Our artists’ cooperative has formed to reopen JarretThor Fine Arts (JTFA). Gallery owners Carl and Joyce Thor were closing the gallery in an attempt to retire for the fourth time.
The cooperative, dubbed the Artists’ Alliance (AA) at JTFA, includes 20 top regional artists, and is directed by a team of three volunteers. Many different artistic media are featured, including painting (oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel), photography, pottery, encaustic, stained glass, and jewelry.
AA will hold a grand opening reception during Colonial Beach’s 2nd Friday Art Walk on July 13th, from 6-9pm. Painter Barbara Brennen is the featured artist. The gallery is located at 100 Taylor St., Suite 101, in Colonial Beach. The public is invited free of charge. For information call 804-224-7200, 804-224-6007, or 301-452-1333. The show runs until August 5. The gallery hours are 11am - 5pm, Thursday – Sunday.
