Getting it together- Fine Arts in the Valley 2012

Fine Arts in the Valley has been around since the late 1990's. I started working with the group around 2000. The core group Marilu Tousignaut, Homer Yost & myself have kept the domain name and set up a new web site:  http://fineartsinthevalley.wix.com/fav

Previously the Fine Arts in the Valley was an artists tour. Marilu & I set up the barn at Country Pleasures Farm as our gallery space. Over the years things have taken different directions. The FAV core group turned into the Mountain Laurel Show. That show was held at my home/studio in the woodlands of Frederick, MD when the mountain laurel were in full bloom. I have since moved leaving the group with no place to show together. Lori & Eric were happy to have the group come back to the barn. Joining the three of us from the Mountain Laurel show is Marilu's daughter, Tracy Tousignaut Reed and my friend Sarah Simpson. In addition this year my daughter, Beccy Lynch will be included in the Fine Arts in the Valley at Country Pleasures Farm.

Tracy has set up a Face Book page please "like" us to continue getting updates on what the artists are doing to get it together for the show. http://www.facebook.com/fineartsinthevalley

The exhibit is two weekends: October 12-13-14 and 19-20-21, 2012. The artists: Linda Harrison-Parsons, works on paper, Marilu Tousignaut, scratchboard - fiber works, Homer Yost, sculpture - drawings, Tracy Tousignaut Reed, photograph, Sarah Simpson, photograph and new this year Beccy Lynch, jewelry. The group is by invitation and a jury process by the core group of artists. We will all have our works under one roof sharing the Amish built barn on the grounds of the Country Pleasures Farm in Middletown, MD. The views are as amazing as the art work.

As I am getting it together, I will work on putting together a photo album of the artists works. Until then here are a few pictures of the farm & the artists works. Enjoy, mark your calendars!
