The Fine Arts in the Valley at Country Pleasures Farm and Orchard is a annual show that has taken on a couple different formats. At one point it became the Mountain Laurel Show but then I moved which ended that venue, so we brought back FAV. The FAV show was a tour going from one artists studio to another. Marilu and I shared a couple different barns, the first was at Mar-lu Ridge. Later we moved to Country Pleasures Farm and Orchard. Over the years as the event barn grew with more space and an upstairs loft area we invited the other artists to just join us there making one stop to see all the artists.
This will be the last year for the Fine Arts in the Valley show. We hope that many of you that have been in the past will come and say good-bye. For those of you that have been wanting to come this is your last chance to see us all together as a group. There will be lots of specials going on over the two weekends. Original art give away's - all that is needed is for you to come and make a purchase from any of the artists and your name will go in the drawing. Some of the drawing will take place during the final reception on Oct. 25th from 2-4 and the final drawings will take place at the close of the show. You do not need to be present to win.
On the opposite end our first, the NOMA gallery, will have it's Grand Opening this Saturday, October 3rd from 5-8. This is Historic Downtown Frederick, MD newest gallery. I am part of this new group of artists. While I am up for the FAV show I will be at the NOMA gallery on October 23rd from 4-8 doing a pastel demo. If you can't make it for the opening come on by and see me on the 23rd!
Here are the web sites to FAV & NOMA plus addresses and email if you want to reach out to me for more information.
