The cycling isn’t all on the road in Richmond for the Worlds. The Gallery at UNOS is hosting Bike 2015: Richmond Wheels, an exhibition featuring cycling art by three nationally known artists based in the city: Andras Bality, Matt Lively and Greig Leach.
Andras Bality uses a plein air approach to his oils of colourful townscapes, landscapes and seascapes.
Matt Lively is known for his Beecycle paintings and other unique images that suggest a story without a beginning or an end.
Greig Leach is the official artist of 2015 UCI Road Race World Championships and author of The Art of Cycling: Art of 101st Tour de France. You can watch him paint during the World Championships at Fan Fest in the Richmond Convention Centre. Many of the pieces will subsequently be displayed at The Gallery at UNOS. (Swot up on him by reading our interview with him from last year.)
The exhibition is open until 31 October; gallery hours are Mon-Fri 8am-5pm; open until 7pm on Sept 25th and a special weekend opening from 11am-7pm on Sept 26th-27th. The Gallery at UNOS is located at 700 N. 4th Street, Richmond.
The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) is dedicated to increasing awareness of lifesaving organ transplants and organ donations. The Gallery at UNOS regularly features artwork by local Virginian artists and those directly touched by donation and transplantation. All the artwork on display is available to buy with 20% of sales supporting UNOS.
