"Table on the Green," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©2016 Jill Banks is one of 20+ original oils in Jill Banks' "The Road Show" solo exhibit on view at the Great Falls Library through January 31
You may have received two different emails from me tonight -- one is this blog post and the other is my email newsletter sent to those of you who have subscribed to it through my website. I hope you'll read them both. (I know that's asking a lot...)

Well, Randy and I were busy yesterday (Tuesday, January 3) afternoon -- hanging 20+ original paintings depicting many of our previous adventures in Virginia, Texas, California, Paris, Italy, New York, Spain and the Brandywine Valley. (Even if you visited my Home Studio Open House in November, there will still be three pieces there you would not have seen previously.

Now I hope you'll come see it.

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7, 2-6pm at the Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA
This is really short notice ... I know ... so I hope you'll mark your calendar and help me spread the word. I'd love to see you!

And if you'd like to see more of my work that day (January 7), stop by the Artist's Atelier at 756 Walker Road, Great Falls during open hours from 10am to 2pm and then come over to the library. The two locations are really close to one another. (And I'll be at the library getting ready between noon and 2. So come over even if you're early. I might just put you to work.)

The exhibit continues through January 31.
You may view the exhibit online here.
Get info about library hours here. (The library is closed on Sundays and January 16, January 20)

The meeting room -- where the exhibit is on view -- is frequently being used so don't be too surprised if there's a group inside.  Generally weekday afternoons are the safest bet but if you are planning a trip, please feel free to ask me about the schedule and I might just meet you over there as well. Email me at

Thank you for reading and your support... Hope to see you soon!

Happy New Year!
