on view: "Garden of Earthly Delights" at the Linden Row Inn

Garden of Earthly Delights celebrates the rites of spring and the cyclical nature of creativity. The exhibition includes a series of globes created by noted artists to commemorate 1708 Gallery's thirtieth anniversary as well as sculpture, painting and drawing. Please note 100 percent of the sale each globe will benefit 1708 Gallery's Exhibitions and Educational Programming. This exhibition is free and open to the public through May 24. The satellite exhibitions at 1708 reflect the nature of Richmond. It is a city of contemporary art and artists who pursue their work in a historic setting.

Please visit this link for biographical info on each artist and detailed photos of each globe depicted in this exhibition. Stay tuned for an announcement of a special Earth Day Event in the lovely courtyard of the Linden Row Inn.
