Lynchburg native Ryan Crane brings his VIBES pop-up exhibit to our Emerging Artist Series for the month of April!

Friday, April 13th from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Join us for an evening of Art and Music at Riverviews Artspace downtown Lynchburg! A multimedia experience with VIBES album listening and special guest DJs JXN & Tony Day.

Ryan Crane is best known for his modern abstract paintings and vibe infused electronic music. A relentless worker in both the painting and recording studio Crane is a true artist at the core constantly looking for moments of inspiration. A native of Virginia, Ryan has lived up and down the east coast from Georgia to Brooklyn, NY all the while drinking in the intricate details of life and translating these messages into his work. Today, his music focus is in the bass-heavy sound of House and Deep House though his latest Album entitled “VIBES” is a exploration of several electronic music genres. The same exploration has carried over to his visual work, which is represented by a collection of recent paintings sharing the same title as his album, VIBES.

Artist Statement:

Improving ideas, deconstructing misses, fresh starts and looping back to improving ideas drive my work on canvas. The story, and the feeling are my concerns. A vibe, through the use of color, texture, and sheen. Stories evolving through the use of repeating graphic motifs and loose drawings. Working in the round from all sides of the canvas. Most importantly, having fun.
