Cadence Partners with VisArts

0 Comments 07 November 2017







Cadence Theatre Company is pleased to be a community partner of the Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s 53rd annual contemporary craft show, Craft + Design, presented by Altria Group. This year, the show, which takes place Nov. 17-19, moves to a new location—historic Main Street Station’s newly renovated train shed—and doubles the number of participating artists.

More than 130 artists will exhibit at Craft + Design. Be sure to check out jewelry artists Laura Wood and Meghan Riley, sculptor Evan Chambers and wood artists Alicia Dietz and David Bohnhoff. 2016 award winners Ashley Buchanan, Sean Donlon, Andrea Donnelly, Daniel Rickey, Caitie Sellers, and Wendy Stevens are returning. Ignatius Creegan, a longtime Richmond favorite, is also back this year.

This year’s featured artist is North Carolina-based jewelry artist Tara Locklear. She uses recycled skateboards, cast cement and Durat, a post-consumer countertop plastic, in her work and has exhibited at contemporary craft shows sponsored by the American Craft Council, the Smithsonian Museums and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Cadence Theatre Company members get a 25 percent discount on Craft + Design tickets when they use the promo code CADENCECD17. The discount is good on Patrons’ Preview Party tickets, Rise + Shine tickets, general admission tickets and weekend passes.

Craft + Design kicks off with its McKinnon and Harris Patrons’ Preview Party on Friday night from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $55 and include drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the chance to shop early. Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and Belle Isle Craft Spirits will be on site, serving up tried-and-trues like Gingerbread Stout and his and hers specialty cocktails. Enjoy bluegrass music by South Hill Banks. The band recently took home the FloydFest Music Festival’s 2017 “On the Rise” Award. When the party winds down, head over to Shockoe Atelier for the after party, hosted by Craft + Design’s local makers and VisArts’ young professionals board.

The Rise + Shine Breakfast runs from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Saturday and a ticket includes mimosas and bloody Marys, a light breakfast and another chance to get into Craft + Design ahead of the crowds. Doors open to Cadence Theatre Company members beginning at 9 a.m. Richmond magazine brings you interior designer Amanda Nisbet, who will give a talk on incorporating craft into your home and sign copies of her book, Dazzling Design. Tickets to Rise + Shine are $30.

General admission shopping hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and continue on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Those tickets are $10.

Want to come and go all weekend? A weekend pass includes access to Patrons’ Preview and Rise + Shine, unlimited re-entry during general admission shopping hours and free parking. Weekend passes are $80.

Valet parking is available Friday night. On Saturday and Sunday, park in the parking deck at the corner of 14th Street and Main Street, less than a one-block walk from the train station.
