Second Street Gallery, central Virginia's first artist run alternative art space, is one of the longest surviving nonprofit organizations in the country focused solely on the art and ideas of our time. Since its founding in 1973, SSG has served its surrounding community with continuous exhibition programming, and today is recognized as one of the leading nonprofit supporters of contemporary art in the Mid Atlantic region.

SSG is committed to offering Charlottesville and greater Virginia leading-edge contemporary art in perspective and to fostering an active and open appreciation of this art by directly engaging the issues surrounding work by regional and national artists.
