Richmond, CA: Summer exhibitions at Richmond Art Center (RAC) bring Nahui Ollin to the main gallery. This large survey of work by esteemed Richmond-based artist Andrés Cisneros-Galindo is accompanied by Printmaking at NIAD, a group show of artists who have worked with Cisneros-Galindo over the past three decades.

In the south gallery Anne Wolf invites reflection on the word “enough” through artistic collaborations in ENOUGH Considered. While in the west gallery a solo exhibition of paintings by David Burke called Solastalgia explores the psychological impact of environmental destruction.

Nahui Ollin: The work of Andrés Cisneros-Galindo

Reception: Saturday, July 15, 12pm-2pm
Print Demo: Saturday, July 29, 2pm-3:30pm

As the first major survey of Andrés Cisneros-Galindo’s work, this exhibition offers an intimate perspective into Cisneros-Galindo’s experiences as a Mexican immigrant, activist, educator and artist grappling with the social and political currents of American life.

From the political posters that helped mobilize the Bay Area’s Chicano community to the abstract expressionist paintings that embody fragments and cultural vestiges of the immigrant identity, this exhibition highlights how Cisneros-Galindo’s practice has always been integrated in contemporary struggles around race, education, the environment, justice and democracy both in the U.S. and in Mexico.

ENOUGH Considered

Reception: Saturday, July 15, 12pm-2pm
Stitch n’ Bitch + Enough Photo Portrait sessions: Saturday, July 22, 11am-3pm
Artist Gallery Walkthrough: Saturday, August 12, 12pm

Anne Wolf’s ENOUGH Considered explores the multiple ways we define and embody ENOUGH. Through a series of artistic collaborations, Wolf invites reflection into our perceptions of wholeness, abundance, boundaries and sufficiency.

The exhibition includes Wolf’s hand stitched alphabet samplers where the word ENOUGH appears buried within the cross-stitched alphabet. A collection of portrait photographs, created with photographer Lisa Levine, convey a personal embodied gesture of ENOUGH. While designer Ana Llorente brings together written pieces from portrait participants with her mural ENOUGH EVERYONE TOGETHER/ !BASTA! TODOS JUNTOS. Letterpress cards created by James Tucker are available to inscribe thoughts, feelings or stories about ENOUGH.

As a participatory project, gallery visitors will find opportunities to contribute to ENOUGH Considered. This includes an event called Stitch n’ Bitch + Enough Photo Portrait Sessions on Saturday, July 22, 11am-3pm, where community members can collectively stitch on a large-scale banner and have their portrait taken.
