Two weekends ago I drove four hours west to the western part of Virginia to a neat little town, New Market, for the first opening of a new gallery owned by my good friends Jean Peacock and George Tussing. They converted the lower level of their second home and historic building (it was a schoolhouse at one time and then a home for some of George's family). Hence the name "The Old Schoolhouse Galllery". It converted into two nice gallery spaces with other space in a reception area, all brightly painted. It looks fantastic! Here are a few photos showing one of the galleries, some of my favorite work of George's in the show and then some shots from around the town of New Market. After visiting the area, I can see why George is so inspired to paint the mountains and countryside of this part of Virginia. It's so pretty here! Soon I'll show some photos of the countryside.
