Four Seasons Active Adult Community Exhibition: Visual Expressions

December 12, 2016 - January 28, 2017

Visual Expressions is a small group of artists living in Four Seasons at Historic Virginia, an "Over 55 Active Adult Community" in eastern Prince William County, Virginia. The group was established in 2014 to promote creative endeavors to stimulate the mind, reduce the effects of stress-related diseases and slow cognitive decline. The group meets monthly to discuss new projects, share tips and information, and learn from guest speakers. They hold one or two workshops a month and have an annual exhibit within the community, as well as an occasional outside exhibit. Several of group members are also members of the Prince William Arts Society.

Gallery Reception: Thursday, January 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., featuring wines by Miracle Valley Vineyard.
