2 new sources of commentary on Richmond’s First Friday’s Art Walk – one article from a member of Richmond Copwatch, and the audio from local journalist Kontra’s radio show on WRIR!

Wingnut L.J. Roberts currently has an art show at the Page Bond Gallery at 1625 West Main Street.

A bunch of us made it out on the opening night to see the textile art. It was pretty amazing.

Here are some pictures from the show, but it will be up until June 3rd, so go and see it for yourself!

Stephen looking at the huge knitted and quilted map of the Queer Houses of Brooklyn that L.J. made, with corresponding buttons for the houses!

We got a little fancy for the art opening.

Militant queer tapestries? We say hell yes!
