The mission of The CROSSROADS ART CENTER is to exhibit the work of emerging and established artists from the mid-Atlantic region; to promote public awareness and understanding of the concepts of all art forms; and to offer instruction and education in the visual arts. The Crossroads Art Center has served the Richmond, VA area as a Fine Art and Crafts Gallery for over 10 years. The art center represents over 225 local and regional artists in all types of media. Crossroads is actively involved in the Richmond local artists' community and thereby an important educational and cultural resource for the community. The art center's wide client-base includes private collectors, art consultants, corporate consultants, architects, interior designers as well as business, government and social VIPs. Our goal is to also continually strive to create an atmosphere conducive to creativity, beauty and the art of self-expression where visitors feel welcomed and at home. You can leisurely stroll around the center, view our art on display and watch our artists at work creating. We look forward to assisting you in purchasing an exceptional piece of art for your home, office or body.

Over 25,000 ft.² of Art by local artist. You can find just about any kind of art you would want from jewelry to sculpture to woodworking to painting in all media to collage to pottery to Stain Glass! And it's a great place to have a party or a business meeting

We go to Crossroads several times a year, take in the big events like the monthly shows as well as to walk around during less crowded times to see what is new! Wide variety of art from textiles through carpentry/sculpture and of course every painting technique (plus a few new inventions) to see and buy!

There's always something to enjoy at Crossroads. It's a place I always forget about, but slap my head and say, "I should just go to Crossroads" when looking for art, gifts, cards and more. The staff is helpful and the location is perfect. Plus, it's a one-stop-shop for a variety of decorative arts with varying price points. Wish I had... More

A perfect spot to wander through on a lazy afternoon or a chic bustling night when they hold their Open House. Several artists and mediums as well as studio space and creative classes! A real bonus is joining one of their travel events...whatever you chose, bringing home something beautiful is guaranteed.
