Celebrating Our First Year at Our New Location


Artists of ArtVisions Gallery and Studios are hosting an exhibit of artworks during the last weekend of January as part of their vision to benefit SML Good Neighbors, Inc. 

Fifty percent of each artwork sold will be donated. Hours are 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, January 28 and 29, plus other hours that weekend by request.  Snow dates are February 4 and 5, 2017.  ArtVisions Gallery is located at 130 Scruggs Road, Suite 215 (By the Chicken), Moneta, VA 24121.  Easy parking is available in the upper level lot.   

Plans were already underway for their one year anniversary of a move from Burnt Chimney to Westlake, when members agreed to share their celebration with Good Neighbors. The show will feature fine art originals, prints, and note cards of fourteen local area members.  Their willingness to participate is in response to what Good Neighbors does for the Smith Mountain Lake community.

We are thrilled for this opportunity to come together and offer our art and visions.  Members pictured (left to right) Lana McCulloch, Nancy Stellhorn, Denise Swayne, Marie Campbell, Rita Carroll, Rose Mary Atkins, Jane Schafer, Nancy Rae Brown, and Julie English. Not pictured are Whitney Brock, Lynne Ludovici, Shelley Koopmann, Linda Murray Atkinson and Barbara Moody.

Linda Atkinson's Newest Painting for 2017

Red, Red Wine
6"x6" Acrylic/Collage

Linda's recent painting is just in time for Valentine's Day; it would make a great gift.  It is available at Art Visions Gallery for the great price of $44.00.  I'm sure it won't be hanging at the Gallery long.

Rose Mary Atkin's First Painting of 2017

"Hen Party"
Oil on Canvas

This is Rose Mary's latest painting in her "Barnyard Series".  Rose Mary says "This one I find funny because when I was working on it I would find myself coming up with different things I could call it or what they might be saying.  I decided one is asking the other, have you ever heard of chicken pot pie?"

Nancy loves old buildings and barns.  Adding bright colors to a scene is her way of having fun with a painting.

Maine is one of Nancy's favorite places to visit.  This is an oil painting of the coast of Maine.
