It’s no surprise that Richmond is a very creative town, and as the temperature continues to climb this summer, it’s the perfect time to chill out while checking out some cool art – in a climate-controlled gallery.



Take a Summer Playcation

Enjoy a Playcation with this brand new exhibit by Jacqui Fehl. Lively and eclectic, this exhibit runs through August 17 in the Jane Sandelin Gallery at Art Works. Celebrate its opening on July 26 at the opening reception with jazzy music and improv from 6-10pm.


Celebrate En Plein Air

Savor the beauty of the outdoors while still inside with the En Plein Air Exhibit. This exhibit celebrates artwork created en plein air during Garden Week by 23 Virginia Artists. This exhibit, currently showing at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in partnership with Crossroads Art Center, runs through September 5.


Create Your Own Summer Masterpiece

When you’re ready to create something yourself, head over to AR Workshop at Stony Point Fashion Park to sign up for a hands on creative workshop creating floral centerpiece boxes, customized signs, decorative items, and more.
