Reception for "Travels in France" This Sunday, Oct 30, 2016

The art show, "Travels in France," was hung 2 weeks ago.  It's a beautiful show that has gotten rave reviews!  6 paintings have sold by 5 different artists so far.  And we haven't even had the reception.  We have filled the empty spaces on the wall with more French paintings, so there is plenty to see and buy.  Initially, we couldn't hang all the paintings that we created, so as painting sells, we put another one in its place.  So the show is continually changing.

I hope you will come on Sunday, Oct 30 , from 5 to 8 pm.  It's at Cassatt's Cafe 
4536 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA.
If you can't make it to the reception, you can visit Cassatt's 
Monday - Friday : 8 am - 9 pm
Saturday:  9 am - 9 pm
Sunday:  9 am - 3 pm

The show will end on Sunday,November 13
so you have 2 more weeks to see it.

Travels in France: A Show of the Paintings of Our Trip to Limoux

Blue Door of Camon

Yesterday, we hung the show at Cassatt's.  The paintings we hung were a culmination of the work we did in France this summer.  I took a group of 10 artists and 3 non artists over to France.  We spent several days in Paris touring the city and eating great French food.  Then we took the train down to Montfalcon.  We traveled each day to a small town, vineyard or a canal to paint our hearts out.  We had a fabulous time and ate wonderful French food.  After we came home, we finished up work and framed our pieces for this wonderful show.

I hope you will go and see the show.  It's at Cassatt's Cafe,  4536 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA.  It's open from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday.  Saturday it is open from 9 am- 8pm and Sunday, it's open from 9 am to 3 pm.

The show will hang from Sunday Oct. 16 until Sunday, November 13,2016.

There will be a reception where you can meet all of the artists on Sunday, October 30 from 5 to 8 pm.
Hope you can make it and see all the beautiful art that we did.

Morning Light on Key Bridge
by Jane McElvany Coonce

For a third year in a row, the Arlington Artists Alliance is having its annual fundraiser  this coming Friday, Oct 7 from 6 to 8 pm at the Gallery Underground in Crystal City.  This year, I painted "Morning Light on Key Bridge" especially for the event.  The fundraiser called Artrageous is a silent art auction and over 75 paintings will be in the show. There will be paintings, sculptures, jewelry, ceramics and some other fun items including my brother's beach house for a weekend.

The show will be hung on Monday, Oct 3, and you can preview the work from Oct 3 through the 7th.
The art auction admission is free, and it's a way to acquire art at a very reasonable price.  I hope everyone will come for a fun evening of food, beverage, music and of course, ART!

I will be there and would love to party with you.  So put it on your calendar and come this Friday.
Parking is free in the garage on 20th St between Rt. 1 and Crystal Drive.

Drop by next week at Gallery Underground for an in-person preview of all the great art to be auctioned, on view from October 3-7, 10am-6pm.  Or view artwork you can bid on at:
