Happy December everyone! The holiday season has officially arrived, which means the days remaining to search for the perfect gift are crucial!


If you’re still trying to find gifts that will wow your friends and family, then you’re in luck! Yesterday we opened our Annual Small Works Exhibition, this exhibition celebrates the holiday season and small works of art that make the perfect gift.


This year’s Small Works exhibition features over 100 works of art by 27 different artists! Small Works is a collection of still lifes, figurative works, landscapes, and cityscapes, but each one is represented differently by each artist, no two works are the same. This way you’re guaranteed to find something for you or someone you know.


The Opening:

Yesterday’s opening was a great success and despite the unfortunate weather we had great attendance! We’re extremely grateful for everyone who ventured through the rain to see this year’s show and support the gallery, it means so much!

Guests and artists were able to escape the ugly weather and warm by the fire while sipping on hot apple cider or hot cocoa.

Bethanne Cople’s Painting Demonstration:

During the reception Alexandria-based artist, Bethanne Cople painted live in the gallery!


Bethanne painted a gorgeous, snow covered hillside and visitors were able to watch as it came to life!




Thank you Bethanne for a wonderful demonstration and creating such a beautiful painting!


Below are a few more photographs from the reception!
