The Fairfax Station Railroad Museum is proud to host the Art Guild of Clifton for an annual exhibit featuring themes inspired by the local area. Fairfax Station and Clifton have direct ties dating back more than 150 years. Clifton Station—originally designated Devereux Station—was a stop on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad that also serviced Fairfax Courthouse.
Pieces represent a range of styles and media, including painting, photography, and jewelry art. Works draw from local historic and natural themes reflecting the history, architecture, flora and fauna, and landscape of Northern Virginia. All pieces are available for sale through the Art Guild. Select items also are available through the Station's Gift Shop.
The mission of the Guild—a cadre of multi-media artists in oils, acrylics, and watercolors, photography, fiber arts, jewelry, pottery, and ceramics—is to foster the arts by cultivating the creative capital of Clifton and promoting the talents of our local artists and artisans. Its goal is to provide opportunities for local artists and expose the visiting public to the arts through education, exhibits and events. The museum is pleased to support this goal through annual sponsorship of this event.
