Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is hosting art exhibits at both its Middletown and Warrenton campuses throughout March and April.  Currently at the Warrenton Campus is an exhibit entitled, “Dreamscapes,” comprised of contemporary quilts by a group of quilt artists called, “The Twisted Stitchers.”  This group of women of current and retired educators  is dedicated to sharing ideas, giving and receiving inspiration, and encouraging each other to travel down new creative pathways.  All the quilts in this exhibit are the original designs or interpretations of the quilter.  The exhibit was at LFCC’s Middletown Campus February 24th to March 15th and is at the Warrenton Campus from March 16th through April 20th.

 Currently on exhibit at LFCC’s Middletown Campus is the art of Donald Depuydt of Leesburg, VA.  Depuydt is a professor of fine arts at Northern Virginia Community College’s Loudoun Campus and works in etching and lithography.  Depuydt has exhibited his work throughout the greater Washington, DC area, Wisconsin, and Illinois.  His art will remain on display at the Middletown Campus in the Sekel Art Atrium through April 20th.
