Linden Row Inn is a proud supporter of the arts. On that note, 1708 Gallery, a local arts nonprofit, has been provided exclusive access to organize seasonal art exhibitions in the public areas of the Linden Row Inn.
The work is displayed in the Parlour Lobby and Dining Room for guests and the public to enjoy. Part of the mission of 1708 Gallery's curatorial work for this venue is to show contemporary art that complements and creates a bridge with the historic interior and unique architechture of the Linden Row Inn.
The works on exhibition at the Linden Row Inn are available for sale, and all proceeds from the sale of art go directly to the artist and 1708 Gallery.
Linden Row Inn participates in First Fridays RVA with a reception the first Friday of every month from 5 to 9 p.m.
Current Exhibition: SPEED: New Ideas / Old Terrain
1708 Gallery is pleased to present Speed: New Ideas/Old Terrain, a satellite exhibition at Linden Row Inn through January 10, 2016. Through the works of Remy Bordas, Renate Haimerl Brosch, Leigh Anne Chambers, Peter Eudenbach, Sarah Hand, Fanny Jaquier, Magnolia Laurie and Matt Lively, this exhibition focuses on the concept of literal and metaphorical movement. Using techniques spanning from painting and drawing to intimate and large sculpture, the artists examine vehicles of motion, the conveyance of energy, and concepts of time and transformation to construct a broad interpretation surrounding the word speed.
Amie Oliver, curator of this exhibition, was able to expand this concept further via her connection to the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, where she first saw Magnolia, a Baltimore artist, and Bavarian artists Fanny and Renate's work, where they were Fellows. Peter, a Norfolk artist and Leigh Anne, who works in Courtland, are both connected to Rawls Museum Arts, an affiliate of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Finally, Matt, Sarah and Remy are all part of the Richmond art community that consists of 1708 Gallery, Quirk and the Art Lab at 2216 Hull Street. The world is a big place but art and the love of cycling makes it feel much smaller this season.
Special thanks to 1708 Gallery for curating and installing this exhibition. For further information on 1708 Gallery, please go to www.1708gallery.org or visit them at 319 W. Broad Street, Tuesday through Friday between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
