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 is held yearly in the fall.
CURRENT emphasizes accessible opportunities to collect art and features 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 September 29 - October 1 at the Main Street Station in Richmond, Virginia. A VIP Preview Party will be held on Thursday evening, September 28, 2017. Tickets for the VIP Preview party and Patron Level Tickets will go on sale August 20th and are available through sponsorships and at the door.
