Jennifer Glave and BJ Kocen, partners in both business and in life, established Glave Kocen gallery in 2007 in the heart of Richmond, VA. Glave Kocen is a prominent contemporary gallery featuring 3200 square feet of exhibition space and serves as home to more thirty emerging & established artists. GK gallery encourages both art lovers as well as four-legged friends to visit. Lucy, gallery canine extraordinaire and RVA's very own "parti poodle" (due to her partially-colored coat), welcomes guests during regular business hours. Here at GK gallery, we thrive on serving our community, creating a space where both artists and patrons feel welcome and appreciated, and pride ourselves on presenting some of RVA's most unique works of art.
Artists include: Josh George, Susan Morosky, James Del Grosso, Greg Osterhaus, Steven Walker, Rodger Bechtold, Steve Hedberg, Matt Lively, Mark Chatterley, Rob Browning, Sheep Jones, Glen Kessler and Ed Trask.

A note about the owners...
BJ & Jenn have been partners in business and in life for over a decade. When they're not working in the gallery, BJ keeps busy writing and performing his own music. He recently released a double album, Old Lake/Searching For Signal, now available on iTunes. You can also find BJ every Sunday from 1-3pm at Stir Crazy Cafe performing a mix of original work, as well as covering a few jams. Jenn enjoys spoiling their poodle Lucy with love and affection, reading crime dramas, as well as traveling when time permits. The couple has poured their passion, heart, and soul into Glave Kocen gallery, and hopes you'll feel that upon entrance to the space.
