There is always new art gracing the walls of the Brock Gallery! Here you will find the best that local and regional artists have to offer. Each month a new exhibition theme will take you into the minds of the artists and how they interpret the world around them.
While you visit, pick up our self-guided Art Talk to help you and your friends as you view and assess the art.
Changing monthly themes guarantee that you'll find fresh and new eye candy each time you visit!
Once the pandemic allows, plan to attend our First Friday opening receptions. You'll meet and chat with artists, listen to the juror and get the insider's experience of art in Virginia Beach.
Use the exhibition calendar below to plan your First Fridays for the rest of the year!

FABULOUS FORGERIES February 5 - 28 Is the art a copy of a Masterpiece or a new creation in the same style? Perhaps it’s a copy with a twist that surprises or amuses. See which great Masters our artists choose.
BELIEVE, DREAM, INSPIREMarch 5 - 28 Come see what inspires our artists, what they dream of. You may find similarities or fascinating differences from your own. Elementary students will also interpret this theme and their art will hang beside the adults.
