There’s No Place Like Home
Herndon and Great Falls are both small towns that attract artists – to create in but also to live in. When you ask them to look into their heart and create a piece that evokes “home” to them what is the result? Is it a building, a person, a childhood, hidey-hole where they went to dream of the future, the aroma of Mom’s apple pie cooking, a pair of ruby slippers? Come visit this juried exhibit by members of Great Falls Studios and see if you can find Home.
Great Falls Studios welcomed Tom and Linda Neel as judges this year. With a combined 65 years of art industry business between them, the husband and wife team of Tom and Linda Neel have the unique experience of having owned and directed multiple galleries, worked on the management team of the fine art publisher, The Greenwich Workshop, and founded the artistic inspirational website Live An Artful Life®.

He has over 15 years of judging experience which includes 10 years as lead judge of the Congressional Art Show, 5 years as lead judge for Loudoun Education Foundation, Millwood Art Fair, The Hylton Performing Art Center Juried Show and more.
