Interested in looking at some spectacular local art? Perfect for holiday shopping? Come on out and see the Loudoun Sketch Club show in Round Hill next month! You can see my painting Glade Creek Grist Mill in person.! Art is timeless and can be passed down through the generations!





The 78th Annual Show and Sale of the Loudoun Sketch Club, Loudoun County’s oldest arts organization, will open November 1st at the Franklin Park Arts Center. “Showing Off! will be a wonderful display of local plein-air and studio works.

“While “sketch” is in our name, member artists work in oil, pastel, watercolor, mixed-media and even sculpture,” explains Club President Pat Whittle. “And, since this is our first large public show in three years, a spectacular selection of art will be on display.”


Opening Reception
Franklin Park Arts Center
36441 Blueridge View Lane Purcellville
Friday, November 4th, 5pm - 8pm.


In addition to having the opportunity to meet the artists, guests will be able to purchase a work of art, vote for their favorite work, and enjoy light refreshment while browsing the show. A Closing Reception is scheduled for Sunday, November 13th from 4pm - 5:30pm.

“Showing Off!” Runs from November 1st - November 13th in the main gallery of the Franklin Park Arts Center located at 36441 Blueridge View Lane Purcellville, open from 9am - 5pm Monday - Friday. The gallery will also be open some evenings when a performance is scheduled.

The show will also be available to be viewed online at the LSC’s website https://loudounsketchclub.com/. The
show page will go live beginning Nov 1st and we will update this listing with the direct live link on that date.

Please check the FPAC website (https://www.franklinparkartscenter.org) for the latest performance and hours of operation information, which may change due to COVID impacts.

I saw a painting on Dawn’s page of a sunset over the Ocean City, MD bay called “Sunset” and inquired about it. Dawn let me know it was for sale. I was happy to purchase it. It’s very pretty and brings back memories of summers spent in Ocean City as a child. I’d recommend her paintings as gifts (as I initially intended this to be) or for yourself (as this painting may end up being if I can’t part with it 😉).
