ARTISTS' RECEPTION: Saturday October 18, 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.

Main Gallery: Peter Foucault: External Influences
External Influences explores the collaborative process between human and machine through the medium of drawing. Peter Foucault has developed circumstances in which small robots will interact with Bay Area visual, performance, and sound artists, along with the public to create a series of large-scale, abstract drawing compositions.  The majority of the works shown will be created on-site over the course of the exhibition, transforming the gallery into an active project space that will constantly be generating new images, ideas and synchronicities.

South Gallery: The Neighborhood Public Art Project
A community collaboration between the the Richmond Art Center, the Richmond Arts and Culture Commission, and the City of Richmond, with additional support from the San Francisco Foundation.  In an innovative model of community engagement, neighborhood organizations are partnered with professional artists, who work together to develop and produce new temporary or permanent public artworks of their own design. Current projects are taking place in collaboration with the Shields-Reid Community Center, the Laurel Park Neighborhood Council, the Parchester Village Community Center, The Tent City Peace Movement, The Richmond Main Street Initiative, and Familias Unidas.
