New intern alert!

We got one!
Look how cute she it, completely patient with us (so far). Please help us welcome Nitza Cuevas to the Quirk team!

So Many New Things!

Just like everyone else, we're really excited about the beautiful cool weather we're finally having. It definitely feels like "back to school" time.

New work is rolling in this week including pieces by Jeanine Metzfield and Karen Shonk.
Also - We're getting ready for the First Friday kickoff this week and the second annual Inlight Richmond. Come out this Friday and see all the new shows opening.

School's Almost here

We're about to lose our Summer interns... but today they helped us model these delicious lunch bags from Blue Q. They had a little trouble deciding who got to hold which bag, but in the end it was all sorted out.

Dream Apartment

If there is one place in New York City that could make you feel completely at ease, it's in the home of Byron Wampler and Lawson Waring. With as much art as I've ever seen in one place, their apartment is filled floor to ceiling with reminders of Richmond.
It was fun to see all of the Quirk pieces and how they found a home with these amazing friends. Thanks for letting us stay at "the inn" and we'll see you in January!

Pepper's Here!

Our first day back in town and we are rewarded with a visit from our favorite lady, Pepper.

Last night to celebrate her/our arrival we went to the new restaurant, Balliceaux. This is our new favorite spot in Richmond (well... at least outside of Midtown!)

When the cat is away the penguins will play

With Katie and Diana off taking care of all the serious business, one would expect Hayley and Maggie to be up to no good. The tables have turned. It's our summer interns from the Indianapolis Zoo that have gone hay wire. Although I have asked them a billion times this week to make a blog post all they do is hog the phone and tweet.
Well at least they are taking some time to check our shows.

Ralph really enjoys Noah Scalin's Grid Skull and wishes it could come live at a zoo or garden.

While Livia and Tulla are hypnotized (and rightly so) by Elizabeth Kendall's exhibit in The Vault.

And we're off!

Katie and I are off to the big apple to score some new work for the shop. The biggest bonus of this trip is getting to spend some QT with our pals: Byron, Lawson, Joseph and Perry - in the big city.
Come into the gallery next week and visit Maggie and Hayley!

This Saturday...

This Saturday from 2pm to 4pm come enjoy a spot of tea while Noah gives a short talk and answers questions about the Skull-A-Day project.

This is the last scheduled event at Quirk Gallery before Noah's show: After Life closes.

My House

On the shop wall this month is a peep inside the fabulous world of our own Maggie Smith. Maggie's hand felted house plants have a warm, cuddly feel that make you want to bring them all home with you. Prices range from 100-$150

Check out these babies!

Jeffrey Vincent's hand sewn creatures are the perfect gift (for you or your pal.) Each one is different and holds it's own personality. Sometimes it's tough to choose just the right one!
Prices range from $25 - $45.

New Shows and Hoopla

We had a wonderful First Friday weekend. Elizabeth Kendall opened her show in the Vault. We liked her work in Birth of a Notion but WOW her vault exhibition is sweeping us off our feet. Noah Scalin's After Life: A Skull Exhibition continued with a kids art day this past Saturday. We also have a fresh shop show of Needle Felted plants by Maggie Smith.
