Gallery 5 to Reopen for Valentine’s Weekend

After being closed for months the gallery is ready to over their formerly virtual show The Great Outdoors in a non-virtual (see in person) format.

Published

Gallery 5 posted the following on FaceBook yesterday.

This Valentine’s Day weekend we are beyond excited to open our doors to the public once again! On both Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 5pm, please join us in checking out our newest all nature-inspired art show, our special hot drinks menu at the bar, tasty snacks, and our new open-air-flow-friendly Art Lounge!
We have taken a great deal of precautions and guidance from health and medical experts to ensure that we can offer as safe an opportunity as possible for our community to gather and enjoy some art.
For those who are not ready to drop by, we have also extended January’s virtual show, The Great Outdoors, for one more month. Visit our website and check out The Great Outdoors, an exhibit curated by local artists. And if you swing by our physical location, enjoy our nature inspired exhibit “Escape.”
Either way, we hope you’ll be our Valentine this weekend, in person or virtually. Stay safe and healthy, everyone. We are excited to slowly get the wheels rolling on all things Gallery5 and look forward to engaging communities through the arts as much as public safety allows!
Please check out our COVID-19 safety measures page before visiting our location to be informed on all our new safety protocols: gallery5arts.org/covid-19

All the Saints Halloween Parade is Back

After a break for something truly scary, the annual Oregon Hill tradition is back.

Published

on

This year the theme is “World on Fire Halloween Parade: A Funeral March for Billionaires and Beyond!”

The parade will start at 7 PM on October 31st, at Laurel and Main streets across from the Altria Theater and will work its way through the Oregon Hill neighborhood.

Though this event is free to the public (as it has been for 16 years!) it takes lots of hard work and money to make this beloved Richmond event happen! Please consider donating to help create a sustainable parade and help pay the artists and puppeteers for all the time and energy they put into manifesting this event. You can make a donation here.

World-famous Bread and Puppet (those of the giant puppets) will be joining in the parade. Mars/hades puppet with rocket ships and billionaires, vultures, hawks, snake dragons (so many massive puppets), stilts, flags, Music, and the Richmond magic with all the Saints flair.

Tour de Fall Line Donation Based this Year

The RVAMore website isn’t up to date with the new race information yet but I’m sure will be available soon.

Published

on

RVA More’s Tour de Fall Line is back but a little different this year. All proceeds directly benefit rvaMORE to help enhance your outdoor experience on our local trails.

The entry fee is WAIVED.

Our only request is that you stop by the rvaMORE tent, say hello and drop 20 bucks into the trail fund wheelbarrow.

This event has been our premier fundraiser for a number of years; but without the aid stations, food, music, and beverages, we
elected to go with optional donations rather than an entry fee.

What to expect: You can choose to ride whatever distance you want and start at any point along the route. As always, GPS maps will be available for download.

The full course will be marked by volunteers. There will be no aid stations.

This is a ride of fun and self-sufficiency – the DNA of MTB riding.

Bring your friends or enjoy a solo soul ride for the day.

We’ll be hanging out all day.

We sincerely hope you can join us for a day of celebrating our city trail system!
