WILLIAMSBURG — The “Art at Wessex Hundred” series at Williamsburg Winery continues as the weather warms up for spring with new art on display starting March 31 until June 11.

The new show of the series is titled “Spring Reflections.” This is the fourth rotation of artwork in the “Art at Wessex Hundred” exhibit that debuted in April. Two additional changes of artwork are slated for the remainder of 2023.

“Art at Wessex Hundred” features the work of over 35 artists from this region. The work includes paintings in oil, acrylic, pastels, and watercolor; textile art; mixed media and collages; and art photography.

The exhibit has been organized by and managed by The Art People (TAP) — a three-person volunteer group from the Williamsburg-area arts community: Cary Garnet and
Mary and Jim McCormick.

“Since it opened a year ago, there have been around 80 pieces sold,” Mary McCormick said.

The public is invited to an Opening Reception for “Spring Reflections” on April 13. The evening will include art, wine, and jazz. Music will be provided by the Tony Mata Jazz Duo; there will be a cash wine bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvres, and an opportunity to chat with the artists and learn what inspired the artwork on display.

The event will be from 6-8 p.m. in the Williamsburg Winery Tasting Room. The current display for “Art at Wessex,” “Winter Romance,” is still available for viewing until the start of the new show on March 31. For more information about Williamsburg Winery, check out its official website.
