We are excited to invite you to Reid Street Gallery in charming Chatham, located conveniently between Danville and Lynchburg in Southside Virginia. Housed in a renovated former farm supply warehouse, Reid Street Gallery showcases art against preserved historic architectural elements, highlighted by innovative lighting, high-tech security, and the latest audio/visual systems. The Gallery opened in 2016, representing local and regional artists and quickly became a cultural center for the community. In 2017-18, we expanded into additional space in the building, adding a gift shop and cafe.
Much like the town itself, Reid Street Gallery is an unexpected but rich resource in the art community. Chatham has been the starting point for many nationally acclaimed talents in the fields of politics, entertainment, and the arts. In that spirit, we are a resource for serious collectors throughout the region and, via the internet, areas beyond. The Gallery represents more than forty artists and offers an always-changing selection of original artwork, including incredible graphite drawings, oil and watercolors, pottery and sculpture. Several artists also accept commissions for an extra special gift.
Reid Street Gallery offers artists the exposure and support necessary to reach discriminating collectors and anyone with an appreciation for fine art. With an aggressively updated and maintained website, frequent and well-publicized openings and events, and an open line of communication, Reid Street Gallery is also a resource for artists, and we are always looking for new artists.
Our gift shop is a great place to pick up a gift for a birthday, hostess, holiday, or other special occasion. Items include gadgets and tools for the kitchen or cook, original artwork, men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, local honey and natural products, and jewelry. There is something for every budget!
Reid Street Academy teaches artists of all levels, with classes for the hobbyist or for the serious artist, offering art classes for adults and children at a variety of skill levels. Art After School and summer camps offer local students opportunities to explore the various media of art, and specialty classes are geared toward adults interested in trying new techniques.
Chef’s Palette, our cooking school, offers classes of all types, for every skill level, in an absolutely beautiful and fun setting. Our full class schedule offers something to interest everyone, from beginners to expert chefs, including basic kitchen skills to culinary artistry.
