Press Release: May 22, 2017

The LAC's artWorks program will feature the work of an accomplished Loudoun artist this summer. Photographer Samantha Marshall's arresting digital images will adorn the walls of the Old Ox Brewery Tasting Room.

Marshall's work inthe show "If These Walls Could Talk..." is based on photographs she alters digitally for effect. Her images have a breathtaking sense of imagery and staging. The exhibit will be up at Old Ox Brewery at 44652 Guilford Dr #114, in Ashburn June through August. The Tasting Room is open Tuesdays through Sundays; check www.oldoxbrewery.com for details. Meet Samantha at a special Artist's Reception on Friday June 16 at 7 pm.

Over the past two years the artWorks program has launched several art exhibits at area venues, each curated for the individual space. These shows and accompanying Artist's Receptions have resulted in new connections between artists and patrons, as well as art sales. Patrons can buy art on the spot using the LAC's new tagging system, which uses QR codes. Purchasers can pay for art using their smart phones, show the receipt to staff, and take their artwork home. "It's important to make the art purchase as easy as possible for patrons," says LAC President Jill Evans-Kavaldjian. Interested in learning more about becoming an artWorks artist or venue?

Art in Abandoned Places...

This year I have decided to focus a lot on the art of photography.  Capturing an image can be very personal, and as we find styles and subjects we love and enjoy, things can evolve.     Each year I choose a handful of focuses for my photography goals.  Weddings... People... Nature... History... Abandoned Spaces...  Whatever it is you love it is always about learning.

Fine art photography has no true definition and comes to life with each artist.  Poetic justice of the art world I suppose...  This is the beginning of a new artistic series.  As I spend time throughout the year capturing shadows, light and interesting things, I hope to create each series of images to share emotions and history through art.
