Well-known local artist Miguel Carter-Fisher will have an opening for his new show, "Negative Shapes," at the Eric Schindler Gallery on Friday, June 11 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Special guest guitarist Dylan Barrows will perform a new composition written for this exhibition titled "The Warmth of Silences" at 8 p.m.

Carter-Fisher, the son of the late local painter Bill Fisher, studied painting and philosophy at the University of Hartford before attending the New York Academy of Art. Since returning to Richmond, he has taught at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Milk River Arts, Bon Air Juvenile Corrections Center through Art 180, and Virginia Commonwealth University. He is currently an assistant professor and studio arts coordinator at Virginia State University, according to his website bio.

Here is his artist statement on the new show:

What is the shape between memories and the present? Identity and the body? Embraces and resentments? Children and parents? Longing and fear? Intimacy and detachment? Our ancestry and our future?

In drawing, a negative shape is the space between objects. Although it is the contour of a void, perceiving this shape is essential to understanding the relationship between things.

There will be a virtual show on Thursday, June 10 at 7 p.m. on the Eric Schindler Gallery Facebook page, and an open House, Saturday, June 12, from 1 to 5 p.m. The exhibition runs through July 9.
