June First Friday: RVA 50 Mile Fest!!

June 1, 2018


For this month's First Friday, Gallery5 will be joined by The Great Big Everything to present a night of entertainment, informative visuals, and a chance to meet the many makers, vendors, and creators in the region. All entries are free and doors will be open from 7pm to midnight. Come grab a drink, see some art, jam out to some music, and meet some of the awesome local businesses, organizations, and people who have come together for this event!



May First Friday Showcase: Art, Music, Market and you!

Come on out to Gallery5 on May 4th for RVA First Fridays as we celebrate art, music, creativity, libations, and camaraderie! 

200 W. Marshall St.

Nathaniel Rappole’s solo project Gull is best described as a drum; a living, breathing, squawking drum that cries out assorted music of creatures past and delivers it from a single unique perspective; a communal music broadcast of blood and bile left as an offering on the altar of sound. 

Parlor Walls



Jarred Barr is a 17 year old local artist, who has worked in and around Richmond, painting murals and working with other local artists on various projects for the past several years, including at the RVA Street Art Festivals. This is his 5th solo show, and the largest yet, with mostly new work from the past year! 

This body of work focuses on drawing and lettering, and one large cardboard sculpture. Predominately inspired by song lyrics, stories and memories, and everyday scenes that go unnoticed, all lined with colorful frames built by hand for each piece. 

A showcase of occult inspired surrealist art featuring:
The Lady Octavia, Jean-Baptiste, Joesphine Russell, Kelly McLeod, Lauren & Jacob Borchardt.

“Gold for a Silver Situation”

Former New Yorker and Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown once noted that, “women have always had to be gold for a silver situation” - to work harder and be better, just to be classed amongst the pack.
Today, even as there are more and more stories calling for art that speaks to women's personal lived experiences, commissioning work from a woman can be an afterthought - despite the incredible talent and intellect amongst women artists.

Representation is important. Many women who work in illustration and narrative art didn’t have mentors to look up to who looked like them, whose lives looked the way they imagined theirs to look. The problem is many-fold for queer folks and women of color. These twelve Richmond artists are a small slice of what women are bringing to the field, and their work makes clear, they should not be considered an afterthought.

Work by:
Katie McBride
Victoria Borges
Holly Camp
Mary Chiaramonte
Clara Cline
Melissa Duffy
Ally Hodges
Brooke Inman
Kamille Jackson
Meena Khalili
Amelia Blair Langford
