Natural Awakenings Richmond

Head on Over to the New Artspace

Artspace Gallery is now open at 2833-A Hathaway Road in the Stratford Hills Shopping Center, south of the James. With a sense of renewal, a cadre of local artists has brought this artist-run, contemporary gallery space into being. A teaching space is a welcome addition to the new location, offering further opportunities for engaging the community.

Artspace’s exhibitions often reflect artists’ concerns with both society and the natural world. March exhibits include Mona Dworkin’s haunting portraits, Carl Patow’s vibrant digital pieces and Elaine Rogers’ work inspired by social and cultural issues.

There are many reasons to visit the gallery: the meditative act of art appreciation; finding inspiration by viewing exciting and challenging works; the cathartic act of making art; and talking and collaborating with other artists and art lovers. Artspace hosts fresh exhibitions each month, with a public reception usually held on Fourth Fridays. Auction events, juried shows, invitational exhibitions, wine tastings, special events and calls for proposals from artists round out their offerings for both artists and community members.
