In the first post-pandemic (that is, fully vaccinated) art opening, we were psyched to see some pastel and pencil by Tia Maggio.  No longer local, Tia lives in Massachusetts.  Much of her current work is inspired by views to be found near her home.

The work was displayed at Youngblood Gallery in The Plains, Virginia.

This one is now in the permanent collection


Interesting displays under glass


The far right pastel is from the same series as one of the ones we purchased



Most of the Tia’s we have are in pastel.  Pencil is a new medium for us.  Same color palette, but finer lines and more space.



Invocation of winter


Invocation of Spring


We also purchased the upper right piece shown here


This one is also in the permanent collection now. One day it will be framed.
