Falls Church Arts
Falls Church Arts is a non-profit organization established in 2003 that serves the D.C. Metro area. We are dedicated to making the arts a vital and integral part of our community and to celebrating the creative energies of our artists and supporting members.
On February 25, 2017, Falls Church Arts opened its gallery and classroom at 700-B West Broad Street next door to Famille Cafe. This facility houses a diverse range of arts events, music, film, and instruction and studio arts classes.
Falls Church Arts also has programs – EXPANDING THE ARTS and pARTicipate – for the creation and display of art outside the studio and galleries. These programs bring art to the people and public spaces in our community and encourage pARTicipation in the arts with The Halloween Paint In, Chalk Walks, “Scenes in the City” Plein Air Festival, and others. Many of our patrons and artists are familiar with our weekly booth at the Falls Church Farmer’s Market (when weather permits), begun in 2013-14.
Falls Church Arts has been awarded grants from The Little City CATCH Foundation to help fund our operations and programming. Learn more about Falls Church Arts on their website.
Featured Artist: Victoria Lakes
Victoria Z. Lakes has been interested in art since she was five years old. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. Some of her artwork is in private collections here in the United States and some has been used commercially. In addition to her painting and drawing, she is an avid photographer and has pursued photography as an art form. She also worked for the National Geographic Society Production Services for 16 years.
Victoria’s goal is to create and share her art. She also hopes to be able to help support animals, which are some of her favorite subjects. She has donated art to the Pawcasso auction benefitting Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. Her artwork is a personal reflection and expression of herself. According to Victoria, “When I’m painting, I experience an inner joy and a relaxed feeling. When I’m creating art, I am home.”
Victoria’s paintings have appeared in art shows, including several juried art shows at Falls Church Arts, and exhibits at Famille. Her art also appears on the Fine Art America website, www.fineartamerica.com.
