"New Relics for Old Acrimony" at 1212 Gallery 

Friday, Jan. 24 through Feb. 28.

Spencer L. Turner envisions the past, present and future as one. As shown by his show, “New Relics for Old Acrimony,” Turner layers images of Byrd Park’s history to create a futuristic montage of the Richmond neighborhood. The end result of re-contextualized digital topography is like viewing a collective dream through the prism of social media photo apps. Turner put the show together as a community-building art project, with one of the pieces, “#sawOfeve,” as a collaborative work featuring various artists’ photos in a large piece. The show opens at the 1212 Gallery on Friday, Jan. 24, from 6-10 p.m., and will feature a performance by comedian and musician Herschel Stratego. The exhibit will be available for viewing till Feb. 28. 1212richmond.com.
