Nonprofit Sponsor: Virginia Pride “Virginia Pride works to make the Richmond Region a better place for LGBTQ people to live, work and visit through community advocacy and dozens of events including an annual Pridefest that is attended by more than 40,000 people. In April of 2021, Virginia Pride merged with Diversity Richmond in a historic move intended to increase the capacity of both organizations to better serve the LGBTQ community. Its work is guided by an all-volunteer committee of LGBTQ and allied community members and is supported by some of the region’s most recognizable companies including Capitol One, CarMax, Altria and Wells Fargo and national sponsors Nissan North America, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Jack Daniel’s.”

Robin Caspari and Students
For years now, a community of painters has been gathering at Running Mare; farm and studio of Robin Caspari. Painters come and go with the ebb and flow of life, some have been there since the beginning, but all are dedicated to the time spent painting and learning with others at the farm. The scenery is gorgeous, the sweet breeze cleanses our souls, and the hustle and bustle of life are put on pause as we immerse ourselves into the language of art. There are beginners to professionals that all equally share time and artistic conversation together; we all learn together in this magical environment. If you are interested in painting with us, please check my website at www.robincaspari.com for upcoming classes.
