Dear Friends,

I’m thrilled to announce my upcoming exhibition, Leah Raintree: Timekeepers, opening at Reynolds Gallery in Richmond, Virginia on Friday, March 18 from 5-7pm and on view through April 22, 2022.

Timekeepers features two new bodies of work, including ink drawings and ceramics, that reveal an intimacy with time and place. The title series for the exhibition underscores the significance of drawing across my practice. Intricate and maplike, the Timekeeper drawings are produced on crushed paper, with linework responding to the sculptural terrain, creating a concentrated record of time, process, and attention. Also included are new works from the series Clearing, ceramic tablets that incorporate found materials from the small farm in Virginia where I grew up. These works include layers of underdrawing and glaze using ash and clay soil from the landscape of my youth, and reflect upon the experience of living and working alongside seasonal patterns and timeframes.

Special thanks to Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, where many of the Timekeeper drawings were produced while in residence at The Arts Center at Governors Island, and to Powerhouse Arts and Clayworks on Columbia for their invaluable guidance for the Clearing ceramic works.
