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.


The Artists’ Alliance (AA) is pleased to welcome oil painter Marcia Chaves, a native of Fredericksburg, as a new member. 


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.

"Pleasure Island"



The Artists’ Alliance Gallery at Jarrett Thor Fine Arts will be open to the public this weekend, Friday July 24 and Saturday, July 25, from 11-4 both days.

This is the first time we are opening our doors since the pandemic, and this is being done on a trial basis. We have a terrific show up on the walls; featured oil paintings from Marcia Chaves (Seasons of Inspiration) and painting, photography, basketry, jewelry, furniture, and pottery

from the Alliance members.
