A native of New Mexico who earned his MFA from TCU, Ryder Richards will be having a solo exhibition at Art Corridor II (Tarrant County College Southeast, 2100 Southeast Pkwy., Arlington). Pow[d]er will open on Thu., Mar. 24, with a reception starting at 4 p.m., and run through Fri., Apr. 22. Coincidental to University of Texas-Arlington’s recent decrying of prospective legislation that would allow students to carry handguns on campus, Pow[d]er collects Ryder’s massive reckonings and painterly installations of socialized violence, masculinity, and bold power manifesting themselves in an “infrastructure allowing [them] to become so pervasive, so strong, so accepted,” Ryder tells the gallery. The artist often uses gunpowder in his works. Admittance is free. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
