Coming in January 2007 I will be operating out of my new location in Richmond's downtown arts district. I just signed the lease for the near-future site of Jennifer Young Studio & Gallery!Â Â The space will be located at 16 E. Main Street, Richmond, VA 23219. This is a beautiful space in the historic Monroe-Ward district located just two blocks from the luxurious Jefferson Hotel.Â My new space will be both my workspace and showroom. We'll hold a grand opening reception and art show with some new works at the new location on Friday, December 1st, 2006 from 6 to 9 p.m. The opening will coincide with Richmond's First Fridays art walk, andÂ I'veÂ invitedÂ Dave's band, "The Unknown Favorites" to play that evening. The show continues on Saturday, December 2nd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Click here to view a map and get directions to the studio. Come visit us if you're in Richmond!
I'm feeling quite excited and a tad nervous about it but it is a good thing. Between now and thenÂ we will be doing a lot of work on the space, securing lighting, signage, permits, etc. In between all of this I'll need to get some painting done too! :-o Â I'll post progress updates as best IÂ canÂ here on the blog.
