As an artist's co-op, Uptown Gallery allows each visitor to experience the artwork and the artists who created it. The gallery's unique feature is that it is staffed by the artists themselves. Each time you visit the gallery you will have the rare opportunity to meet one of the artists whose work is shown here. The gallery has more than 30 outstanding artists, with work in a varied palette of media and techniques.
Tuesday - Friday 11am - 5pm
Saturday 11am - 4pm
Uptown Gallery is open the first Friday of every month 5pm - 9pm. During the first Friday opening light refreshments are served.
Reception will be on Friday January 9th from 5 to 9 p.m.
Continuing Exhibits “Creativity on Display” (December 2, 2014 – January 31, 2015)
“Creativity on Display” offers a broad spectrum of fine art created by members of the Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association. Works on display include mosaics and oil, acrylic, mixed media, pastel and watercolor paintings. Artists had free rein in subject matter, media, and technique, so variety rules and there is a wealth of art created from the heart.
The Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association (MRAA) was created in 2005 from the merger of two long-running art groups, the Richmond Artists Association and the Metropolitan Artists Association. There are over fifty members, who promote and encourage the creation of all forms of visual art and share information through group-sponsored workshops, programs and exhibits. It is fitting that the group hold their exhibit at Uptown Gallery since Metropolitan members were instrumental in
founding Uptown Gallery twenty-two years ago.
“Art for Gifting” small works for holiday gifts will exit gallery January 14th, by one of many Uptown member artists. Subject matter and media range widely, and there is something to delight any lover of art.
Wilma Bradner's portraiture show, ""Capturing the Essence", offers contemporary-style paintings of humans and animals that also buoy one's mood.

New Exhibits “Art For All Seasons”
This show is devoted to the four seasons, and there will be plenty of works that allow the viewer to escape (at least mentally) to warmer climes and more pleasant thoughts. Whether you prefer the crispness of autumn, the heat of summer, or the blooms and breezes of spring, there will be paintings there to make you dream.
The opening reception will be on Friday January 9th from 5 to 9 p.m. Show runs through January 31st.
