This weekend is full of art activities on the Village Green in Great Falls, VA!

The fun kicks off tonight with the June First Friday Art Walk on the Green from 6-9 PM. Three working artist studios will be open to greet visitors–The Artists’ Atelier at 756 Walker Road, Artists on the Green at 776 Walker Road, and The Artists’ Loft at 766 Walker Road. And there will be 20 artists from Great Falls Studios in large tents on the Green itself for an Art Show and Sale.

I’ll be in my studio space at the Artists’ Atelier all weekend. Hours are 6-9 tonight, 9-5 Saturday June 4, and 11-8 Sunday June 5. Admission is free–it’s a great way to experience the wonderful art that’s being created right in our community.

There will be children’s art activities at the Art School of Great Falls directly behind the Atelier on Saturday 12-4 and Sunday 2-6. Cap off the weekend with the first Concert on the Green of the summer, featuring Mike Terpak Blues Explosion from 6-8. Grab the family, friends, a blanket and a picnic and join us!

If you didn’t get a chance to come out for the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival two weekends ago because of the weather, come see my new work this weekend, like Journey Home, at left. It’s a large piece–about 48″ wide x 30″ high and it would look great over a sofa or buffet table. And I will have some small pieces like the ones in the featured image.

I hope to see you there!
