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 on Fridays and Saturdays in August. The dates are August 7 & 8, August 14 & 15, August 21 & 22, and  August 29 & 30. The hours are 11am - 4pm each day.

For the first half of the month you can still see the featured oil paintings of Marsha Chaves (Seasons of Inspiration). The last half of the month will feature an all member exhibit, Creative Restrictions, to include art work made by our members during the period of home restrictions due to the pandemic. We also have a terrific show up of members' art, including painting, photography, basketry, jewelry, furniture and pottery.

The last few months have been difficult. Come out and let some beauty into your lives.T
