Part of a 6,200-square-foot building, the Aeon Gallery also features the tattoo studio Arkane Ink, eight working art and design studios and a late-night café and lounge.
Mochoruk, of Richmond, said the space, once a hotel in the late 1880s, continues to evolve. He’s also known for one of his works, “The Awakening of Eve,” being shown at the Louvre in Paris during Le Carrousel Du Louvre Art Expo 2016.
Mochoruk said he hopes to see the Aeon Gallery continue to expand.
“We’re just getting going,” he said. “We’re hoping to do between four and six shows a year.”
