In the fall of 2015, several local gallery owners and directors, from 1708 Gallery, ADA gallery, Candela Books + Gallery, glave kocen gallery, Page Bond Gallery, Quirk Gallery, and Reynolds Gallery, joined together to establish Richmond's first contemporary art fair. Coined CURRENT (a nod to the nearby James River, the idea of the new, and the notion of an electric spark), the fair will be held October 20 - 23, 2016 at HOHMAN DESIGN in Scott’s Addition.
CURRENT will emphasize accessible opportunities to collect art and will feature works from local, national and internationally recognized artists. CURRENT presents art for collectors of all levels, from new to seasoned, and features special access to many of the areas gallerists and curators.
CURRENT is free and open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A VIP Preview Party will be held on Thursday evening. Tickets for the Thursday preview are for sale for $50.
