Gallery5 Turns One


That's 12 months of piqued curiosity; 10 issues of RVA Magazine; one night of painted, quivering nudes; endless hours of attaching paper to walls and ceiling; an old firetruck moving into and out of and into the gallery; quiet nights of acoustic music; loud nights spun out of local amps; a steady rotation of Richmond artists; a line down the street; gallons of fuel consumed by the poi-spinning Richmond City Burners; strange hats, skin art; and one sleepy director. Gallery5 and RVA honor the occasion with a night of music by The Gaskets, Hoots and Hellmouth, and CD releases by The Family Swaggards, and Prabir and The Substitutes. There's a Todd Raviotta film retrospective, four DJs and, of course, the beginning of another sleepless year, April 15 at 8 p.m. $5. 644-0005.
