Chris Shands Art Show

Ruth & Ollie is delighted to annouce its first original art installation and opening reception!

Approximately 50 paintings, created by artist Chris Shands, will be on display in
our spectacular windows. The installation is titled “Outside the Lines” to reflect
the process by which Chris’s paintings are created.

Chris Shands has been painting for 15 years and loves to work with vivid colors
and incorporates gold leaf in many of her abstract designs. Her paintings evoke
energy and passion. Chris has lived in Richmond for the last 30 years and draws
inspiration from growing up and living in Thailand and from her extensive travels
throughout the Far East. Her creative interest was first peaked when she created
and sold fired pottery in the 90’s and she is now expressing herself on canvas.
Chris is married and is a mother of three and is known throughout Richmond for
her personality and style and we are lucky to have Chris as a valued employee at
Ruth & Ollie.

The show will feature both large and small works (some are shown below) and an opening
reception is planned for Thursday April 3, 2014 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm when the pieces
will go on sale.

Chris’s paintings will be featured through the end of April.
