“The Gift of Trees” Exhibition

Over the course of history, the depiction of trees has been a recurring theme in art, transcending the boundaries of time and evolving through various artistic techniques. Despite the diverse approaches employed by artists over the centuries, the allure of the tree as a subject endures. Let’s explore the profound fascination that people have with this natural wonder.

“Ode to Richmond” Exhibition

This unique show draws inspiration from the eloquent poem “Ode to Richmond” penned by Roscoe Burnem, RVA’s esteemed First Poet Laureate of 2021. We eagerly anticipate the diverse and creative expressions that will emerge as artists explore and interpret the essence of Richmond through their artistic lenses. Read more at

The goal of Encorepreneur! is to help us and our many “boomer” friends make their next business and personal accomplishments as successful, full of purpose and as fun as they have been in the past.
