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.

In keeping with summer’s lighter approach to life, Uptown Gallery is offering an exhibit called “Richmond Sampler”. The gallery has gathered a small sample of Richmond artists, both well-known award winners and up-and-coming new artists, for its June show in the ELM Loft space. Even with a limited number of artists, the exhibit manages to offer a great deal of variety, encompassing oil paintings, pastels, watercolors, mixed media and encaustics. All the artists involved are local, and their styles range from abstract to impressionistic to realistic, with a wide variety of subject matter. Artists involved include mixed media artist Pat Angevine, watercolor painters Christopher Wynn and Anne Negus, pastelists Linda Wolitz and Carol Cullinan, encaustic artist Mary Melton and oil painter Cindy Parris. The exhibit runs from June 4-July 26.

MAIN GALLERY & FRABLE GALLERY
New Exhibit "Paint, Paper, Paste: Two Artists, Two Views"
Our July exhibits are exploding with color! In the Main Gallery, featured artists Dare Boles and Marti Franks offer an exhibit of collages and watercolors called “Paint, Paper, Paste: Two Artists, Two Views”. Both artists love color, but use it very differently, and also work in quite different media. Although both have quiet pieces, Ms. Franks’ charming watercolor landscapes and florals tend toward subtle use of pure colors, while Ms. Boles often chooses bright, jewel-toned colors to get her theme of women’s issues across.
In the Frable Gallery, guest artist Sarah Hoyle continues the theme of color with “Stop & Smell the Roses”, but her vivid watercolor florals (not limited to just roses) display an entirely different style than that of Ms. Franks, coming right out and asking for attention rather than attracting through subtle gentleness. Also, in the ELM Loft space, the ongoing “Richmond Sampler” invitational exhibit is attracting much attention as one of the best shows of the year with the quality of the artists and the variety of styles and subject matter.
The opening reception will be on Friday July 11, from 5 to 9 P.M.
Uptown Gallery will be closed on Friday, July 4th.
Both exhibits run from July 1 through August 30, 2014.
