Exhibitions through September 3
Exhibitions through Septembe 3 include work from the Virginia Currents 25th Anniversary Photo Contest, a fine art print sale by World Art Group, an RVA Guides art poster exhibition, and Crossroads' annual members show.
The Virginia Currents 25th Anniversary Photo Contest was held from October 2015 to April 2016 and encouraged community members to share their own “Virginia stories.” Each month, two photos were highlighted on the local PBS stations WCVE and WHTJ, one chosen by a featured artist from the community and the other by popular vote. The photo contest was a way for individuals to see and share their own stories with the community.
The Community Idea Stations and various artists within the exhibit will be at the open house and reception. Come share your story in person with the people behind Virginia Currents. View highlights from the series and photographs from community members
World Art Group has earned a stellar reputation by creating beautiful and unique high-quality wall décor — from traditional hand-colored and embellished art to contemporary giclée and poster prints. Prints will be available 50% off the wholesale price.
CVRMLS has donated RVA Guides posters from its 2016 marketing campaign for an exhibition in Gallery One. Produced in collaboration with local creative agency Punch, the artwork is a modern spin on mid-20th century art travel posters. CVRMLS is releasing nine posters in groups of three throughout the year. Each highlights a specific attraction or locality of Richmond or the Tri-Cities region. The campaign seeks to bolster regional community pride, while strengthening the REALTOR® brand.

Each session is limited to four hours with a lunch break (brown bag or lunch next door at Gretchen's). Fee: $40 per session.
