Joey, a rap by Gina Beavers
Here to talk about Joey
Had his picture on my wall, my one and only
It started at school, me pressed up against the bricks
In the summer out back, in the sticks
The city screamed to us from it’s canyons
With its beats and passion and sins
We scrawled our names on its walls
An ancient city—
we moaned our love down its halls
We scratched our names in the sand
And when we fought I scratched lines in his hand
I saved all our memories in my scrapbook
Empty pack of cigs, a ticket stub, all ready for one look
That day it rained, he came round the same way
The clouds crowning down, waiting for our play
Oh, yeah and how we had loved minute to minute
Never lookin up, not thinkin time would tip it

Potential Images in Richmond,VA

Opening April 20 - June 2, 2012


Potential Images surveys current practices in contemporary painting, from the representational to abstract, narrative to conceptual. Curated by Emily Smith, Executive Director of 1708, Potential Images will examine how painting relates to larger trends in contemporary art—for example a pervasive DIY aesthetic, an interest in new media, a reuse of surrealism, an awareness of the neo-baroque and the sublime, and a prevalence of personal narrative.
In addition to surveying different modes of painting, Potential Images will introduce Richmond to a group of mostly up and coming (though some are fairly established) artists. The exhibition will include works by Ivin Ballen, Guy Ben-Ari, Michael DeLucia, Michael Dotson, Brendan Smith and Maria Walker.
