Richmond cropped by RVA Photographers Collective

Janneke Kotte, an award-winning photographer, brings together talented Greater Richmond photographers in this exhibition. RVA Photographers Collective, founded by photographer Adam Lewis, focused on strengthening their creative eye by capturing the cityscape through different perspectives. As they photograph the Richmond cityscape, the group shares feedback for each study. This exhibition reveals Richmond from a new perspective.

This exhibition will be in the central gallery.

________________________________________Guitar String Notes by Karen Palmer

Karen Palmer’s exhibition is inspired by music. As a musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist who has played in Richmond cover bands, Karen has found music migrating in her paintings. Guitars and drums have found their place on his canvases. This first happened during the COVID19 isolation and the results were so intriguing that Karen created a full body of work. This exhibition will be in the Corner Gallery


From RVA to Virginia Beach by Jeff Morris

Jeff Morris enjoys painting the waterways of Virginia and the landscapes of Richmond. His oil paintings are full of colors and textures. This exhibition will be in the Skylight Gallery.
