A left-brained technologist by nature, education, and training, I am now retired and experimenting with the "other half" of whatever brain I still possess. I am looking to meet interesting people, engage in variety of group activities, travel, and enjoy my grandchildren.

Our friends at the Arts Center in Orange, Va are having a showing entitled EQUUS V: Horses in the Virginia Landscape. The exhibit runs through November 30, 2019 in the Morin Gallery. More details can be found on their website.
While we have you thinking about art, take a minute to view Judy Ely’s new posting in our Member Gallery.
Take a minute to admire Linda Bethke’s landscape painting in our Member Gallery. Our members continue to produce wonderful art!
While you are at it, take a look at what our friends in the Fluvanna Art Association are doing. Linda, like possibly many of you, is a member of both groups. In my short time with CVWG, I have enjoyed talking with Linda and hearing about their activities. Linda will lead one of CVWG’s monthly programs next year. Watch our calendar and program pages for details.
Jane Matthews is being honored with a showing of some of her landscape paintings at the Arden Place Apartments Clubhouse. A reception is being held this Friday, October 4, 2019 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Light refreshments will be served.

Here’s a map in case you do not know where these apartments are located.
I am starting a new page on this website to feature our member-artists in a new way. As I get members interested in displaying 5-7 pieces of their art and sharing a bit about their artistic journey, their muse, their artist’s statement, etc., I will publish a web page to feature their works.
For this inaugural Featured Artist page, I have collaborated with Susan Rosen, the winner of our Central Virginia Watercolor Guild Memorial Award at our recent Annual Exhibition. Please take a minute to enjoy Susan’s art and read a bit of her biography,
Please drop me, Mark Fitzpatrick, an email if you are interested in being featured on such a page in the future. Depending on interest, comments, and feedback, I will cycle this page every so often.
