Professional Distinction: Demonstrations, Exhibition, Instruction
JarrettThor Fine Arts has been a working studio for regional artists and owner/artists Joyce and Carl Thor for over 10 years. Beginning in June, 2018, an Artists’ cooperative, the Artists’ Alliance (AA), has taken over management of suite 101, at the gallery. The AA consists of 20 members, working in the media of: painting (oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel), photography, pottery, encaustic, stained glass, basketry, and jewelry. Each month’s show includes a featured Artist of the Month. Exhibits change monthly, coinciding with Colonial Beach’s Second Friday Art Walk (6-9pm). The gallery also displays kitchen and bathroom art (in the gallery kitchen and bathroom). And, visitors are eligible for a free monthly drawing for a small piece of art, in exchange for their email address. The drawing continues throughout the show, with a winner announced at the next month’s opening. The Thor’s continue to maintain gallery and office space in the adjoining area (suite 102).
