Hello all,
Due to COVID-19, we are no longer working out of the gallery location in Fairfax City and will be redirecting all work to the Herndon Studio (by appointment only). The Herndon Studio is open almost every day of the week and has a much more flexible time schedule. If you need anything restored, please contact us via email or phone (NOT Facebook Messenger) and we will schedule you accordingly.
We hope that someday activities will return to normal.
Best regards,
Art Gallery 101
