Skeeter Scheid is a fiber artist whose fanciful works are a cross between reality and imagination. Her fiber-sculpted trees and dolls have been featured in many local shows and adorn many homes in our community ~Sally Cooney Anderson

“A Tribute to Adam DeSio” Art First, 824 Caroline ST Open Thurs-S Sun 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adam's artwork reflected his passion for life - colorful, dynamic. His work morphed his love of modern and abstract art into something that was just pure Adam. His display KINETIC was a series of abstract landscape photography Adam captured over three years. "For me, the images represent a departure from the hyper-realistic, fast moving reality of life… to a more surreal space; where time and surroundings move more slowly and deliberately. The images represent: a seat on the ground beneath a tree, the warm sun on my face on a cold winter day, a long walk off into the woods, or down the road, or around the bend, or off into the unknown." A light extinguished much too soon, we are lucky to still be able to see the world through his eyes in the artwork that he has left behind. To own a piece of Adam DeSio's work is to truly hold a piece of time and of the Fredericksburg region. His son Addison is following in his father's footsteps, and his artwork will also be on display ~Jeff Say

“Broken Promises”, Penny A Parrish @BSG

Brush Strokes gallery's artists are highlighting an element of red hue in their artwork this February, in recognition of the month that celebrates Love. In addition, many of the artists' images can harken thoughts of hearts and dreams broken with the loss of loved ones and relationships, as well as a pathway to healing, through love. . Penny A Parrish's photo of a wedding gown in a shop window, " Broken Promise," opens the imagination to a tale of the resale of a dress that was never used ~Collette Caprara
