The Crossroads Art Center has served the Richmond, VA area as a Fine Art and Crafts Gallery for over 10 years. Our mission is to exhibit the work of emerging and established artists from the mid-Atlantic region; to promote public awareness and understanding of the concepts of all art forms; and to offer instruction and education in the visual arts. The art center represents over 225 local and regional artists in all types of media.
During the Artwalk on Friday, May 17th 6pm – 9pm
Visitors will learn from the artists what inspires them to create their works of art as they stroll through the 25,000-square-foot facility. They will also listen to music by Steve Duncan and Casey McCue
The Featured Artists will be David Tanner as well as artists participating in
The Central Region of the Virginia Art Educators Association Group Show and The Virginia Home for Boys and Girls Group Show. We will also host the Members Show as well as the All Media Show.
The Richmond Magic Club and the International Brotherhood of Magicians will provide magic. Proceeds from the Beverage Sales will benefit CultureWorks, www.richmondcultureworks.org
CultureWorks’ unified pledge is to help our region have ever stronger arts and culture opportunities that ignite creativity, stimulate thought, show us our history, engage interaction, enable us to see ourselves and our world more clearly, and provide joy!

VHBG serves the community by providing an environment of strength and hope where children and their families are empowered to greater success. During
May, which is National Mental Health Awareness Month, The Virginia Home for Boys and Girls is partnering with Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to help spread the word about children's mental health needs as part of a statewide campaign that will go on throughout the month.
The art on display at Crossroads Art Center can help share the story of the power, beauty and talent of our students at VHBG despite the challenges they work every day to overcome. For information on the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls visit www.vhbg.org
