Chester Artists Association, “I Can Only Imagine”
Chester Artists Association’s art show, “I Can Only Imagine” is based on the conceptual imaginations of the artists. In 2009 the Chester Artists Association was formed as the auxiliary to the Chesterfield Center for the Arts As a professional artist group they mentor and promote the emerging artists in the Richmond community.

Eldridge Bagley, “Southern Exposure”
When Eldridge Bagley began painting in 1973, he didn’t need to search for inspiration. He was already deeply “planted” in and surrounded by the land, the people, and a way of life that have yielded a rich harvest of subject matter. The paintings in this exhibit, such as At the Cannery, The Smell of Rain, and Hair Hut, offer the viewer an intimate and authentic look into a way of life that continues to inspire and is worthy of preserving.
