Call for Artist-Members
The Gateway Gallery is currently accepting applications for new member-artists. We are a well established group with a proven track record and requirements of only two four-hour shifts per month and $30 monthly dues. We currently have space for one wall (2-D) artist, and we will consider artists working in all media, though we are especially interested in leather, basketry, blown glass, and fiber arts.
More importantly, joining the Gallery is fun -- we're a terrific and talented group, if we do say so ourselves. If you are an artist with work to share, contact us today! Learn more or join today!
The Holidays at the Gateway Gallery:
We will have special Holiday hours 11 am to 6 pm on Monday December 22 and Tuesday December 23 to help you get your shopping done before Santa's arrival. In our "Tools of the Trade" Feature display, you'll find a glittering holiday display of jewelry by Katy Stidley, Meredith Hilt, Mary Kenesson, Robin Wilkinson and Kara Laughlin, as well as Trish Harris' beautiful woven scarves and Temari ornaments, and works of fused glass by Liz Cresap and Steena Fullmer. All the artists of the Gallery are displaying their own interpretation of seasonal ornaments as well!
Throughout the month of December we invite you to help weave an outdoor holiday tree sculpture using fiber of different kinds, and enjoy hot cider and refreshments. We are also accepting donations to Loudoun Interfaith Relief to help everyone in Loudoun enjoy the season.
Welcoming Three New Artists! Meet Liz Cresap, Catherine Hillis & Robin Wilkinson

Sundays are "Demo Days" at the Gallery
The artists of the Gateway Gallery will have Demo Days EVERY Sunday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm through December. Get up-close and personal with each of our artists and learn more about their media, tools, and techniques. We'll have demos in printmaking, pottery, painting, papermaking, wood turning, pewtersmithing...an incredible variety of experiences. And, did we mention these demos are FREE? It's a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
