We opened Art Works in 2003 to serve the artists of Richmond by providing a place to make, exhibit and sell artwork. Our vision has been realized , grown and is always renewing itself as we’ve become an integral part of the community. We have ties with Easter Seals UCP, the Richmond SPCA, Earth Day Richmond Festival, Richmond high school arts programs and more.
How did this happen? When someone gets an idea for a special project, we’re ready to hear about it and give it a try. And if it sounds like fun, well that makes it even better.
Paula Demmert- Art Works, Inc. Co-owner
"I have always enjoyed working with people. Being here at Art Works gives me the chance to get to know so many wonderful artists, from the person who has never shown their work before, to the talented jurors who select the work for the All Media Shows. A photographer by trade, I have come to appreciate and enjoy all types of art."
Glenda Kotchish - Art Works, Inc. Co-owner
"I am a painter and ceramic artist. But I’m also a business lady and love being part of the community, solving problems with creative solutions. I’ve programmed computers and been an analyst as well as a banker, so all these skills I use at Art Works. I love a party, so 4th Friday receptions at Art Works is perfect for me – a party every month… except December that is. "
Jessica Boyland - Assistant Gallery Director
"I started with Art Works in 2004 while earning my BFA from VCU in Painting and Printmaking. I make charcoal drawings, portraits, color field paintings, and various crafts. In addition to helping run Art Works, I lead figure drawing sessions in the gallery twice a month, and teach children's art classes."
