Serving all Prince William County Artists*
Open Space Arts at Woodbridge is a fantastic opportunity for Prince William County artists and art groups to spread the word of an art presence for many creative people that want to be seen and heard.
There are a LOT of people behind Open Space Arts that made this gallery happen.
The Management Team of Stonebridge, JBG Smith Company and their Lead Property Manager, Anastasia Podorski worked with Herb Williams, the Parks and Recreation Specialist of PWC, and the decision was made of allowing a fine art gallery to be in an empty space at 15000 #140 Potomac Town Center, Woodbridge, VA. In turn, contact was made with the Prince William Art Society (PWAS), a non-profit art group that has been active in PWC for over 50 years to help "man" the gallery.
In actuality, the first art show in Open Space Arts took place on November 26 to December 12, 2021. The artists of PWAS setup the art show then displayed their art and hundreds of guests were thrilled, some shocked, and all very happily enjoyed the art on display. The duration of the show was only a few weekends at that time, but the seeds were sown at that point. (Or the paint was splattered!)
The gallery opened in April 2022 with the art of local PWC artists from around the county and continues to thrill all who visit. A typical exclamation is heard as someone walks by, "Is this an ART GALLERY??!!" And they come in and are welcomed by the artists working the desk (often with art up of their own).
There is a lot on our radar including workshops, classes, space rental, upcoming art shows, themes, and so much more. So stay tuned and watch for those Calls for Art if you are an artist and updates on what's next in this beautiful space for art.
