Arts of Point Richmond in collaboration with Kaleidoscope Coffee are sponsoring art exhibit featuring artwork by Sharon Goods. Reception, open to the public, is Saturday, March 9, 4-6p. Titled “Mostly Talking Heads”, the exhibit includes images and text. Sharon describes it as “graphic novelesque. Favorite quotes, collected over the years, have landed with images of slightly offbeat characters to depict the humor, angst, absurdity, and vulnerability of the human drama.
Join Master Shipwright Jeff Rutherford at Bridge Storage and ArtSpace on Friday, April 12th at 7pm for a documentary screening followed by a discussion.
Classic steam yacht Cangarda was built in 1901 at the Pusey and Jones Shipyard in Wilmington, Delaware. She is 136 feet long, and weighs 125 tons, the size of a small airliner. Cangarda is one of three remaining Victorian era steam yachts in the world. In 2004, Richmond’s own Jeff Rutherford, Owner of Rutherford’s Boat Shop, teamed up with owner Bob McNeil for a full restoration of this classic yacht, which was documented in the film “Cangarda: The Last American Steam Yacht”, as part of the Ultimate Restorations documentary series. The documentary allows you to watch as the boat is completely rebuilt, and the original machinery restored. Every piece of her interior, deck joinery, funnels, scroll work, skylights, interior joinery, plumbing fixtures, hardware and all seven of her original steam engines has been removed, rebuilt, and reinstalled.
We invite you to join us at 7:00 pm for refreshments in Bridge’s main Gallery. At 7:30 pm we will move into Bridge FilmSpace for a screening of the documentary followed by a Q&A with Jeff Rutherford.

The language of art with regard to 2D work is an amalgamation of line, shape and shadow and their relationship to surface. This physicality is paired with visual clues that speak of the deeper intellectual aspects of the art work. In the case of Perspectives cultural origins are paramount. Both artists are utilizing cultural inconography that speak of influences which have affected the direction of their visual elements.
