Our talented photographer Jody Adams @artbyothers__ managed to capture some splendid moments from a bustling Friday night at First Fridays in Richmond, VA, along with a few snaps from the weekend performance of Devoids at Get Tight Lounge. From people admiring the exhibits in the galleries, to chess enthusiasts at Maggie Walker square, and chilled-out studio gatherings against a backdrop of vibrant street art, it was a fun night. Take a moment to enjoy these snapshots and see you out there next weekend.
