Artist Talk: Yo Bruce: Gerald Donato + Bruce Wilhelm

  • 1708 Gallery 319 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23220 United States (map)

Join 1708 Gallery for a talk with artist and exhibition curator, Bruce Wilhelm. Yo Bruce features drawings, sketches, and works on paper by Gerald Donato, one of 1708’s founding artists. This exhibition glimpses the irreverence, humor and pathos, as well as the iconography, for which Donato was known. The roguish characteristics present in these works are reminiscent of the defiant spirit that inspired these artists to form 1708 Gallery.  Also featuring works by Wilhelm, one of Donato’s cherished students, Yo Bruce also celebrates the relationships between teacher and student and highlights the significant role that arts educators and mentors have played across 1708’s history.
