Race in Richmond Community Night // Tuesday, June 25th, 5:00 – 8:00 pm // The Gallery at Main St. Station, 1500 E. Main Street 

Visit Main Street Station to immerse yourself in the latest Race in Richmond exhibits, “I See You: A Portrait Experience” and “I Hear You: A Speaking Experience.” Curated by Ashley Williams and Ron Stokes, along with a passionate team of local artists and volunteers committed to community healing, these exhibits are open to the public at The Gallery at Main Street Station until June 30th. The exhibits aim to dive into the essence of Richmond’s people and underscore a dedication to celebrating humanity in its truest form. 

Ashley Williams shares, “We are capturing the humans that make up the vibrancy of the city of Richmond. Portraits will be an ode to continued work in centering humanity unapologetically and authentically. 

In curating this exhibition, my intention is to create a space where every individual feels seen, valued, and understood. ‘Race in Richmond: I See You’ is a call to witness each other with compassion, to embrace our differences, and to recognize the profound commonalities that unite us all. 

It’s a merge of creativity, collaboration, and contemplative practice, and the hope is that it continues to ignite conversation between varying experiences that promotes action. I look forward to people witnessing themselves in the portraits and meditations.” 

This community-powered effort, Race in Richmond invites contributions to fuel the sustainability of these exhibits and future work. All monetary contributions will support important conversations and actions around race, love, and liberation for all, through The Well Collective. 

The exhibits will be open daily during Main Street Station open hours. Upcoming community events include: 

  • Community Night: Tuesday, June 25, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm 
  • Community Healing Practice & Closing Reception: Friday, June 28, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm RSVP here. Contribute here.
