You are invited to a special art event happening in Fredericksburg March 3 & 4 at the Grove House. Our friend, Jill Steenhuis, an American-born French Impressionistic painter based in the south of France will be in town. We are hosting an art show for her and she is offering an oil painting workshop as well.
Jill specializes in oil painting, lithography and watercolor; she is a Cezanne expert with the Smithsonian Institute; and, she is a talented and lovely person. We are excited to have her!
Many of you have met Jill during her last visit to Fredericksburg. This time, she is offering a one-day oil painting workshop on Saturday from 9am-4pm. Jill also offers workshops in France. Our good friend, Patty Renick, visited Jill last summer and painted with her in the south of France and had a wonderful time! The class on March 3 is limited to 12 and open to all levels of painters.
On Sunday, Jill will do a plein air demonstration at 3pm at the Grove House, followed by a wine reception with nibbles and drink provided by the newest shop in Fredericksburg, La Bergerie!
Attached is information about the workshop and the weekend show. All works are available for viewing or for purchase. 10% of the proceeds from the show will be donated to Ambleside School of Fredericksburg. Please spread the word! Grab a friend or two and come enjoy the beautiful setting of the Grove House, good food and drink and wonderful art!
