The four of us have painted individually for a number of years. We began painting together nearly eight years ago when introduced to a studio and gallery in Richmond, For Arts Sake, owned by internationally known artist Anne Chaddock. Through Anne we have taken painting trips to France, Ireland, and Italy. We have shown as a group at Studio A, Salem Church Library, Keystone Coffee, and Headquarters Library. As individual artists our paintings have been selected for juried shows at FCCA and Liberty Town in Fredericksburg as well as Crossroads Gallery and For Arts Sake in Richmond. We have entered the Fredericksburg Fine Arts Show and King George Art Guild Show.
Artwork on exhibit through October.

Film noir is not easily defined. The actual words come from French and mean "black cinema." It was in France during the post-war years that the term was used to describe a certain set of Hollywood films that were saturated with a darkness and cynicism that was not seen before. These movies included The Maltese Falcon (1941), Double Indemnity (1944), Laura (1944), and Murder, My Sweet (1944).
