Piedmont Regional Art Show & Sale

» Export this event to your personal calendar.
The legacy of Reverend Harold Peters still lives on at Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains.

The late Episcopal priest, who served from 1945 to 1964 as rector at churches in The Plains, Delaplane and Marshall, was instrumental in starting the art show at Grace Church in 1947. It began as a project of the Episcopal Church Women. Seventy years later, the show and sale remains the church’s major fundraiser and a must-see event throughout the region.

Last year 138 artists submitted 352 entries, and this year nearly 400 submissions are expected.
 
This year’s Piedmont Regional Art Show and Sale at Grace Episcopal Church will kick off May 19 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. with the Opening Gala for artists and sponsors. The show continues May 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and May 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no admission fee the last two days, and donations are appreciated.
 
Throughout its history the art show has featured the works of artists of all media, ages and levels of experience, including the work of established professionals.
 
This year’s jurists include Charlie Westbrook, Robin Hill and Diana Bunting. Westbrook is an award-winning self-taught expressionist oil painter currently represented by Richmond-based Manchester Contemporary Gallery. He has been a Fauquier County resident since 1996. Hill, who has a studio in Georgetown, is one of the world’s most distinguished bird painters and artists. His career has spanned five decades and three continents. Bunting teaches at her gallery in Marshall, VA. She’s a contemporary plein air painter. Her works hang in private collections in the U.S., Peru, Canada, Uruguay and Argentina.

Admission to the Gala opening is complimentary to exhibiting artists and sponsors. There is a $15 admission charge for additional guests.  
 
Proceeds from the show benefit local ministries of Grace Church, and help ensure the continuation of the show. This year’s show is in memory of Gail Matheson, whose support and dedication through the years helped make this event such a success.

 “This is a wonderful show because there’s so many different mediums,” says Susan Gibbs, last year’s Best in Show winner for “Sweet Fragrance,” an oil painting on canvas. The Haymarket, VA, resident again is entered in this year’s Piedmont Regional Art Show & Sale in The Plains.
