The Visual Arts Center of Richmond presents “Of Mud & Blood II,” an exhibition that features collaborative works by Central Virginia-based ceramicists and tattoo artists. This exhibition explores these centuries-old crafts through various vessels, sculptures and any other form the work may take. Known for both of their own traditional styles and techniques, the artistic practices of clay and tattooing come together to bridge these two worlds.

Pieces from this exhibition are on auction starting Friday March 15th at 9am through Sunday March 24th 2024 ending at 7:59:59 PM, EST. All proceeds from this auction will be donated between two local Richmond organizations, Mental Health America of Virginia and the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. Please visit ofmudandblood2.givesmart.com to access the auction and visarts.org for more information on the exhibition. The opening reception for ‘Of Mud & Blood’ is on Friday, March 15th at 6pm.
