Located just across the street from the Richmond Art Gallery, City Hall Galleria is an offsite exhibition space overseen by Richmond Art Gallery. As part of its outreach to the local community, City Hall Galleria primarily highlights artists from Richmond and/or artworks with a close connection to Richmond in terms of themes and subject matter. City Hall Galleria does annual open calls and accepts submissions throughout the year.
Comprising two major walls, City Hall Galleria primarily showcases framed or ready-to-hang two-dimensional artworks. There is also a 32” flat screen TV where videos can be displayed. Images of the space and measurements of the walls are available here.
Next deadline: September 22, 2023 for 2024 programming
