Well, tonight's the night! The doors to the new gallery will open at 6 p.m this evening and we are pretty much ready for it. Last night the bandÂ did their final soundcheck for tonight's music too, so it should be a fun time. There are aÂ lot of happenings in town tonight besides my opening, and lots of good reasons to come downtown. There is, of course, the First Fridays Art Walk and all of the art openings that are associated with that (inclucing mine). The art walk is in its 6th season now and the momentum has really built over time.
Tonight is also the night for the Grand Illumination downtown at the James Center, and the open house for the newly restored historic Main Street Train Station.Â There are some good restaurants right along the Broad Street Corridor of the Art walk too, so a lot of people make a night of dining and then gallery hopping.Â If you are in Richmond and plan to come downtown this evening please come on by and see the gallery!
I've had too much running around this week to take photos and post them here, but will post follow up pictures after the event.
