Movie Stars and Me: The Art of Celebrity - by Randy Morrison. Corner Gallery. "With my art and with this exhibit, I hope to give the viewer a chance to re-live, re-visit, look back in retrospect, or perhaps be introduced for the very first time to those fabulous faces and tinsel-filled places that epitomizes the Hollywood of yesteryear and all of the Ballyhoo that went with it. Enjoy."
The Best Of Richmond Photography Meetup Group - Skylight Gallery.
"Richmond Photography Meetup Group is a casual photography club in Richmond associated with meetup.com. We are all enthusiasts of photography at all different levels. Some are just beginners and some are experienced professionals. We create events where we get together and do photography socially. We learn from each other and encourage each other and most of all have fun! This show is but a small sampling of the amazing talent we have in our group. Each photographer has a love for photography and selected a work that they are proud of. We are proud to be able to bring this show to Artworks and thankful to them for allowing us to be part of their beautiful gallery. Enjoy!" -Robert Pfeifer, Organizer

Serenity by Alexangel Estevez This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.
"I paint nature because of its intrinsic beauty. Replicating is not my purpose, but to bring back a piece of what took me there in the first place. My eyes capture scenes and explores the details of nature that often elude us as we pass by. I enjoy being swept away with breathtaking views. As an artist, my passion is to express myself through oils on canvas... by pushing and pulling the paint and capturing the moment nature provides.." - Estevez
The Eye of a Poet: Recent Works of Dorothy Marie Rice- This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, East
