Welcome to the website of Uptown Gallery Richmond Virginia's Premier Artist's Co-op

As an artist's co-op, Uptown Gallery allows each visitor to experience the artwork and the artists who created it. The gallery's unique feature is that it is staffed by the artists themselves. Each time you visit the gallery you will have the rare opportunity to meet one of the artists whose work is shown here. The gallery has more than 30 outstanding artists, with work in a varied palette of media and techniques.

11 AM to 4 PM on Saturdays.

New Exhibits
Uptown Gallery continues its exploration of color in a sixth judged color exhibit, "What To Do With Orange?" Judged by highly respected Richmond artist Susan Singer, the exhibit is open to any Richmond artist who exploits the special qualities of the color orange to make their art sing. How can an artist use this color? Long associated with sunsets and flame, can it be used more subtly? Each artist will reveal his own unique interpretation. The exhibit is open to photographs, drawings, paintings and three-dimensional works, with interpretations even more varied than the media. The show's judge is an award-winning artist who works in oil, pastel acrylic, multi-media and watercolor. An inspired teacher of many media, she currently teaches privately and at the Visual Arts Center.. She will decide which works make best use of the color orange, and will award prizes and ribbons during her gallery talk on Friday, June 1st, during the opening reception. The exhibit runs through July 28, 2018.

The opening reception will be held on Friday June 1, from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
A reception will also be held Friday, July 6, from 5 to 8:30 pm.
