Update On Red Hill Road Water Towers

October 31, 2014 by Mary M. Bathory Vidaver Development, News Be the first to comment

Board Vote On Nov. 5

The Red Hill Road Water Towers story took a surprising twist at the Board of Supervisors’ Transportation / Land Use Committee meeting on October 17, when committee members Scott York (R-At-Large), Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge), and Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) voted to send the application to the full board with a recommendation that the board turn down Loudoun Water’s proposal for two 189-foot, 1 million-gallon water tanks alongside unpaved Red Hill Road. Committee Chairwoman Suzanne Volpe (R-Sugarland Run) was the sole vote in opposition; the committee’s fifth member, Geary Higgins (R-Catoctin), was absent from the meeting.

The committee’s action means a final vote will occur at the board business meeting on November 5 with at least four Supervisors aligned against the project. Clarke, Higgins, and Delgaudio voted against the application at the Board’s Public Hearing in September. York’s decision not to support the application now leaves tower opponents within one vote of their goal. The Blue Ridge Leader attempted to contact the remaining supervisors, but only reached Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn), who commented, “At this point I am still evaluating my position.”

Into the Light -- an exhibit by glass jewelry artist Claire Nykolyszyn and contemporary oil painter Dana Thompson

Close

November 1, 2014

205 N. Maple Ave
Purcellville, 20132

In November, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Into the Light, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing lampworked beads in jewelry designs by Claire Nykolyszyn, and painter Dana Thompson’s contemporary still lifes and landscapes, as both artists demonstrate how light  inspires their work in this one-of-a-kind show.

A spectrum of colors is reflected in Claire Nykolyszyn’s torch melted glass work.  Beads range in size and take many forms including round, square, bicone, tabular and lentil.  Interesting surface work, including the addition of cubic zirconias, adds to the appeal of these creations, which are offered in bracelets, pendants, earrings and focal beads.  The depth of color and textures within the beads produces a stunning light show.

Eclectic collections of vintage items commingle with vegetables or flowers, household goods, even Hostess cupcakes, to form pleasing, and sometimes unlikely relationships.  Dana Thompson’s use of clear vibrant color and interesting arrangements demonstrate her talent for capturing and using light to render stunning compositions in both still lifes and dramatic landscapes.

Join the artists for a glass of wine, light fare and live music by Sometimes Sisters, during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, November 22, from 5 – 8 p.m.

In November, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Into the Light, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing lampworked beads in jewelry designs by Claire Nykolyszyn, and painter Dana Thompson’s contemporary still lifes and landscapes, as both artists demonstrate how light  inspires their work in this one-of-a-kind show.

A spectrum of colors is reflected in Claire Nykolyszyn’s torch melted glass work.  Beads range in size and take many forms including round, square, bicone, tabular and lentil.  Interesting surface work, including the addition of cubic zirconias, adds to the appeal of these creations, which are offered in bracelets, pendants, earrings and focal beads.  The depth of color and textures within the beads produces a stunning light show.

Eclectic collections of vintage items commingle with vegetables or flowers, household goods, even Hostess cupcakes, to form pleasing, and sometimes unlikely relationships.  Dana Thompson’s use of clear vibrant color and interesting arrangements demonstrate her talent for capturing and using light to render stunning compositions in both still lifes and dramatic landscapes.

Join the artists for a glass of wine, light fare and live music by Sometimes Sisters, during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, November 22, from 5 – 8 p.m.

In November, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Into the Light, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing lampworked beads in jewelry designs by Claire Nykolyszyn, and painter Dana Thompson’s contemporary still lifes and landscapes, as both artists demonstrate how light  inspires their work in this one-of-a-kind show.

A spectrum of colors is reflected in Claire Nykolyszyn’s torch melted glass work.  Beads range in size and take many forms including round, square, bicone, tabular and lentil.  Interesting surface work, including the addition of cubic zirconias, adds to the appeal of these creations, which are offered in bracelets, pendants, earrings and focal beads.  The depth of color and textures within the beads produces a stunning light show.

Eclectic collections of vintage items commingle with vegetables or flowers, household goods, even Hostess cupcakes, to form pleasing, and sometimes unlikely relationships.  Dana Thompson’s use of clear vibrant color and interesting arrangements demonstrate her talent for capturing and using light to render stunning compositions in both still lifes and dramatic landscapes.

Join the artists for a glass of wine, light fare and live music by Sometimes Sisters, during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, November 22, from 5 – 8 p.m.
