We couldn’t have made it this far without each and every one of our fantastic listeners, so thank you so much for helping us make this podcast what it is today. It has been a crazy 18 months. We wouldn’t have believed you if you had told us everything that has taken place in the last year. And a small part of us might not have believed we would make it to 50 episodes.
So here we are. This week, Ryan and Garreth sit down and discuss the last year and a half as well as the new things that are on the horizon for Shockoe Artspace. Also, we talk about our good friend, Ken.
Check out our documentary The Builder!
The Builder is a story about friendship and the powerful way the interconnectivity of people living and moving throughout a city can help to build culture. The film centers on the art scene in Richmond, Virginia, with a focus on Oregon Hill native and contractor Don Childress, who–to the surprise of many–has an incredible contemporary art collection. This collection includes work from Francisco Clemente, Ron Johnson, Heidi Trepaneir and Bill Fisher to name just a few. Check out more at The Builder’s website.
New Show! New Show! New Show! New Show!
After a pandemic hiatus, Shockoe Artspace is finally going to have a new opening! We have four phenomenal artists who are making some amazing work to get us all back in the gallery this October. For more information, be sure to check out the Shockoe Artspace website.
Help Ken Gilbertson and Hatchback Gallery!
Our good friend Ken is trying to update Hatchback Gallery to better serve his new city and its art lovers. While he won’t let anyone touch the outside of the gallery, he does want to get a few new parts and build some new walls. We are helping Ken launch a GoFundMe, so be on the lookout for how you can help bring Hatchback Gallery to a neighborhood near you!
