The Kiernan Gallery Presents: Matt Licari

The Kiernan Gallery is pleased to announce that it will be hosting an in-studio exhibition of work by photographer Matt Licari. One of Licari’s images was the Juror’s Choice for the gallery’s inaugural show, Street Stories.

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.
