Old Town Alexandria VA on King Street
|My recent booth at Shadyside ... something similar full of artwork you just might want to take home will be in Alexandria VA for the King Street Art Festival on its new dates of September 22 and 23|
I really want to see you in Old Town Alexandria for the King Street Art Festival ... but this fantastic outdoor fine art show isn't this weekend (September 15 & 16, 2018) as originally planned ... but is a GO for the following weekend on September 22 & 23.

Find out more about the festival here. And, get a sneak peek into what your may find in my booth here. There are apt to be some fresh new paintings created between now (when I'm posting this) and the show. I know I'll be meeting some goats and have paints ready to capture them ... the week leading up to the 22 & 23. And if goats aren't your "thing," maybe urban streetscapes, markets, still lifes and people are. (You'll find those in my booth too.)
And to find my booth, it really helps to have cross streets and landmarks ... but I will not find out my official booth number until September 20 so check my events page here before coming. (My booth has been located right in front of the Alexandrian hotel in the past. Hope to be there again.)
My booth won't look just like what's shown above. That middle cityscape on the the back wall was purchased last weekend and will go to its home far, far, far away as soon as the shipping logistics are worked out. Actually, many major pieces have found new homes lately. I will be working on a beautiful new showstopper. Wish me luck and good painting, please!!!!
There's lots of news to share ... so look for multiple blog posts today and tomorrow. Also a newsletter coming to those subscribed via my website (it's not the same -- so if in doubt, go to www.JillBanks.com to subscribe).
