Great Falls Studios (GFS) was founded in May 2003 by a small group who wished to establish a network of artists in the community of Great Falls, Virginia. It now has a membership of more than 90 artists who produce art in their studios throughout the town of Great Falls. Membership is open to any working artist in the community as well as non-artist "Friends" who wish to join with these artists to establish more art in Great Falls.
The organization promotes the artistic endeavors of Great Falls artists through its network of continuous communication among the members, its contact with other community organizations, its several annual exhibitions, and other events in the community. GFS hosts this website to feature the work of its members. Our membership in the Arts Council of Fairfax County provides our own members access to the resources of that organization.
Since its founding in 2003, Great Falls Studios has arranged group exhibitions at community events such as the Taste of Great Falls and Great Falls Day. We also hold group exhibits at the Great Falls Library. Check our Calendar for the schedule of current and upcoming exhibits.
Great Falls Studios seeks to increase the opportunities for experiencing art in the Great Falls Community and to support other community organizations. A portion of sales at GFS sponsored events have been donated to local charities, including the Brogue Charities, the Great Falls Firehouse Building Fund, and the Friends of the Great Falls Library. Great Falls Studios allocates a portion of its sales to promote the arts in Great Falls.
