Established August 2015

We were built in order to create a local network of talented artists and crafters whom we plan to collaborate with in future projects. Our goal for the gallery is to become completely self sustainable with our business, a variety of fully functional studio spaces, and plans for a community garden. With this project, we hope to establish and support an arts program for students in a village of Feni, Bangladesh.

We are beyond excited to announce that the projections of Dustin Klein and Alex Criqui will be joining OUR STREETS on opening night this Friday.

Dustin and Alex's projections, which were broadcast almost nightly on the Confederate statue of Robert E. Lee, became a defining feature of the movement in Richmond this summer.

Back in June, we received the wonderful opportunity of partnering with The Vibe District to bring more natural diversity to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. We selected and curated works from @cg_paints ft @versace_heaven’s Neorock Art, @ambrpierce, and a collaboration with @raeesah.757 & @poetry_jackson continuing Poetry’s Veiled Woman series ♥️ These murals will be donated to our home base in Kempsville and will be in our art garden this fall! Special thank you to @katepittman104 for everything you do in our community to give opportunities to artists of every kind ✨ #art #artists #partnership #collaboration #diversity #love #growth #mural #vboceanfront #unity #vibe

I still dunno what to say about this. I mean, I DO, but as of right now I 1.) dont have the time, and 2.) there's so much to say that i dunno where to begin. What I CAN say for certain is that I'd be dead if I didn't do this. Like for real, no exaggeration - I know this for a fact. So yeah, I'm glad I'm still here. Thanks to all y'all who helped me thru. 💜💜💜
