RTown Studio + Showroom Opens in Historic Grapevine Owner / Artist Rachel Townsend Plans to Feature New Artist Exhibitions Each Month
GRAPEVINE, TEXAS – (May 2, 2022) – RTown Studio + Showroom held a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27, at the Grapevine Foundry, 701 S. Main St. #102 in Grapevine, Texas—making it the newest art venue along Historic Downtown Main Street.
RTown showcases a colorful, abstract, contemporary body of work by Rachel Townsend, a 26-year-old mixed media artist from Grapevine, and is a play on Townsend’s name and the phrase “our town” to reflect a supportive arts community.
Townsend will offer art classes and programs in the studio, located on the second level of the showroom, as well as exhibition opportunities for the independent and emerging artist. This month, RTown will feature the work of Grapevine resident Jenni Allen and host a gallery arts reception for her collection, “Dances on Canvas,” Thursday, May 5, from 6–9 p.m. The work will be on display for the month of May.
Townsend said she also plans to host interactive art experiences for the public during the city’s 38th Annual Main Street Fest – Where Fun Comes to Play, presented by Bank of the West, May 20–22.
Showroom hours are 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Saturday.
