Kevin H. Adams, the Gallery's resident artist, unveils new paintings from Virginia and his travels. Featured here is "Corbin Cabin Trail" (30x36).

Gallery show

Gay Street Gallery’s newest exhibition opens Saturday, Oct. 23, with a reception with artists from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Beverages and refreshments will be served.

Featured at the Washington gallery will be paintings by David Hyde Costello,

famed author-illustrator of children's literature; Frederick Williamson's gorgeous, hand-turned wooden vessels; and hear Kevin H. Adams discuss his newest work.

Kevin is a member of New York City's Salmagundi Club, the oldest association of artists in the U.S., and also of The Provincetown Art Association and Museum. His work is regularly on display in both venues. His focus when capturing the landscapes he witnesses is on the light and its impact on color as we see it.

Put it on your calendar so you don’t miss it!

October is usually a busy month 

Fall is in the air, bringing with it crisp, cool mornings, the beautiful changing of the leaves, camouflage on the hunters who are out tracking deer and bear, pumpkin-spice everything, and yes, the stink bugs. We sure can’t forget those with the bad smell.

Oh, how our world has changed in one year’s time. As I was thinking over the weekend, how Rappahannock used to bring those special events. Washington Volunteer Fire and Rescue held its annual oyster and ham dinner, with a great turnout of people. Washington Baptist Church held its homecoming celebration. And there was the House Tour sponsored by the Episcopal Church ladies of Trinity Parish. How the Country Cafe on Main Street, where David and his staff would prepare a meal of thanks for their customers. Things have changed so much because of the COVID-19.

But we can also pause and reflect on all we can be thankful for, despite COVID-19.


Birthday wishes go out to my grandson, Troy Jackson Singleton, from Hickory North Carolina. He will celebrate his special day on Monday, (Oct. 18). Happy birthday, Troy!
