David A. Douglas - Works at Gallery

 

Gallery Space at 536 Craghead Street in River District:

Beginning in November 2020, the 536 Craghead Street Gallery will present two DMFAH fine arts exhibitions in Danville’s River District, to complement the Museums regular programing at its Main Street facility. 

Rick Barker Properties has recently restored the Venable Building’s (c. 1899) commercial storefront at 536 Craghead Street. Before this space is made available for lease, it is being offered as a gallery space featuring a solo exhibition by David A. Douglas in November 2020. The DMFAH’s Craghead Street Storefront Gallery will present two fine art exhibitions in collaboration with the museum to promote the visual arts in Danville, Virginia. This collaboration is consistent with the artistic rhythm of The 500 Block, a development project focusing on the restoration of eight antique commercial buildings. 

Reverend Venable, the building’s first tenant and eventual owner, was a black minister who operated a restaurant on the ground floor and resided on the second floor. The upcoming art exhibitions will bring activity to the building, not seen in decades. 

The museum’s November opening will offer large-scale photographs by David A. Douglas. This exhibition will be curated for the unique 536 Craghead Gallery space. This show will be followed by a Spring show featuring Tim Duffy photographs. Duffy’s black and white portraits of regional blues musicians are currently displayed at The Garage- Artisian Smoked Meats, also in The 500 Block.
