VIP Reception for Teeny Tiny Trifecta 2

POSTED ON 8.14.2019

Last year's First Friday Opening Reception for our inaugural Teeny Tiny Trifecta exhibition saw unprecedented crowds at SSG. In fact, things got a little chaotic at times - so this year we're trying something new!

On Thursday, September 5, we are teaming up with our exhibition sponsor, Gardy Bloemers, Vice President, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, for a special ticketed VIP reception.

Attendance will be limited to 100 people and artwork will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. This will be your first chance to purchase artwork from Teeny Tiny Trifecta 2!

Tickets cost $35 per person for the VIP Reception. A limited number of $25 tickets will be available to the first 25 people to buy tickets. Tickets can be found HERE.

Teeny Tiny Trifecta 2: First Friday Opening Reception

POSTED ON 8.14.2019

Join Second Street Gallery for the highly anticipated opening of Teeny Tiny Trifecta 2. This juried group show will kick off the Gallery’s 46th season. The exhibition will open to the public at 5:30pm on Friday, September 6th and will remain on view through September 27, 2019 in the Dové Gallery.

The show will consist of a collection of three works of art, all measuring 9 inches or smaller, from a carefully curated selection of artists. Inspired by both Cabinets of Curiosities as well as the Paris Salons of the 19th Century, but with a modern twist, the exhibition aims to showcase the wide range of talented artists in Virginia (and beyond!) while providing an accessible introduction to contemporary art collecting. All work will be priced at $100, so this is a great opportunity for collectors of all budgets to collect a work of art by some of their favorite artists.

“Lady Painters” in UVA Today

POSTED ON 7.24.2019

Check out SSG's latest feature in UVA Today HERE!

“When you think of a painter like Joan Mitchell, you’ll only see [her] in places like the [Museum of Modern Art], the Tate [Modern gallery in London] or the [Virginia Museum of Fine Arts], but you don’t expect to walk into your local gallery off the Downtown Mall and have the opportunity to see an artist like this.” - Executive Director & Chief Curator Kristen Chiacchia, on the significance of the works on loan from the Fralin Museum of UVA.

Special thank you to UVA Today, Ryann Sheehy, the Fralin Museum of UVA, and the late alumnus Alan Groh.
