Heads up from Nadya:
Our painting group (whose members are primarily from Church hill) is having their first annual group show down at the Gallery @ 23 West Main, during this upcoming first Friday.
Group Show Featuring: Kelly Flammia, Nadya Warthen-Gibson, Scott Tilghman, Chris Larry, Jes Carey and Rachel Woolwine Davis. (The Hillians)
The Hillians History: A little over a year ago, a group of neighbors began to meet in Shockoe Bottom to paint and create things. Slowly, week after week, as new people came and went, and new projects were started and finished, the Hillians emerged as a supportive and encouraging micro-community of artists.
Named after the many hills of Richmond (and since many members live in Church Hill) they are an eclectic group inspired by diverse things – nature, flowers, city life, Russian folklore, Italian landscapes, as well as each other.
When founding member Nadya Warthen-Gibson moved to Richmond and asked her neighborhood if anyone would be interested in meeting up to create, she planted a seed that has manifested into an exciting and life-giving network for creative people of all kinds, levels, ages and persuasions.
The show opens TONIGHT 6-9 PM at Gallery @ 23 West Broad Street.
TAGGED: calendar, Chris Larry, Jes Carey, Kelly Flammia, Nadya Warthen-Gibson, Rachel Woolwine Davis, Scott Tilghman, The Hillians
