Gibson’s Paws for a Cause Arts & Animals!

Twenty-five percent of proceeds from art sales and all ticket purchases to the preview reception will benefit the lifesaving programs and services of the Richmond SPCA!

Please join us for a very special collectors’ reception preview art show on Friday, June 23 at Brazier Gallery in The Fan from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets to the reception are $80 per person and each ticket comes with a $80 credit towards one (1) piece of artwork.

Plein Air Richmond brings artists from all over the United States to Richmond for one amazing week of painting our beautiful and historic city. Plein air painting is typically done outside rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French en plein air, meaning “in the open air.” Participating artists consider Plein Air Richmond to be one of the top plein air events in the country − it is helping to put Richmond on the map as an arts destination for the artists and patrons alike.

The event will take place June 19 to 25 with highlights including a ticketed collectors’ preview sale and awards reception on Friday, June 23, a public art sale on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25 and a “Fast and Fresh” two-hour painting competition on Saturday, June 24 in Carytown. “Fast and Fresh” paintings can be purchased right off the easel! The wonderful art in the show will include oil paintings and watercolors in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and prices. Plein Air Richmond pieces are all created throughout the week of June 19 through 26 and daily painting locations will include The Fan, Church Hill, Monument Avenue, Rocketts Landing and more. The public is encouraged to observe the artists in action! For up to the minute updates as to where you can find the artists painting, please follow us on Twitter!

You don’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity to celebrate our lovely city by adding beauty and art to your home and to help homeless animals at the same time!
