Fredericksburg home. Displaying the original art of our members is one of our chief means to promote local artists. Our artists work in distinct, varied media including original oils and watercolors, photography, sculpture, handmade jewelry, fine art prints and cards. The subject matter is as varied as each of our artist’s view of their world including landscapes, still life, architectural pieces, abstracts, and portraiture. Each month we feature one of our fine artists in the Main Room of the Gallery. Most of the work displayed at the Gallery can be purchased from the individual artist. The Gallery can receive checks, cash or credit cards in payment.
FREDERICKSBURG IS A GREAT ART DESTINATION

It was hung in late April and is titled “The Bridge.” It is available for sale at a price of $6500. You can see Mr. Wyatt’s website here.
