Join us for the opening reception of COLORATURA at 35: A Retrospective Celebrating 35 Years of Paintings on Furniture by Catherine Roseberry and Rob Womack
Exhibition Dates: June 22-August 19
For 35 years two Richmond-area artists been transforming furniture pieces into works of art which have adorned private homes or been displayed in major museums. Now 50 works of Coloratura are gathered for Coloratura at 35: A Retrospective, an exhibition at the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design. Some pieces are among the first ones created by the Coloratura duo.
Coloratura artists Catherine Roseberry and Rob Womack use furniture as canvas and create one-of-a-kind works of art of furniture. Roseberry and Womack both love the fact that each piece they do is totally different. “It’s a new idea every time,” says Roseberry. “There are always new artists to research, new things to think about. It never gets old.”
The exhibition is being arranged in themes with groupings including imaginary urban landscapes created by Womack and themes on motherhood created by Roseberry. You’ll see recent pieces like “Phrenology” and Dinamo’s “The Boy Who Loved Ketchup.” In addition, some pieces like Roseberry’s “Ariacne” have just been released from the studio.
Admission to Coloratura at 35: A Retrospective during normal museum hours is $5 and free to Branch Museum Members. The Branch Museum of Architecture is open Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
Date: Thursday, June 21, 2018 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM
