As many of you know I, Jenni Kirby, am the owner of Crossroads Art Center. You also already know that since 2002, Crossroads Art Center has been showcasing emerging and established artists in our 25,000 square foot exhibition space.
I am pleased today to share with you a new online venture that I will launch with my business partner Cathy Fallin, former owner of Commonwealth Kinko's in Richmond, - buyRVAart. BuyRVAart will be the website for people living in the Richmond VA Area (RVA), to discover everything that is Art. BuyRVAart will be the only website in Richmond that focuses on both the Visual and Performing Arts.
www.buyRVAart.com will welcome all fine art artists, galleries, and cultural institutions who want to advertise their art and/or organization. BuyRVAart will be the #1 website for designers and people who want to collect fine art from artists, galleries, and cultural institutions. We will be the website that they go to for art classes, interior designers, framers, art suppliers, clothing designers, art studios, decorative art, edible art, and floral art. Yes, you will be able to shop local artists and galleries from your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. You will be able to find all the art classes in RVA in one place. You will be able to find a designer that can transform your house into a home. All this and much more will be available on this website.
Artists and galleries on buyRVAart will benefit from increased exposure to the people who buy art - collectors, designers, institutions and of course, the art lover. Research for 2014 shows that 71% of people surveyed who purchased art in 2014 - purchased it online. We expect this trend to continue. And buyRVAart wants those buyers purchasing art from the talented artists of Richmond, VA.
We will welcome all Performing Artists and Performing Arts Venues
to promote their art and performances. BuyRVAart will be the #1 website to find performance artists, classes, and see what is happening at all the Performing Arts Venues in RVA. You can find dancers, poets, storytellers, film makers, actors, musicians, bands, jugglers, and comedians all in one place as well as dance and ballet companies, theater groups, theater venues, organizations who teach dance, film companies and more.
HOW CAN YOU HELP SPREAD THE WORD?

We truly believe in the saying "it takes a village/city" so, thank you for helping us spread the word and for joining in the creation of this wonderful website for Richmond!
