Local nonprofit RVA Thriving Artists sponsors several programs to help support underserved and emerging artists in the River City — including giving some artists an early opportunity to display and sell their work.

The Community Bridge Project gives artists a three-month gallery exhibit at Art Works in Manchester at no cost. They also have their work promoted by the gallery and gain experience in curating, hanging, and pricing pieces.

Right now, you can see watercolors by Asia Anderson on display at the gallery through Aug. 31.

Applications are open to artists from around Virginia for the next two Bridge Project exhibits in the fall and winter.
