PANEL: For the Love of Books

In 2010, Gordon Stettinius founded an independent publishing company, Candela Books, which has published monographs from Gita Lenz, Shelby Lee Adams, Chris McCaw, Willie Anne Wright, Kahn & Selesnick and others. Candela's most recent release (March 2019) is "Pine Tree Ballads" by Virginia Commonwealth University professor, Paul Thulin.

As an artist, Stettinius' work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and his work is represented by Robin Rice Gallery in New York and Page Bond Gallery in Richmond, Virginia . His work is in the permanent collections of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Longwood University, the Telfair Museums, Capital One and many other private and public collections. He is also an emeritus member of 1708 Gallery in Richmond, Virginia.

Stettinius founded Candela Gallery in 2011 with the mission being to bring notable photographers to Richmond, Virginia, in hopes of elevating the discourse around contemporary photography. The gallery produces 7-8 feature exhibitions a year; one or two book related exhibitions each year; and one unbridled, free-for-all, group exhibition each summer. This summer exhibition, Unbound!, has given rise to an annual celebration, which raises funds and acquires work from the annual exhibition for the Candela Collection, which will be donated ultimately to another permanent collection.
