The Kiernan Gallery presents photographer Matt Licari, who
will open the doors to his studio at Plant Zero in Richmond, Virginia for a
salon and fundraiser event. A talented photographer, Licari unfortunately lost
nearly all of his equipment in a robbery earlier this year.
For one night, The Kiernan Gallery transforms Licari’s
studio into an alternative gallery space to display his work. We invite the
central Virginia arts community to join us for a night of great photography, fantastic
food and drink, and exciting rewards.
A silent auction will be held from 7:00 – 9:00 PM
See the framed images and buy raffle tickets in advance below.
Donors will have the opportunity for Licari to take their portrait on a white backdrop. All portraits will photographed, printed, and signed during the event.
Licari’s self-published book Ride will be available for purchase on this page and in his studio. Any book orders placed at the event will include an on-site portrait.
