what is mist Gallery?
Mist Gallery is an online art space that features exhibitions of fresh and innovative work by emerging artists. Our mission is to establish a platform for young artists to showcase their craft, and to commit to presenting a body of work that is unique and exceptional in form, thought and process. Each month Mist Gallery selects a new group of work to be displayed for a month long exhibition. By showcasing work through an online platform as opposed to a traditional brick and mortar setting, we hope to help artists establish a stronger online presence and expose their portfolios to new eyes.
meet the founders
Lizzy Servito and Nastassja Swift founded Mist Gallery in the summer of 2014. After having separate experiences working with galleries around Richmond, they were inspired to work together to organize their own exhibitions, and thus, Mist Gallery was born. Currently, Lizzy and Nastassja coordinate Mist Gallery through their computer screens, as Nastassja Swift resides in Doha, Qatar and Lizzy in Richmond, Virginia.
