Petersburg’s Walton Gallery will present two new shows this month, one of which will be held in Richmond.
“Deep Thoughts,” a group show featuring the work of Alvin Burts, Cianne Fragione, Mark Pehanich and Clayton Singleton, will run Aug. 13 through Sept. 11.
Gallery director Eric Walton says the “Deep Thoughts” art reflects abstract and figurative expressionism designed to make viewers think and expand their minds.
The show is free, with the gallery located in Old Towne Petersburg at 17 N. Sycamore St. Gallery hours at 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, and by appointment.
Another show, by contemporary artists Ronald Walton and Najee Dorsey, will run Aug. 26 through Sept. 18 at ArtSpace, 00 E. 4th St., in Richmond’s Old Manchester area in South Richmond.
An opening reception will be 7 to 10 p.m. Aug. 26.
Mr. Walton is known for his large-scale abstract work, while Mr. Dorsey is known for his nostalgic scenes of African-American life in the South.
The exhibit at ArtSpace will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and by appointment.
