First Friday 2

Work by Eric Kjeseth 

Burczyk takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the everyday world in her work, often presenting it from the viewpoint of a child, according to a news release, while DeLuze is passionate about “the concept of capturing an idea or image from my own point of view,” be it through crafting, drawing, painting or taking a photograph.

Kjeseth also experiments with a wide variety of techniques and styles, including graphic design, illustration and portraiture, though his main medium is acrylic paint, often mixed with pastel chalk and charcoal, according to the news release.

The artists also will lead an informal, round-table conversation about their work during a Pop Up Gallery event set for 2 p.m. Sunday, March 10. (434) 528-9434, www.lynchburgartclub.org.

Riverviews Artspace, 901 Jefferson St.

“Political Discourse,” a group show of artists “whose art speaks out,” will open with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Featured artists George Lorio, Howard Skrill and Jenny Wu use “their differing media to impart their personal views while using these works to create awareness and promote conversation,” according to a news release.

Lorio, who creates 2-D and 3-D pieces that often incorporate everyday objects like toy cars, chess pieces and children’s blocks, has been basing his current work on issues related to class, immigration, gun control and ecology, and Wu’s work is motivated by the 2016 presidential election and current political climate, while Skrill’s pieces in the exhibit are plein air drawings of public statues in and around New York.

The artists will speak about their work at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The exhibit remains up through April 18. (434) 847-7277, www.riverviews.net.
