install-night2The Ryder Jon Piotrs Nomadic Gallery presents No.3: What you do after No. 2, an exhibit of contemporary Texas artists held in conjunction with the Waypoint Gallery in Marfa, Texas. The group show will feature new pieces questioning and commenting on the nature of a nomadic gallery, societal perceptions and personal identity.  The artists work in a range of media including steel, ceramics, installation and painting.  The nomadic gallery event will coincide with the Chinanti Open House weekend, October 9th and 10th, 2008.  Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, October 10th, 2008. During the opening reception guests will provide music.  This event is free and open to the public.

Thomas and Christopher Walnoha. Each artist has developed a method of assessing and refining their work that not only confronts, but also speaks of aesthetics and unique presentation. Several of the artists display a tongue in cheek humor while commenting on grave issues that face our world, while others focus their energy on process and engage the complexities of material and mind.

Ryder Jon Piotrs (RJP) is a collaborative art group celebrating our third year of exhibits by returning to Marfa, the site of our first nomadic exhibition. The gallery is comprised of a 24 foot Ryder moving truck converted into a sophisticated gallery space complete with track lighting. The Waypoint Gallery generously offered space to the RJP Nomadic Gallery for this year’s exhibition. Waypoint Gallery is located at 208 South Summer Street, Marfa, Texas.
