Current Exhibitions

Homogeneous Bodies

Stephen-Bernard Derek Callender

November 11 – December 10, 2022

Homogeneous Bodies: Nodes is a sculptural investigation of the transmitters and receivers that act as physical markers of the invisible network. Taking a closer look at the infrastructural totems that litter the sky, the work shows reverence to these towers that stand as the bridge to the omnipresent and omniscient, ever present cloud of human invention. With it we find ourselves Intrinsically connected to nearly all of humanity by only a matter of milliseconds. Intertwined, we find the very fabric of our evolutionary biology collapsing in upon itself, as our society continues to compress under a wave of our technological expansion.

Past Exhibitions

Chance / Intention

The Art Gallery at Brightpoint is pleased to present the first solo show from student artist, Josh Cloninger. Initially interested in photography, Cloninger’s recent exploration of materials and process has led him to non-objectivism in watercolor. Each work documents the outcome of Cloninger’s experimentation with media and reveals the choices that he made in the work’s production. Cloninger lives in Powhatan, VA.

Artwork by Anne Savedge

January 24-February 28, 2020
Opening Reception: January 24

For a number of years, Savedge has been photographing people involved in dance and other movement through space. Her fascination with capturing movement began with belly dancers and now includes ethnic dancers, modern dancers, ballroom dancers, acrobats, and twirling monks. Savedge uses in-camera techniques and digital processing to capture the energy and excitement of a performance in images. 

Then and Now

Artwork by Diana Detamore and Laurie Carnohan

October 25-December 13, 2019
Opening Reception: October 25

Diana Detamore has taught in the Visual Arts program at Brightpoint for nearly twenty years; during this time Laurie Carnohan was one of her students. After Laurie graduated, they maintained their friendship, encouraging and inspiring one another’s creative pursuits. Both artists use mixed media to create richly layered images, which move between abstraction and representation. Their work shares several common themes and sources of inspiration: the mysteries of nature, the transcendence of time, and the inherent beauty discovered in obscure and fleeting moments.
