A new exhibition at Richmond Art Gallery is all about the seemingly ordinary activity of walking.

Opening Saturday, Feb. 2, Andante is a group exhibition featuring artists Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Mike Andrew McLean, Haruko Okano, Ruth Scheuing, Wes Cameron and Matthew Robertson.

The title is defined by Oxford as “in a moderately slow tempo.” The artists explore this theme of walking in a range of media, including photography, woven textiles, audio-visual media, sculpture and installation.

A free, opening reception is planned for Saturday, Feb. 2. It begins with an informal artist talk and tour of the gallery at 2:30 p.m., followed by a free reception from 3 to 5 p.m.

Andante is on until March 24.
