Style has a report on the city's meeting with Gallery 5 to discuss the October First Friday brouhaha here. Fittingly, details about Staunton, Virginia's recently established arts district were juxtaposed with our city officials' unwillingness to discuss a Richmond arts district at their meeting with Gallery 5...
In other news, the Washington Post article on an evening in Richmond is out. This article is positive about the CenterStage experience, but it makes a lot of critical comments about the area surrounding CenterStage. It will be interesting to note whether this account of Richmond will draw as much discussion as did the NYTimes' comments about Richmond's lack of ethnic cuisine.

LUCK OF THE DRAW Combines opportunity and art in a fun game of chance! While attending the event is FREE, you can buy a $100 ticket for a chance to choose unframed works on paper donated by local artists and celebrities! Cash bars, viewing of the Richard Carlyon exhibition in the gallery and live music will add to the festive atmosphere. Daphne Maxwell Reid will preside as MC for the evening, orchestrating the action as ticket holders claim their favorite works.
The evening rolls right into another free event – MUSICIRCUS, a cacophonous collaboration of over 20 musicians curated by jazz drummer Brian Jones that will run 9-10:30 PM.
For more info or to reserve your ticket, contact Karen Miller, Special Events Coordinator, at 353-0094 x 227.

(Great artist statement: click the image to read it, or click the link above to read it at Main Art's site. It's nice when artists can really get to the root of what they are thinking about in a way that seems both concise and honest- Urbanski does this.)
