The Gloucester, Virginia community should be very proud of its special art gallery, Arts on Main,  Kay Van Dyke, its founder, and all the special volunteers that have made this amazing art facility possible. Currently, Arts on Main has its first annual members juried show on view throughout the month of October. Well-known artist James Warwick Jones was juror. This show follows many other events there, including the annual show of the Virginia Watercolor Society that was beautifully hung and publicized by the gallery.

Gloucester can be proud of this ambitious venture that has brought in artists from all over the area. Besides presenting shows, the gallery holds art workshops and promotes the arts in many other ways as well.

Artists represented in the show will be at the gallery throughout the month of October. Some will present demonstrations of how they create their work. The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 12 noon to 5 p.m.
