Matt Hawthorne, one our favorite Richmond artists has new work hanging in at Gallery 5 until this weekend.

The works in Richmond native Matthew Hawthorne’s upcoming series, Gut Feeling- comprised of a selection of his older and newer works- focuses on the relationship between man and the man-made. By intertwining elements of the organic and industrial, Hawthorne blurs the line between the two realms.

Gut Feeling will be on display until May 29th. via the Gallery5 blog
