A WOMAN'S JOURNEY OPENING POSTPONED BUT NOT CANCELLED
We can't let Covid-19 stop this display of inspiring artworks and thoughtful statements by the artists whose work has been hanging unseen on the walls of the FCA Gallery since March. Although we have had to postpone the opening night reception, gallery viewing hours, and two videos and a lecture related to the show, we plan to pick right up where we paused as soon as it is safe to do so.

Keep watching for announcements about when we'll resume operations and celebrate the artists whose works are telling the stories of "A Woman's Journey."
"VIRTUS" BY JOANNA CAMPBELL BLAKE AT FCA GALLERY  WHEN IT REOPENS
Falls Church Arts is honored to have the work of Joanna Campbell Blake featured at the FCA Gallery. Joanna, a gifted sculptor who was married to local resident Isaac Blake, died in a motorcycle accident in Italy in 2016, just as her career in figurative sculpture had taken off.
