Richard Stravitz opened the Sculpture and Fine Art Gallery on Laskin Road in 2008 with a vision to bring a unique aspect of fine art to Virginia Beach: bronze sculpture. Now, his gallery has grown to represent numerous local and international artists and still holds onto its unique aspect of sculpture.  Richard Stravitz's sculpture studio is also housed in the gallery on Laskin Road. Visitors that come during the day will most likely run into Richard, and can go into his studio to talk to him about his latest projects. (He's always up for telling someone about the "lost wax" technique he uses!)  In addition to fine art, the Stravitz Gallery on Laskin has recently begun selling beautiful jewelry and art glass.

      The Stravitz Sculpture & Fine Art Gallery on 30th St. opened in 2011 with a vision to extend more fine art representation to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. The gallery represents mainly local artists and houses a collection of fine art and sculpture that will elevate the decor of every home and office.  In addition to fine art, the Stravitz Gallery on 30th Street & Pacific Avenue features beautiful jewelry, hand carved, unique wooden driftwood art, pottery, glass and more.  A native of Manhasset, Long Island, Richard Stravitz, a former Marine and retired Chairman of Boars Head Provisions in Brooklyn, New York, always made time to explore his growing interest in art, painting, and sculpture in his spare time.  Richard Stravitz took early retirement in 1990 to pursue his lifelong love of art and sculpting full-time. Now, he has the joy of devoting himself to creating marvelous bronze sculptures and working with the fun staff at both of his galleries.
