If you have not been to the Falls Church Arts Gallery on Maple Street at the Creative Caldron, you are truly missing something. If you live and work in the area you may discover interesting treatments of familiar places created by painters. The participants are truly excellent artists nestled together in this intimate space.
The best way to see the work is first hand. That way you can appreciate the scope and scale of the creations. You can see the brush strokes and techniques. Surely, it would make artists pleased if you wanted to take a painting home with you as these are historical heirlooms.
