It’s been a year to remember, and despite all the things we have all had to endure in 2020, there are so many things to be grateful for and look back on with joy as we go through the holidays and transition in 2021. Here at Shockoe Artspeak we had a slew of new guests, friends and artists that we have worked with and been blessed by knowing, so we just wanted to spend a few minutes to look back and say thanks.
This week Ryan and Garreth take the time to wish all of our listeners a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Shockoe Artspeak and Shockoe Artspace. We wouldn’t be where we are today without all of the generous support we receive, so thank you! Enjoy the holidays, and make sure you take some time to really rest. Cheers to moving into 2021!
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; even a few bucks can be a big help!
Stream our documentary The Builder!
For a limited time, our documentary The Builder is available to stream on Vimeo! 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, and Bill Fisher to name just a few. Check out more at The Builder’s website.
