collage elements with colorful oils and acrylics, making her paintings into brilliant jewels; the addition of a sly humor and a whimsical point of view ensure that they continue to delight. These wonderful flights of fancy can be found among many corporate collections. Charlie White, on the other hand, began as a painter but gravitated toward a three-dimensional approach to art, but he has the same sense of whimsy. His very creative sculptural furniture pieces have always been favorite additions at Uptown. They feature unique finishes, original materials and whimsical shapes such as birds or fish. His small metal sculptures are also fun animal and bird shapes, often kinetic. Uptown Gallery is proud to feature these two artists who have had so much influence on the gallery and the local arts scene.
The opening reception will be on August 5th, from 5 to 9 P.M.
These exhibits run from August 3 – October 1, 2016.

Continuing ExhibitsThe visual feast of summer's pleasures, "Summer", by Richmond oil painters Temple Avery & Mark Hierholzer continues in the Main gallery. Ms. Avery's floral paintings, along with Mark Hierholzer's waterside figures, seascapes, & boats, sum up summer's delights. Ms. Avery's subtle colors and soft focus and Mr. Hierholzer's impressionistic use of color complement each other nicely. Another twenty or so artists are also exhibiting in the Main and Frable galleries.
