Richmond cropped by RVA Photographers Collective
Award-winning photographer Janneke Kotte brings together talented photographers from Greater Richmond in this exhibition. RVA Photographers Collective, founded by photographer Adam Lewis, focused on strengthening their creative eye by capturing the cityscape through various perspectives. As they photograph the cityscape of Richmond, the group provides feedback for each study. This exhibition reveals Richmond with a fresh perspective.
This exhibition will be in the Galerie du Center.
________________________________________ Guitar strings notes by Karen Palmer
Karen Palmer’s exhibition is inspired by music. As a musician, singer, songwriter, and guitarist who performed in Richmond cover bands, Karen discovered that music migrated into her paintings. Guitars and drums have found their way onto his canvases. This first happened during the isolation of COVID19 and the results were so intriguing that Karen created a complete job. This exhibition will be in the Corner Gallery
From RVA to Virginia Beach by Jeff Morris
Jeff Morris enjoys painting the rivers of Virginia and the landscapes of Richmond. His oil paintings are full of color and texture. This exhibition will be in the Skylight Gallery.
