Join in the celebration 🎉
Following their core belief in innovation, creativity + community, the brewery is celebrating the expansion with Richmond’s art community tomorrow, Fri., Sept. 30.
Through a partnership with CultureWorks, this will be the official launch of artoberVA, a month-long celebration of Richmond’s vibrant art + culture. Guests can try the brewery’s latest release, Stipple, and interact with local muralists at a Meet and Greet.
Expansion details 🍻
Drop in for a beer, stay for lunch or dinner. Three Notch’d Brewing’s Richmond location acquired the former wine shop on Broad Street and the pizza kitchen next door, giving the brewery room to expand their taproom into a brewpub and launch an exciting new food menu. The menu will be full of creative and share-worthy pizza pies (including gluten and vegan options), sandwiches, soups, salads, and more. Food items borrow from the craft kitchen expertise gained at their other locations, while bringing something new to compliment the innovative, locally-made beer the brewery is known for.
Coming in early 2023, the space will also house Three Notch’d Distilling Co., which the brewery plans to use to expand their craft cocktail program (read: signature cocktails with house-made spirits).
Can’t wait? Neither can we. Before you head to the brewery, get to know the five muralists and the details on their work, vibes + inspirations. 🎨
Meet the muralists
Here are the five Virginia-based muralists who will bring the festival to life:
Nico Cathcart is an experienced mural painter from Toronto, Ontario, currently living in Richmond. She strives to discuss Intersectionality and climate change in her highly-colorful, realistic works which often include local flora and fauna, and have been featured across the country.
Dathan Kane is a contemporary abstract painter and muralist currently based in Hampton Roads. The theme of his work focuses on the constant duality of life’s choices. He is known for using bold, organic black + white shapes.
Wingchow is a muralist and fine artist based in Richmond. Her work can easily be recognized by her bubbly abstract forms. She pulls inspiration from color and nature, and is known for fun pieces that brighten the spaces around them and bring a positive vibe.
Humble started his career in Richmond, focusing on painting aspects of his life across the East and West Coast. Humble is preparing for his first solo show in NYC and has worked with established organizations and mural projects across the US.
Prentice Carroll was born in Maryland, raised in the tidewater area of Virginia, and is now based in Richmond. He started as a graffiti writer, then later focused on paintings and graphic design.
