070. State of the Studio 2021

It’s January, and everyone tends to be pretty quick to make resolutions, plan out the year, and promise that this one will be better. We’re no different, because we sit down each January and plan out what the next year will look like for the gallery, the podcast and all the hopeful things that are on the horizon. And so far, a lot of those meetings have resulted in projects we couldn’t be more proud of.

This week, Ryan and Garreth sit down to talk about where Shockoe Artspace and Shockoe Artspeak are and where we they will be going in 2021. Amazing listeners like you have made this podcast successful, and it has given us even more energy to dive into new projects like books, spin-offs and some honest-to-goodness mentorship experiences!

Our award-winning 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.

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!
