For three months we have been building up to a crescendo of music and dance by RVA Dance Collective. On April 28th, the finale is unveiled-- a collaboration---visual and performing arts. Mike Keeling, painter and photographer presents La Danseuse En Argent (the silver dancer) as RVA Dance Collective brings us performances from the annual Richmond Dance Festival. Join us on April 28, 7-10 p.m. for the opening reception and meet the artists. The exhibits continue through May 21, 2017. This event is free and open to the public. Exhibits Include:


La Danseuse En Argent by Mike Keeling - Mike Keeling, painter and photographer, has spent the past year at Dogtown Dance Theatre working with dancers and models to capture moments of dance. La Danseuse En Argent (the silver dancer) is the result. The exhibit will be in the All-Media Gallery.

Hashtag Revolution: a mark-making inspired journey of mixed-media paintings by Jeanne Minnix- Following in the footsteps of abstract expressionism, Minnix explores how colors and marks weave to form a finished painting. Her work is light, lyrical, calligraphic, airy, atmospheric and energetic. As a graphic designer, the art-making process is a great escape from the confines of the computer. Not only is art fun and full of surprises, but it fosters listening to and trusting my intuition. The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East.


The Last Two Years by Michael Mancuso - This exhibit is comprised of highlights of Mancuso’s photographic work since 2015, with emphasis on the scenic and landscapes. This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery West.

Scenes From Nature, Up Close and Personal by Libby Clark- Born in Washington D.C. and raised in rural Fairfax County, Virginia, Clark is no stranger to nature. A professional photographer for many years, working in the studio, with advertising agencies, and multimedia companies, she finds herself now spending more and more time on strictly creative photography. I love taking pictures of the endless magical scenes found in nature, as well as capturing images of my pets and people. This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.

Havets Sånger: Songs of the Sea - Lana Stephens' charcoal on paper work revolves around Poe's Annabel Lee, and each piece is accompanied by original music by Simon Petersson. Skylight Gallery.
