Three works by R. Eric McMaster are the focus of “The Obstruction of Action.”
An opening reception will be held tomorrow night from 5 to 9 p.m.
In this new exhibit, sculptures, video and photography works highlight the sometimes unusual conditions under which athletes participate in sporting events.
McMaster’s works examine social hierarchy, complicity and vulnerability.
McMaster, who lives in Richmond, is the recipient of a 2011-2012 Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship and assistant professor and lab technician in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Sculpture and Extended Media.
He received his bachelor’s of fine arts in sculpture from Pennsylvania State University and a master’s of fine arts in sculpture from Arizona State University.
A talk with the artist will be held Thursday, January 31, at 6:30 p.m.
McMaster’s work will be on display through Friday, Feb. 15.
