Design meets art on Virginia Street in historic Shockoe Slip with the opening of The Virginia Street Gallery, downtown Richmond’s premier showcase artist collective. Bringing the best of the Downtown Arts District and Richmond’s art galleries to the new Shockoe Design District, the Virginia Street Gallery represents a collaboration between two of Richmond’s vanguard creative communities.
The Virginia Street Gallery brings together more than 50 artists and galleries, many more commonly associated with the Richmond Arts District on Broad Street. Included are satellite locations presented by Quirk, Ghostprint and Eric Schindler galleries, as well as many of the locally and nationally-acclaimed artists whose works they exhibit like Thomas Van Auken, Bob Scott, Adam Goldsmith, Peter Fowler and Annegret A. Massey. Also lending their strong presence to the Virginia Street Gallery are many of Richmond’s established ceramics and sculpture artists who make their home at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, including instructor Jeff Vick.
With its mix of fine arts and curated gallery offerings, the Virginia Street Gallery represents a first for Richmond’s Shockoe area, showcasing contemporary elegance in fine arts, clothing, jewelry, furniture, quirky gifts and items for the home in an evolving space that is a short walk from the historic Kanawha Canal.
In addition to the Virginia Street Gallery, the Shockoe Design District is home to many preeminent Richmond names in home design and personal apparel, including These Four Walls, LaDifference, Ten Thousand Villages, Ledbury and many, many more retailers, restaurants and shops.
