“Artist Statement” by Ryan Trott

The Bridge is pleased to announce “Artist Statement” by Ryan Trott, opening Friday, July 2nd at 5:30 PM in the windows of our community art gallery at 209 Monticello Rd.

New small works about art, painting and other things.

These paintings take a look at artmaking and the world of the artist’s studio; with mundane scenes and inspired objects depicted in comic panels of flat color. The work is a playful ode to the everyday artist and the great painters of art history. Ryan Trott is an elementary art educator, illustrator & artist based in Charlottesville, Virginia. He has shown work locally at Welcome Gallery, Quirk Gallery’s Pink Gallery and The Garage and created murals for The Tenth Street Warehouses and Common House social club in Charlottesville and Richmond. Most recently, his large-scale window mural titled “In Bloom” can be seen on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall.
