Join local artists and musicians for the final Art-in-the-Train-Station of the summer in the historic Train Station in Downtown Purcellville on Sunday September 20 from 12-6 PM.  At the beginning of the W&OD Trail, sits a restored train station that will be used to showcase local artists and musicians.  Magnolias will be serving food and wine can be bought by the glass.

The following artists will have their pieces on display and for sale:

ALICE POWER’S watercolors are inspired by both the traditional rural life that surrounds her as well as the events and places she visits.  Her favorite subjects tell a story or evoke a memory.

ANTONELLA MANGANELLI  is free in her art.  When she paints her heart is connected with the universe.  She’s inspired by objects found during her walks and travels: shells, wood sticks, stones and they are the alchemical magic formula to transform her memories into a surreal journey.  She experiments with different materials, techniques, and styles.

BRITT HEILMAN creates a variety of bohemian and nature-inspired handmade jewelry.  She uses techniques such as electroforming, wire-wrapping, bead weaving, and shaping and hammering metals to lend an earthy and rustic appeal to her pieces.  Much of her work incorporates natural gemstones and raw crystals to add color, texture, and positive energy to each creation.

DAVE LEVINSON has been a resident of Loudoun County since 1997.  He explores Loudoun county seeking out the natural beauty it has to offer.  He aims to share his discoveries through photography while using preservation as a backdrop.  Dave’s passion for the outdoors, his county, hiking and exploration serves as a canvas for his chosen medium, photography.

KAREN HUTCHISON is attracted to abstract art as it allows her the freedom of painting in a formless language that is not subject to the traditional rules of painting.  Instead her work is created from the heart, a thought, emotion or experience.  She often creates combinations of colors, and textures to express her emotion and to satisfy her interior restlessness.

SALLY MALLOY owns Purcellville Pottery and she specializes in ceramic art.  An artist’s imagination, along with different clay bodies and techniques allow tremendous versatility and personal expression through clay.  The possibilities are endless and can include sculpture, functional dishware, decorative tiles, large ceramic installation, whatever you can dream up.

SARAH HUNTINGTON, with a strong background in fine art, shoots documentary and fine art photography. The aesthetics that drive her are elegance, simplicity, and the human spirit.  When composition, form, quality of light and content come together there she finds a great and timeless image.

SHERRY EASTRIDGE LONG specializes in art that reflects many different facets of life by incorporating her strong desire to bring a smile or simply lift the viewer’s spirit by compelling them to pause and look for a few moments.  Her original work ranges from landscapes, portraits, animals, equine subjects, historical, and still life subjects with a realistic touch.

SUSAN BREEN, resident of Ashburn, Virginia, is a digital artist and an award winning photographer.  What was her hobby, turned into a passion for developing fine art digital paintings from the photographs she takes.  With the use of digital technology, she developed a technique for her photographs that identifies the individuality of her work as she thrives to capture the spirit of watercolor and Impressionist painters in her digital paintings.

Art in the Train Station will offer a full schedule of local musicians.

12-1:45 Willie White is performing.  He is a popular singer/songwriter and will perform his blend of original music, from John Coltrane to Jimi Hendrix, performed in an acoustical format.
