At Artist Potluck, artists of all ages will come together to share ideas and fellowship over a community-centered meal. Just bring a friend, your creative mind, and your favorite dish!
The Loudoun House will serve as a casual gathering place for artists in the area to come together. The beauty of this event is that everyone will learn new ideas. Young artists will learn about the classic styles and techniques from older, more experienced artists while the older artists may pick up tips on how to use social media from the younger artists.
Psychologist Rollo May once said, “Communication leads to community. That is, to understanding, intimacy, and mutual valuing.” The exchange of ideas and creativity will fill the air as local artists get acquainted with one another. This is a great way to network and learn how to market your art if you are a new or upcoming artist.
During the second hour of the event, attendees will experience the musical sounds of Will Solomon. Will is a Lexington artist that focuses on folk, soul, and bluegrass music. There is no better way to celebrate local artists than to hear the sounds of the bluegrass state.
Will has a special connection to the Loudoun House as he attended art classes here as a young boy. His art filled the house then, as it will at this event. This fits with Artist Potluck’s theme of art connecting everyone at every age.
Come join us for Artist Potluck on Thursday, January 28th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Loudoun House!
