And we are busy here at the gallery wrapping up our "Summer Relief Art Program" for children. This program gave local children an opportunity to work with one of our artists in creating unique art projects.
Our hands have not been idle as we have welcomed a number of new artists to our gallery. If you are looking for a custom creation stop by our gallery at 402 Main Street in Historic Yorktown, Va. You will find something that is sure to please your eye. New to our gallery are a variety of floral, nautical, historical themed paintings in a variety of artistic mediums. Also, dappled throughout our walls you will notice an eclectic new genre of art called encaustic painting (painting with hot wax). The colors and techniques which are combined to create these pieces of art are vibrant and stunning, leaving one to question how hot wax could be so beautiful.
There is art to please everyone’s senses. If nature is your passion the gallery is adorned with masterpieces painted on leaves one would find in their own back yard. Hand thrown pottery, creations in clay, repurposed glass sculptors and unique handmade jewelry are NOT in short supply. If you are doing a home renovation or planning on updating an existing space we have beautiful hand painted home decor waiting just for you. Here at On the Hill Gallery we pride ourselves in providing our visitors/customers with custom creations from local artists. We support buy local.
