Amanda Robinson is stepping down from her duties at Gallery 5. Here’s what she had to say…
I would like to thank you all for your love and support these past years. After close to a decade of curating and coordinating exhibitions at Gallery5, June will sadly be my last month. My love for Gallery5 has been proven since 2005, but as many of you know, it is time for me to be my own artist and continue on the path that I have been creating throughout the past 3 years. I have had the #1 most amazing experience one could imagine from my time with Gallery5. I was given the golden opportunity to found and direct an ever-growing arts catalyst, which broke through molds and ideals set on a Richmond gallery, as well as create a large number of exhibits that have helped to spur so many new ideas and organizations within our city.
I feel privileged to witness countless emerging artists grow to new heights and mostly having been able to meet some of the most genuine, and quite simply, MOST AMAZING PEOPLE on the planet who have given both myself and Gallery5 more support than I could ever ask. I look forward to supporting this organization as an audience member and donor and hope that you all will also continue to show your love and support for a place that truly serves as a major catalyst for creative minds in Richmond.
This post is dedicated to a large handful of exhibitions that have taken place at Gallery5 since 2005. I hope that you can show your support and come say hi at our April 5th First Friday opening, featuring an enormous talent, Elena Lourenco. Also, for May we are proud to bring back Charlottesville artist, Dave Moore and local artist Matt Flowers and June, my own husband, Bizhan Khodabandeh, will curate the U.S and Chinese Typographic Poster Exchange. See you April 5th!
— Thank you for the Memories
