Help Ken Relaunch Hatchback Gallery

Tax deductible
A few months ago, the team at Shockoe Artspace had the privilege of getting to know Ken Gilbertson. Ken is an unconventional artist who you will never forget once you have met him. He has a way of sticking in your mind. 

Ken grew up and spent most of his life in California where he developed a love for painting and a flair for individuality. At some point in the past, (Ken can't even remember) he decided to open his own gallery. Through ingenuity and sheer determination, he did just that. And he did it in the back of a white 1991 Honda Civic hatchback that he calls Hatchback Gallery. 

This gallery on wheels is a part of a lifestyle of art and design that Ken cannot separate from who he is. But after relocating to the East Coast, he thinks it is time to spruce things up. Ken wants Hatchback Gallery to be the best it can be, but he needs some help. 

Shockoe Artspace has partnered with Ken and Hatchback Gallery to help him raise the funds to make a few improvements to the gallery including outfitting the back of the gallery with museum-grade walls, flooring and lighting. We are raising money to do just that. Please help us keep Hatchback Gallery for many years to come, and drop a note of encouragement to Ken. He loves his gallery and we want more people to be able to say the same thing.

Feel free to check out Hatchback Gallery's current website at, and thank you for your support!
