Town Center City Club Art Show and Sale

It’s summer time (or at least it feels like it outdoors!) so that means it’s time for wonderful art show and sale.  I’ve had paintings on display at the Town Center City Club for a while now.   It’s a lovely private club for business professionals in Virginia Beach.  It is one of the premier venues for business meetings, corporate vents, fundraisers, weddings, retirements and other special events. 

Come out and join me on Friday, June 28 at 6:00pm for champagne and desserts.  It’s a great opportunity to see the Town Center City Club and take in (or take home) some of my latest paintings.  Rumor has it, I’ll be doing some painting during our time there.

If you were unable to attend the showing last night, contact me for an appointment.  We can schedule a time for you to see the paintings after regular business hours or on the weekend.

Art Show at East Wall Gallery in Virginia Beach

I try to be selective in where I show my paintings.  There is a balance between being seen and giving collectors buying opportunities.  Art is best in someone’s home or office where it is often enjoyed.  The folks at Bishopsgate Design and Decor contacted me to join in their new East Wall Gallery.  At home among the select items for the home and office, my paintings may add something special in this unique venue.

Will you come by for the opening in Virginia Beach?  Here’s the info:

WHEN:  Wednesday, September 3, 2014

TIME:  6-9 PM

WHERE:  East Wall Gallery  (Inside Bishopsgate Design and Deocr)
3259 Virginia Beach Blvd., Virginia Beach (map/directions)

I”m not sure how long the show will run, but I’ll let you know.  Stay tuned to my Facebook Page to see more of the paintings I’ll be showing at the East Wall Gallery in Virginia Beach
