Join Kyo Gallery’s official reopening this October 20th, 2022 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM!
The struggles and successes during this era of great tumult have highlighted both the inherent weaknesses and strengths in all our communities. Peace, safety, social equity and justice, even progress itself continues to be elusive… yet still achievable. This show will feature art and artists that will weave imagery and narrative through the lens of this new normal, an introspective journey into not just what we’ve suffered, but what we can achieve when we come together.
Masks recommended due to capacity, snacks and refreshments will be Covid-safe and individually packaged for your safety.
Featuring May Britton, Gail S. Kotel, Debra Wright and special works from Gregory Hein and Alonzo Davis with Greig Leach’s solo presentation: “20/20”. This exhibition will be open to the public from October 20th, 2022 to January 8th, 2023.

He is a past Fellow of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. His work graces many private homes, corporate offices and restaurants bringing joy, color and beauty to all who see his creations. His cycling art grows out of a passion for the sport that includes racing as an amateur and the ongoing joy of a long day out on the bike. You will find two different books offered here of his cycling art. Leach’s art education has been continually developed in the studio with formal studies at the Corcoran Museum’s School of Art in Washington, DC, Montgomery College in Rockville, MD and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. He and his wife, actor/writer Bridget Gethins share their turn of the century home in Richmond with two dogs and one deaf cat, all mutts and all rescued from the streets.. Their two sons, Austin and Kerrigan, have moved on, both having lived in New York City but now make their homes in Richmond, VA and Boulder, CO. Visit Greig Leach’s entire Kyo catalogue.
