Bryane and I want to thank everyone who helped get the magnificent show up for viewing at FCD in Falls Church.
The team (and it truly was a team effort) worked hard to get art ready and install it on Tuesday and Wednesday. We can all be proud that we have helped add Art to what is already going to be an exciting and attractive venue starting with a soft opening on July 1, 2017. There are currently over 80 pieces of art ranging in size from 6 inches square to 3 feet by 6 feet. Needless to say, we are all tired and a bit overwhelmed but anxious to get going in Falls Church in affiliation with a great crew already there (including Michael, Lorenzo and Jim).
Let me also introduce Jason Davis. Jason, as you will soon see, is a most welcome addition to the Lalo family.

Effective on June 1, 2017 there have been changes to the Studio Bee Gallery (Lalo’s Retail Art Gallery) in Luray. Jim Mayes, the owner of the Warehouse Art Gallery (“WAG”) and a Lalo Member, had asked that the Expressions Room be returned to its original purpose at WAG as an activity and all purpose room. He also suggested that Lalo receive a display wall in WAG’s largest gallery room.
This offer to change from the Expressions Room at WAG to space in the Main Gallery was accepted by the Licksons on behalf of Lalo.
The change means that Lalo space at WAG would be reduced, but that artwork on display is now moved to the Main Gallery and, in the opinion of Bryane Lickson, Lalo’s Chief Curator and Jim Mayes, the result would be better visibility for Lalo artists.
Karen Weinberg, Lalo artist, now has her alcohol and ink on glass pieces on display in WAG’s Main Gallery. Her works went up on May 31, 2017 and will remain, unless sold, until mid-July. Bryane said she expects that Lalo will rotate member artists onto the new Lalo Wall in Luray so artists will have the benefit of their work being seen in WAG’s Main Gallery.
“While we’re a little sad at losing our own room at WAG in Luray, we’re delighted that we have moved to a wall in the Main Gallery,” said Bryane. “I think in the long run, this will be better exposure for Lalo artists,” she added.
Just in time for Christmas, 2016, a major art exhibition and sale opened at the Blue Wing Frog on Chester Street in Front Royal. “The food is wonderful,” “all natural,” “locally sourced products” are some of the comments from Lalo people and customers at the Blue Wing Frog.

Lalo’s “Call to Artists” Fall Show “Autumns Patchwork Quilt” has been postponed until Fall, 2017, due to technical circumstances beyond our control. We regret that it was necessary, however, we will have a Spring Call to Artists Show “Blossoms of Spring” prior to the Fall event in 2017. We will post the details of this as soon as they are available.
The interest, support and passion that each artist who entered the Fall 2016 “Call” shows that the mission of our organization to “Let Art Live On” is a vital one and that artists and others continue to be an integral part of maintaining the synergy that we share with one another.”
Lalo, Inc. and Shenandoah Senior Living (formerly Loving Arms) are pleased to announce an agreement in principle to feature rotating exhibits of art at the beautiful Warren Country, Virginia facility. The understanding between Tara Barnes, Community Relations Coordinator at the facility, and Bryane Lickson, Chair of the Board of Lalo, is an outgrowth of the Show and Exhibition presented by Lalo earlier this Spring.
