Highlighting works from the LCVA’s permanent collection, Main Street Museum: Virginia Landscapes and Sites considers the commonwealth’s narratives and natural beauty. In combining familiar landmarks in Richmond with the serene Blue Ridge Mountains and the coast, the works invite visitors to delve into the landscapes first hand. Maps and coordinates will be provided of the landscapes so that visitors can see for themselves what the site looks like and compare it to the artist’s representation.

Jill Krutick: Nature Reimagined is an exploration of time, scale, and self-discovery. At once abstract and representational, Krutick’s art is also a joyful reflection of color, form, and memory. Pulling from individual challenges and her triumphs, Krutick re-images the natural world into personal and inviting compositions filled with texture and emotive gestures. Through the pieces on view in the LCVA’s Sully Gallery one can see how the artist skillfully intersects the earth, sea, sky, flora, and fauna with paint, canvas, and a brush.
