Trish Tillman

Remains (to be seen)
March 30 – June 3, 2018

Trish Tillman will be a resident in the Quirk/VisArts residency program in January 2018 and will use the time and access to the studios at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond to develop a body of new works for her subsequent exhibition in the True F. Luck gallery. Using a combination of found and constructed elements, Tillman creates free-standing and wall-mounted sculptures that both reference and subvert functional objects.
