per month
For just $1.00 a month we will send you at least 25 digital hugs a day for all the awesomeness you share by helping us out. Don't worry, they won't clog your inbox, just hold your cell phone up in the wind or stand a bit closer to the microwave next time you're warming up your lunch, you'll feel the love.

In addition, your name will be included in our Patrons section of our newsletter each month. That's a lot of people seeing how impressive you are at supporting the arts!  

Weekly Brain Debris + Swag!

per month
For $5.00 a month you will be given access to our members-only message we like to call Weekly Brain Debris. Each Friday, Ryan and Garreth will have a new message they leave that will include anything from a funny story, a random insight, book suggestions or anything else that might sound at home for the podcast. You can listen to it as many times as you want, and you are free to send in any insights or ideas that their message brings to mind!

Members at this tier will be sent a welcome pack of Shockoe Artspace swag when they join. $5.00 members receive all benefits from lower tiers as well. 

Calls from Ken Gilbertson

For $10.00 a month you will have access to member-only recordings of Calls from Ken Gilbertson every Wednesday. Ken is an active artist and is constantly needing information, materials and advice. You will have access to the calls he makes to art stores trying to get the answers he needs. If you have heard him on the podcast, then you have a general idea of how smoothly these calls go. 

Members at this tier can also suggest art stores that Ken might be able to call to get the information he needs. $10.00 members receive all benefits from lower tiers as well.

About Shockoe Artspace

In 2011 we started Shockoe Artspace to support artists in every way possible - not just by showing their work, but also by developing deep relationships as they navigated their careers.

By 2016 we established Shockoe Artspace as a 501c3 nonprofit and began to plan out what the next phase of the gallery would look like.

Since the beginning we have focused on expansive exhibitions from locally and nationally acclaimed artists. Now we want to leverage this success to help art and design flourish through new programs that benefit everyone – artists, patrons and the community at large.

Our podcast, Shockoe Artspeak, is one program we have recently launched to help develop the communities and careers of artists and designers. We (currently) release two episodes every month between August and May. Shockoe Artspeak is artist-run, volunteer-led, and only exists through the generosity of its donors and listeners. We would love your support as we build more content, develop new shows and have a great time talking about art and design with artists and designers.

When we reach $1500 per month, we will begin filming our podcast and releasing it as a video to select tiers of our patrons.
