Hello! Exciting news this month! Read all about it!
Barns of Rose Hill Exhibition
My Barns of Shenandoah series will be exhibited in April at the Barns of Rose Hill in Berryville, VA. The opening reception is Friday, April 6, starting at 7:00 pm, and the show runs from April 6 to 28, 2018. It would be an honor to see you there! I really appreciate your support for my barns series, and this month I will have several new pieces. There will also be a bluegrass concert, featuring Buds Collective with BBQ and beer, starting at 8:00 pm. You can attend my opening reception for free, and then go upstairs to enjoy the music and BBQ afterwards if you like. Tickets for the music event are available at http://barnsofrosehill.org/event/bluegrass-bbq-series-featuring-buds-collective-sally-veach-exhibit-opening/. I will not be giving an artist's talk this time but am happy to talk individually with folks about my art, and the inspiration and creative process.
Glave Kocen Gallery
The second exciting item is my upcoming representation at Glave Kocen Gallery in Richmond Virginia! Jennifer Glave, her husband BJ Kocen, and I are very excited about this new partnership that is only just in its early stages. I will be commencing a new body of work soon that will be destined for Glave Kocen, so look for more news this Spring and Summer regarding my contribution to their offerings! It is very exciting to think about the further development of my work resulting from association with BJ and Jennifer. They have been dedicated contributors and supporters of the Richmond art scene for over ten years. If you're in Richmond be sure to stop in and see them!
Donation to Shenandoah County Historical Society
It is so gratifying to be able to present the Shenandoah County Historical Society a check for $896.10! This donation is from the proceeds of my Barns of Shenandoah paintings, of which 20% is designated to SCHS's barn program. These funds will help support the documentation and preservation of our historic and traditional barns in Shenandoah County, Virginia. I will present the check tomorrow evening (Wednesday, March 28) at the SCHS meeting: 7:00 pm, St. Paul's Heritage Center, 106 S. High Street, Edinburg, VA. Please consider giving a donation as well!
John Adamson will present "A Survey & Documentation of Shenandoah County Barns". During the reception afterwards, we will have a small selection of barn paintings on display. Please come and get more informed about our barns--a unique and endangered, historical resource here in Shenandoah County!
Virginia's Most Endangered Places
And finally, the Historical Society has applied for one of Virginia's Most Endangered Places designation from the Richmond organization Preservation Virginia! Preservation Virginia is the oldest, statewide, historic preservation organization in the nation. Founded in 1889, they are instrumental in the preservation and revitalization of many notable, historic locations in Virginia, including Historic JamesTowne. We will find out in May if we get the designation so stay tuned!
See you soon! And Remember to Notice Beauty and Find Joy!
