Event Details

At a time when the gallery scene has all but shut down, the
Venvi Art Gallery keeps

finding ways to stay in touch with the Tallahassee community
and expand its reach.

Ray Burggraf: The
Early Work
exhibition, open November 6th to January 10th, will continue
this work.

There will not be the usual evening opening but Venvi’s 2901
E. Park

Avenue location will be open for limited hours with masks
and social distancing,

Wednesday through Sunday from 12:30-5:30pm during the
Burggraf show. In addition, there will be a

virtual show to enjoy on the Venvi website (
with a link to a video about the

artist, with his fast-paced video paintings and inspirations
on YouTube.

There will also be video clips about the show on Venvi’s
Facebook page and a brief

discussion about individual paintings on Instagram. At one
point in the artist’s YouTube

video, you are looking out of a car whizzing along a
straight rural San Joaquin Valley road with the 

sounds of traffic in your ears. You can’t help but be
grateful when suddenly the scene changes to his art

studio where a languidly rotating color sculpture calms
things down with the loud noise and

visual rush fading away to silence. In contrast with the car
scene, you have the pleasure of

the quiet and peaceful simplicity of his art. This is the
strength viewers will find in the

geometric abstractions showcased in Ray Burggraf, The Early Work.
