A new contemporary art gallery, Alexander/Heath Contemporary, LLC opened in March in the West End of Downtown. The gallery is located at 425 Campbell Avenue at the corner of Fifth Street and is part of the “Flats on Fifth” complex. The gallery focuses on solo exhibitions initially, running for five to six weeks. They plan to mix in community minded events such as an “Appalachian Thru-Hiker Convo” in early June. The gallery partners are avid art collectors. “We will try to bring artists to Roanoke that are worth collecting.” concludes Hettig. “It is a great opportunity to enjoy art and also have it appreciate in value.”
