Top Ten RVA Art Things To Look Forward To In 2010

Helena Wurzel's "Do I Look Expensive?"
Wurzel will be featured in Russell/Projects first show, opening January 2010

(In no particular order)

1. Reopening of VMFA in May 2010

2. Opening of Russell/Projects January 22nd, 2010

3. Next issue of Daily Constitutional

4. News on what this is...

5. Loren Schwerd's "Mourning Portraits," April 9th at Visarts

6. Barbara Campbell Thomas's show at 1708, opening January 8th

7. Art Works conference free-for-everyone session January 26th (registration is necessary, though this day is free)

8. Steps toward establishing a Richmond arts and culture district

9. More shows at the Whitley Gallery, Reference, and at Transmission's new home (In addition to Russell/Projects, these are Richmond's newest art spaces.)

10. More new RVA artist collectives doin' it for themselves- like Last Month (RVA Mag reports here) and 7 Degrees of Separation

Honorable Mentions:

*Brick Weekly hopefully will get its current content back online

*RVA artist Jen Figg's exhibition at CACV opening January 2010 (CACV is a little bit of a hike, but we have a feeling this show will be well worth the trip.)

*Return of Belinda Haikes's blog "Life, the Universe, and Art": Okay, so maybe Haikes isn't currently an RVA artist, but she has interviewed some past and present Richmond artists on her blog, plus, it's a darn good blog.
