If you haven’t viewed the Art in Windows exhibition in Richmond yet, you’re missing out. But you have time.

The exhibition featuring eight local artists at two city locations will remain on public display through May 22, said Alicia Gallo, interim executive director of the Richmond Main Street Initiative (RMSI).

This year, RMSI teamed with the NIAD Art Center on the Art in Windows program, which first launched 10 years ago.

Works from local artists Karin Turner, Sarah W. Chase, Robin Lopez and Elmarise Owens can be viewed through the windows at NIAD at 551 23rd St.

Meanwhile, works from NIAD artists Esmeralda Silva, Deatra Colbert, Eddie Braught and Mireya Betances can be viewed at RMSI’s offices at 1600 Nevin Plaza.

An opening virtual reception is planned for Thursday, May 13 at 6 p.m., during NIAD’s monthly Thirsty Thursday program. The first 25 ticket holders will receive a make-and-take art workshop kit that includes some of the materials that the 8 artists used to make their artwork. All of  the artists will talk about their art practices during the opening. Tickets are available here.
