A PLACE FOR ARTISTS
The Artists' Alliance is made up
of a group of artists from around
the area who are working to expand
the legacy of Jarrett Thor Fine Arts
by providing a diverse array of art
to the community of Colonial Beach.
MARCIA CHAVES - New Artist
The Artists’ Alliance (AA) is pleased to welcome oil painter Marcia Chaves, a native of Fredericksburg, as a new member. She will be the featured artist in March.
Marcia’s recent paintings have been inspired by her early years of summer months at Mt. Moriah farm in King George, and in Colonial Beach; roaming the shore for shark’s teeth, shells, and driftwood among the pebbles. Her images are done in oil, a method of slow paint that incorporates multi-layered, heavy application of color and glazes, resulting in textured surfaces that reflect the rough feel of sand and shell.
MULTIPLE ARTIST EXHIBIT
The Artists’ Alliance (AA) at Jarrett Thor Fine Arts is presenting Valentine and seasonally themed works from the membership this month. This includes a combined featured display of works from the membership, as well as the regular displays of member artwork.
