Over the years, Andrea Orlosky took a circuitous route to finally arrive in Richmond in 2006. We aren’t sure where she first became inspired by art – whether it was when she was toddling along the Great Wall of China as a tot; hiding out in the secret passageways of Versailles or hollering from the parapet of a castle on the Rhein… maybe she was exploring the night sky with a telescope in the Mojave Desert when it finally clicked. However it happened, we are certainly glad it did, for she has become a passionate advocate for the arts ever since. Perhaps seeing so much beauty and mystery in the world led her down this path, or maybe all those crazy adventures gave her just the right amount of courage and sense of humor needed to start Art on Wheels.
After 18 long years exploring the masterpieces of the world, she took a break in Savannah, GA where in four short years she was a Suma Cum Laude graduate of the Savannah College of Art & Design, with a B.F.A in Illustration and a minor in Drawing. Not one to do anything half-heartedly, her excellent academic career speaks to her determination to succeed and the importance of art in her life. After graduation she worked as a Gallery Director for fine art galleries in Savannah, GA, Chicago, IL, and finally here in Richmond, VA. It didn’t take long for Art on Wheels to take shape in her brain, and after that it was only a matter of time before her and her husband Kevin started spreading the message of art for all people around the region.
