Elizabeth King and Barbara Tisserat reviews. Elizabeth's for her show at Kent Gallery in NYC and Barbara for her show here in Richmond at the Hand. I visited that Barbara Tisserat show, at least twice, and am pissed at myself for not ever posting on it. It was excellent.
That happens more than I would like, especially with shows at the Hand. Just realized that the Judith Schaecter and Jack Wax shows have closed, and before that was Carrie Mae Weems. I visited all of these shows more than once, and they were all good!
I know it is not called the Hand Workshop anymore, I just don't like typing out the long and bland not-so-new anymore name - The Visual Arts Center of Richmond. Don't let my strange Hand block keep you away, Ashley Kistler consistently organizes some of the best shows in town.

I wish it wasn't Paul Ryan. One painting department faculty member reviewing another is... not good.
