General History and Mission

Artspace began in 1988 as an association of artists interested in exhibiting their own  work and providing a space for other artists to reach a wider audience in the greater Richmond, Virginia area.

Since then, Artspace has maintained a gallery committed to showing first quality visual art in a variety of innovative styles and media.

The gallery has also been the forum for original work in poetry, prose, drama, dance and music.

The monthly exhibitions and performance art series have placed Artspace on the cutting edge of the artistic scene in Richmond.

Artspace is a nonprofit gallery for the visual and performing arts, promoting the understanding and awareness of contemporary art.
