Gallery 5 and RVA have been tight for years. You may have been to a joint party of ours there, or just seen magazines & our people there, as well. We launched at the same time, with the same goal of enriching Richmond’s art scene (albeit with different paths and tax filings). We’ve all had a ton of fun at the gallery, and now, reality is setting in. The building is one hundred and sixty years old and roofs don’t fix themselves. From G5’s website:
If you have visited Gallery5 in the past year it is likely you have noticed that the rain has been just as eager to see our great art and events as you have. As much as we appreciate all of our visitors, the rain has not been a welcomed guest. Countless efforts to patch the 160 year old roof has proven that the leaks are beyond repair and continuing to get worse. Unfortunately now the only way to keep the rain out is with a new roof.
You possess the opportunity to keep Virginia’s oldest fire station, and Richmond’s oldest police station a part of your city’s heritage. Your generous donation will allow Gallery5 to keep dazzling your eyes with innovative and groundbreaking art through our monthly exhibitions, and tickle your senses with our wide variety of performance events.
Please take this opportunity to show your support by donating $25, $50, $100, $200 or more to protect this national historic landmark and Richmond’s most popular art gallery from the damage caused by it’s unwelcome guest.
