— The days are getting longer and flowers are starting to pop up, so you know spring is on the way. And we’ve got lots of fun events for you and your loved ones going on in Middleburg this month, so check out our latest guide and prepare to mark your calendar!
“Spring Bouquet” at The Byrne Gallery: March 4-29
The Byrne Gallery is proud to present “Spring Bouquet,” an exhibition by three local artists who are all new to the gallery. Each uses a different medium in their floral paintings and expresses color in their own unique way. Margaret Farr uses the medium of watercolor on paper to render her sometimes delicate, sometimes bold floral and botanical compositions. Cathleen Lawless turns to oil on canvas to convey her delight in the new season, while Carolyn Marshall Wright chooses water-based media to convey the energy of spring.
There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday, March 14, from 5-8 p.m. The exhibition and reception are both open to the public and everyone is cordially invited to attend.
“Beer & Art” at Old Ox Brewery: March 5 | 6-7 p.m.
Join Hill School art history teacher John Daum as you travel back to the time of the Titans, the war against the Olympians and the birth of Venus. Along the way, you will discover the lasting impact of these stories on great works of art from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
