Join the Richmond Times-Dispatch during the First Fridays Art Walk.
What makes the RTD Gallery so unique? All of our featured artists are from the Richmond area. Their work highlights a wide array of genres and styles such as illustration, abstract, expressionism, landscape, nature, wildlife, florals and still lifes. Each artist specializes in different mediums including pen, ink, oil, acrylics, watercolor and more.
Plus, during opening night, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about the influences and inspiration behind each artist's work in an exclusive and personalized artist talk.
Each event takes place the first Friday of every month from 6:30 to 8 p.m., with the artist talk starting at 6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Learn more about our artists below.
Reservations aren't necessary to attend and each event is free to the public. Complimentary parking will be available in the Richmond Times-Dispatch deck. The entrance is on 3rd Street between Grace and Franklin streets.
Our 2017 RTD Gallery series has ended. Thank you for your support.

The burly woman looks content, if her sly smile is any indication. It’s a mystery what she’s thinking as she rests her chin in her palm, one strap of her dress falling carelessly off her shoulder.
