Ryan Trott’s new exhibition opens at The Bridge Gallery
The Bridge is announcing a new exhibit, âArtist Statement by Ryan Trott,â which will open in the large windows of the Charlottesville Community Art Gallery on Friday at 5:30 pm and run throughout the month.
Trott describes the exhibition as “new small works on art, painting and other things”. These paintings take a look at the art and the universe of the artist’s studio; with mundane scenes and inspired objects depicted in solid color comic book panels.
The work is a playful ode to the everyday artist and to the great painters of the history of art.
Trott is an elementary art educator, illustrator and artist based in Charlottesville. He has exhibited locally at the Welcome Gallery, Quirk Gallery’s Pink Gallery, and Garage, and has created murals for The Tenth Street Warehouses and the Common House social club in Charlottesville and Richmond.
Most recently, his large-scale mural titled “In Bloom” can be seen at the downtown Charlottesville mall.
The public can safely visit the large windows of The Bridge Gallery at 209 Monticello Road at any time of day or night during the month to view the exhibit.
