Video by Gerry Alferio
On exhibit at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen until July 10th, 2022.
This collection of fiber art by Kalia L.H. Calhoun represents her exploration of both spherical and flat fiber surfaces. Her work explores what defines traditionally expected forms and pushes the boundaries while still maintaining the uniqueness of form. Drawing from eclectic sources of inspiration, she strives to reflect the beauty and wonder in the world around us, from conceptual and imaginary to realism.

Blue is the color of trust, responsibility, and relaxation. Depending on the tone, blue represents loyalty or authority. Within blue’s emotional range is the capacity to evoke calm and serene. Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association members use blue to call forth these emotions.
Art is often seen as an introverted, solitary experience involving serious thought and messages. Frequently overlooked are the examples of the lighter side of human existence – comedy. Art, like life, is a balance between comedy and tragedy. Richard Nickel’s work is intent on revealing the purpose of humor in art and to show that art, comedy, and tragedy are dependent on each other for a deeper understanding of the human condition.
