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

 Uptown's opening scheduled for January 5th will be postponed until Friday, January 12th. 

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.

New Exhibits
In January and February, Uptown Gallery presents its annual All-Member show. The only yearly exhibit where all the Uptown artists show together is also the only one to have a common theme, yet the variety of media and styles is amazing. This year's exhibit is called "I Must Be Dreaming". Since dreams can be quite realistic or entirely surreal, the artists have a wide leeway in which to work, painting their dreams or nightmares, if they prefer. The theme is broad enough to allow for something new and different, or for concentration on a favorite subject matter. It will be a stimulating exhibit, with a wide variety of subjects and approaches to art. The artists will be showing together, rather than taking turns, so visitors will be able to see the work of many different artists at once. The show will occupy both the Main and the Frable galleries.
The opening reception will be held on Friday January 5, from 5 to 8:30 PM.
A reception will also be held Friday, February 2, from 5 to 8:30 PM.

The exhibits run from January 3 February 24, 2018
Go to the Main & Frable Gallery

Continuing Exhibits

Works include oils, watercolors, photographs collages, and giclee prints, while subject matter encompasses landscape, still-life, floral and figurative works and abstracts.
The sale will run through January 24, 2018.
