History + Mission

Located in Plant Zero Arts Center in Richmond's Manchester district, artspace mounts eleven new exhibitions every year with opening receptions on Fourth Fridays. artspace's five galleries feature 20 foot ceilings with both track and filtered natural light in a renovated industrial space. The largest gallery accommodates museum-size two- and three-dimensional work, sitespecific installation and video/multimedia. The smallest gallery offers an intimate viewing experience for works in all media. The gallery Shop sells work by artist members and past exhibitors.

Exhibitions open on Fourth Fridays with a reception from 6 to 9 pm. On closing Sundays, Gallery Talks by the exhibiting artists begin at 2 pm. Opening receptions and Gallery Talks are free and open to the public. artspace holds two biennial exhibitions ThinkSmall miniature invitational, and radius250.
