Flat Street Gallery was born!

VCP was founded in 1998 by Eric Slayton, a local photographer who sought space to create his own photographic work and have a functioning b/w darkroom. Eric was known to bring his pet red-tailed hawk "Gus" in the studio to keep him company while he worked. The space was originally known as "Flat Street Gallery".
