“There will be Rainbows,” new paintings and sculptures by Tracey St. Peter will be on view at Eric Schindler Gallery Friday.
In an artist statement to the gallery, St. Peter said the title of her latest work is about surviving loss and tragedy.
“There will be rainbows is a reminder, a wish and a demand,” St. Peter said in her statement. “Seek light, live in the moment and let the worst pass through. Like a flower, the work will bloom in the sunlight. There will be rainbows.”
Born in Detroit, but living in Richmond since 2007, St. Peter’s paintings are created with hot beeswax and color pigments, known as encaustic painting. Her sculpture work is made of papier mache.
The exhibit will be on view through Saturday, May 17.
Eric Schindler Gallery is located at 2305 West Broad Street and can be reached at 804/644-5005. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
