December's First Friday Happenings

The monthly First Friday art gallery openings at the Main Library are almost here again. Stop by Main Library this Friday from 7 to 9 pm for an event with writers and editors of Richmond Noir and of course a fabulous lineup of art exhibits. 
Richmond’s own Focus Group Camera Club will have an exhibit titled “Elements of Design” in the Gellman Room. The photographs and posters on display will illustrate compositions and perspectives that create effective images. The City Art Interpreters, a group of Richmond artists who in their early careers were influenced by graffiti, will have an exhibit called “Evolution of City Art” in the Dooley Foyer and Hall. Jim Kubicek’s “Into Darkness” will remain in the 2nd floor gallery for another month.

At 7 pm in the Davenport Special Collections Room, the Richmond Writers Series will continue with discussions by contributing authors and editors of Richmond Noir, a dark anthology comprised of 15 short stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location in Richmond. Authors Dennis Danvers, Laura Browder, and Hermine Pinson will read from their work and reveal their take on murder and betrayal in Richmond. Editors Andrew Blossom, Brian Castleberry, and Tom De Haven will discuss compiling and editing this exciting collection of locally-produced fiction.
