The 3rd edition of Art Whino Gallery’s G-40 summit takes place from April 5th – May 5th in Richmond, VA. This year, the show focused on the art of the mural, and 12 artists painted 20 large scale walls through the city. The show also had a 500+ artist exhibit spread throughout 6 different locations in the art district. I was fortunate enough to attend the event this past weekend and see some of these murals in person. I also attended the opening reception, where a live art battle took place. During the battle, two teams of artists were given three words to base their theme on (and had 45 minutes to create something), with the winner selected by a panel of judges. During the reception I also had the opportunity to chat with J-Ryu, Angrywoebots, and Scribe about the murals, as well as their upcoming shows.

The main strip of galleries for this event were all located on Broad street, where there are many other galleries as well who were not affiliated with this event. I have done beer/pub crawls before but this is the first gallery crawl…and I want to do more! I had my wife and 10 yr old artist nephew with me, who both really enjoyed the experience as well. Great job putting this all together Art Whino!

If you have a chance to make it to Richmond to check this out, I highly recommend it.
