Popular Fall Art Sale Returning to Bruton Parish House

WILLIAMSBURG — Paintings, jewelry, notecards, sculptures, and a plethora of other fine art will be on display at Bruton Parish House later this month when the Williamsburg Artist Group (WAG) returns for its popular fall show.

The event, to be held on Friday, Oct. 27, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., will feature the work of approximately 20 local artists.

Tables, easels, and grid walls will be filled with original two- and three-dimensional artwork by skilled artists and artisans. according to the group.

Lilyann Teifer, who joined WAG last year, said she was amazed by the diversity and quality of art on display.

“I didn’t know what to expect but was thrilled with the turnout and the interactions I had with people interested in my work,” she said. “I sold a painting I did of the Blue Talon restaurant to a woman who had spent a memorable evening there, and it meant a lot to both of us to actually meet face to face — unlike selling work through a gallery. I’m looking forward to doing it again!”

As artists have their own unique perspectives and styles that appeal to different people, WAG noted offerings may include hand-painted notecards, plein air landscapes, intricate colonial scenes, interpretations of ancient Mayan art, small and large sculptures, handcrafted jewelry, portraiture, art rendered in unusual mediums, vector-based paintings, and playful abstracts.

Some artists also offer prints of their original works and small unique items suitable for gift-giving, it added.

WAG was established in 2018 as a way for local artists to show their work outside a traditional gallery. Sales are usually held twice a year and the venues may change. As the organization has grown and become well known, the sales events have become increasingly popular in the community.

Visitors can get the backstory about art they are interested in directly from artists, who enjoy talking about their work.

“It’s a win-win opportunity for everyone there,” said Laurie Rokutani, a member of the WAG leadership team. “Prices also tend to be more affordable with this type of setup.”

This year, WAG will donate 10% of its total sales to the local charity FISH.

Bruton Parish House is located at 331 Duke of Gloucester St. WAG can be contacted at Its Facebook page also showcases artists’ work.
