LEIGH ANNE CHAMBERS, the Executive Director at Rawls Museum Arts, a partner of the VMFA, holds over 8 years of experience in the museum field. Bringing contemporary art to rural regions, Chambers has received numerous grants for arts education. Chambers, a nationally exhibiting artist, will jury and curate radius250.

ARTSPACE is a non-profit, member-run gallery, which has been in existence since 1988. It has become an urban pioneer, moving to and improving "undiscovered" areas of Richmond. One of the most beautiful gallery spaces in Richmond and Virginia, artspace exhibits works by regional, national, and international artists.

Plant Zero, the home of artspace, houses sixty studios for working artists, a Cafe, event space, and offices for area arts-focused, non-profit organizations. Plant Zero takes up an entire block in the Manchester Arts District, which was primarily an industrial area until 2004. Manchester is just across the James River from Shockoe Slip and Shockoe Bottom, historic districts that have long been favorite destinations for visitors.




artspace is pleased to present the 2011 edition of radius250. The fourth installment of radius250 is juried by Leigh Anne Chambers and represents work from artists living within a 250-mile radius of richmond, Virginia. Chambers is an artist and the Executive Director of the Rawls Museum Arts in Courtland, Virginia.

One hundred and sixty one artists submitted work with over 540 individual submissions. Of these, forty-seven pieces were selected from forty artists. Several prizes will be awarded including a solo show in the Helena Davis Gallery.
