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.
Wednesday through Sunday 12pm-5pm
Memories cling to us like skin. Indelible ink stained in our conscious and sub-conscious forever. Memories are precious and are tragic. Objects are connected to memories; they evoke emotions and become metaphors of another place and time.
Riverviews Artspace welcome two artists for a joint show of classic technique in a contemporary interpretation. Kris Rehring and Simeon Youngmann use ambiguous subjects and environments with subtle palates and grayscale to create intimate art pieces. The result is figural compositions that convey narratives or provoke emotion to suit each of their underlying themes.
Riverviews Artspace is a living, breathing arts community featuring artist studios, creative local businesses, and inspired staff and residents. Why not celebrate ourselves once in a while? The Biennial Community Show is for displaying work done by the folks who live, work and serve Riverviews. Artwork can be any size and media, since we have such a spread of painters, photographers, designers, and more. This is a true showcase for everyone to see that we constantly evolving and growing, and more importantly still creating!
Angus Carter is a painter, filmmaker and photographer from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He received his Bachelor of Arts in photography in 2003. After a brief stint as professional photographer and lab technician, Angus grew disillusioned with the commercial world of photography abandoning the professional world for more artistic endeavors. For his solo show at Riverviews Artspace, Carter will be displaying his paintings, instead of his photography. The general theme of disillusionment and disconnection can be found in Carter’s paintings. Chaotic forms and abstract figures occupy his colorful, tangled compositions that represents all his positive aspirations along with his fears, insecurities and failures.
Now a nation-wide call for entry, the Riverviews Artspace Annual Juried Art Show has been a tradition for 11 years.

We will announce this year’s juror in July when the call for artists launches. On average over 100 artists apply each year.
