THE CRADDOCK-TERRY GALLERY
The Craddock Terry Gallery houses sophisticated, contemporary exhibits by regional, national and international acclaimed artists working with a variety of mediums. From extravagant blow-up sculptures to abstract painting, multi-media venues to chalk string art, our exhibits are as diverse as we are.
Because the arts play a vital role in stimulating society and developing strong communities, we ensure accessibility to art regardless of socio economic condition. This is why exhibits are always free and open to the public. The Craddock Terry Gallery also hosts artist’s talks, music venues from hip hop to blues, poetry “slams”, dance and many other creative expressions.
Discourse is defined by Merriam Webster as the “formal and orderly and usually extended expression of thought on a subject.” At Riverviews Artspace, we have seen an uptick in contemporary artists expressing their thoughts and reactions through political work. With a predominant link to America’s current social and economic landscape, Riverviews has invited artists, George Lorio, Howard Skrill, and Jenny Wu for the upcoming exhibition, Political Discourse. Each artist uses their differing media to express their views, while using these works to create awareness and conversation. Riverviews Artspace is a nonpartisan organization with a mission in presenting contemporary art exhibitions, focusing on contemporary trends, as diverse as our community.

What does it mean to be invisible? How does the designation of invisibility affect my identity and sense of self? These specific questions also contextualize the title of my current exhibit—The Burden of Invisibility—by addressing the efforts I constantly make to combat a society that has been indoctrinated to view me through a singular, stereotyped lens or to not see me at all.
Riverviews Artspace Cheryl Edwards’ most recent exhibition, The Reverence of Water and Its Relationship with Identity. In this body of work, Edwards showcases various media from silkscreen prints, ink stain canvas, 3D Ndebele Doll, digital drawings and light boxes.

This show has no collective meaning, along with no premeditated meaning for any of the pieces. This show is a years worth of work, that can be as little or as much as you want it to be. Take what you want from it with as little preconceived notions as possible.
