howard alan events to host 6th alexandria festival of the arts

Having attended each of the past five outdoor annual arts festivals in Old Town Alexandria, Shauna Lee Lange Arts Advisory looks forward to this year's celebration slated for September 13 - 14th. Over all the past years, we walked away most amazed at the growth in glass art vendors (see the in-depth glass works article on this site) and most surprised by the year that had a young man of less than 13 years of age selling driftwood from a side table.

We're blessed to live in a community with such a rich arts culture and one that happens to be less than 15 minutes away from our nation's best arts archives. The Alexandria Festival of the Arts features jewelry, sculpture, photography, mixed media, incredible oils and watercolors, musicians, good weather, and dogs. Oh, you're going to see dogs. Dogs mixed in with bicyclists, kids in strollers, cups of coffee, and bottles of water. Bring your sunglasses, comfortable walking shoes, and an eye of discernment in selecting works for your business or your home.

Alexandria's own first woman veteran owned arts writing, arts designing, arts coaching, and arts consulting firm, Shauna Lee Lange Arts Advisory, specializes not only in acquisition and placement of art works, but also in determining appropriate market price points so you know you're getting value for your art investments.
