Linden Row Inn is a proud supporter of the arts. On that note, 1708 Gallery, a local arts nonprofit, has been provided exclusive access to organize seasonal art exhibitions in the public areas of the Linden Row Inn.
The work is displayed in the Parlour Lobby and Dining Room for guests and the public to enjoy. Part of the mission of 1708 Gallery's curatorial work for this venue is to show contemporary art that complements and creates a bridge with the historic interior and unique architechture of the Linden Row Inn.
The works on exhibition at the Linden Row Inn are available for sale, and all proceeds from the sale of art go directly to the artist and 1708 Gallery.
Linden Row Inn participates in First Fridays RVA with a reception the first Friday of every month from 5 to 9 p.m.
Remap: Artists Investigate New Terrain features works by Studio Two Three, Katie Baines, Rosemary Jesionowski, Chris Mahonski, Patricia Smith, Hilary Wilder, Kate Woodliff O'Donnell, and Kim Young . The exhibition is on view through May 11, 2014.
My husband, a writer and historian, who dutifully and enthusiastically views each exhibition at the Linden Row Inn, never fails to observe that the two framed maps in the dining room do not depict geographical features of Richmond, but are of other Virginia locales. The idea for this exhibition was born when remembering this as I watched Studio Two Three's steamroller press the plate that created the wall-sized tapestry map of Richmond that is currently on view in the dining room. Traditionally, when considering a map, the paper (or plane) represents the surface of the earth. The artists exhibiting in ReMap demonstrate that surface and plane are opportunities to choose a different path in which to document their journey.
