The big news is that not only is April about Andre Lucero, but Andre is actually doing a physical demonstration of plein aire painting. He will be doing this in Lexington, VA next door to our gallery in the courtyard of Haywood's at the Georges Hotel. Join us on saturday, the 4th of April from 3-5pm for this free oil painting demonstration by one of Virginia's most well-known fine artists.

About Andre:  "Painting is my passion. I was trained in a more traditional academic setting receiving a BFA, cum laude degree in 1989, and soon after built a successful career producing numerous award winning illustrations for many national publications. In recent years, I have dedicated myself to a painting career combining my love of the outdoors with my art. It is most exciting attempting to capture on the spot the way light falls on a beautiful scene or a fleeting aspect of nature."    ~ Andre Lucero

About Haywoods at The Georges: 

"The Georges occupies two buildings on opposite sides of Main Street in Lexington, Virginia, a special town steeped in history and, for us, many wonderful memories. Located in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Lexington is truly a charming small-town escape. We love that the two buildings that make up our inn are unique pieces of the past, revitalized with fine accommodations for our guests to enjoy today. The Georges is home to Haywood’s, our casual yet lively piano bar serving farm to table cuisine and TAPS, our lobby lounge and special events venue.

When we acquired these buildings, we wanted to devote our resources, passion, and energy toward creating an inn and restaurants we think you’ll really enjoy. Our intention is to offer a place of comfort, traditional Virginia hospitality, and delicious food with regional ingredients—all in an environment that carries the history of the last couple of hundred years in its bones, and now with every modern amenity and convenience."   ~ from About paage on their website...
