Reflections Of Spring!

City Of Fairfax Hosts Spotlight On The Arts ~ Art Beautique Event At Sherwood Center




Reflections Of Spring! ~ Opening Art Reception With Irish Céilí Music & Entertainment: You are invited to a free wine and cheese art opening reception and concert on Saturday, May 10 from 7 to 9 PM

, where you will be able to meet the artist, Larry Oskin. This Céilí event will share music, dancing, singing and storytelling from Ireland. Síor-Óg will perform the music of O’Carolan and old masters. Shepherd’s Pie Céilí Band will play. Shannon Dunne will offer Sean-nós ‘old-style’ dancing, while Aoibhneas Rince School of Irish Dance will have step dancers perform. The Tuesday Night Céilí Club will invite the audience to join in a dance. Beth Benedetto will perform songs while Penelope Fleming and Voices In The Glen will share Irish stories.

Larry Oskin ~ Featured Artist: Reflections Of Spring! will share a new fine art photography collection to celebrate spring beauty by Larry Oskin of Art Beautique. Oskin strives to celebrate the pure beauty of flowers, landscapes, cityscapes, women and animals. His Art Beautique images look like contemporary impressionistic paintings, using bright, bold and vivid colors.  His work is digitally enhanced to balance Oskin’s strong sense of color, layout and design with objective and non-objective abstract expressionism. Oskin shares his Art Beautique photography images as a dedicated color and field theorist. He truly remains inspired by beauty; whether from the human form or from nature itself.

Oskin shares, “Spring is always a great time to celebrate beauty. Everyone enjoys the absolute pleasure derived from seeing beautiful flowers, animals, sunrises, sunsets, people and picturesque landscapes. My Art Beautique images remain very stylized with a technique I created, called ‘Photo Impressionism’. I believe that fine art photography remains one of our best artistic forms of visual expression. I search to share what we can see, sense and feel, yet not always touch! With photography, we can share the instant of a beautiful sunrise, sunset and cloud, which may only otherwise be a mere quick memory. We are able to enjoy the memory of smiles, happiness, sorrow, love, warmth, friendship, beauty, romance and spirit as well as to remember the unique joy we may have experienced from a complete array of emotions. A picture may only be worth 1000 words, while little else will compare when you are able to capture any special moment in time!”

Originally from Buffalo, New York, Oskin has exhibited his original limited edition professional artwork in private art galleries and city museums including the famous Albright-Knox Art Gallery of Buffalo, NY. He has regularly exhibited his fine art collections within Northern Virginia and Washington, DC art galleries. Earlier in his career, Oskin was Director of Marketing for Circle Fine Art, which at the time was respected as the world’s largest fine art publisher and art gallery chain, where he provided marketing for Peter Max, Erté, Yaacov Agam, Norman Rockwell, LeRoy Neiman, Marcel Mouley, Walt Disney Studios and many internationally respected artists. Oskin is also owner of Marketing Solutions as a full-service marketing, graphic design, photography and PR agency specializing in the professional beauty and medical industries. This Spotlight On The Arts exhibit will also be his ‘Farewell Fairfax’ art show, as he will soon be moving to Clermont, Florida.

The Stacy C. Sherwood Community Center, located at 3740 Old Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA 22030. For more information on this art show and the Fairfax Spotlight On The Arts, visit or contact Larry Oskin at 703-359-6000, You can also visit: and

Reston Center 2 – Main Floor Lobby

12005 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston

Reston At Fifty, A Celebration In Pictures, will exhibit large photographs of the community of Reston. The show coincides with the 50th anniversary of Reston. It will also serve to introduce Jim's book by the same name, which will be available as a print-on-demand book through and as an ebook through the Apple iBookstore. Jim's photographs of the planned community of Reston are a pictorial celebration of the new town, including the natural beauty, the architecture, the people, and the culture of the community. Most of the photographs were taken in the last five years and depict Reston today, as he sees his home town at fifty.

Jim Kirby has lived in Reston, Virginia for over thirty years. His photography career began on arrival, working first as a photojournalist with The Reston Times, where he honed his skills as a visual storyteller and in the process won nine Virginia Press Association Awards for Excellence in Photography. Jim began working as a freelance photographer in 1984, shooting advertising and editorial assignments for corporations, magazines, and ad agencies. That same year, he photographed and designed the book, Reston, The First Twenty Years, a volunteer effort with other Reston residents, including writer Tom Grubisich. The proceeds from the book helped found the Reston archive at George Mason University Library. In 2009, Jim published his first solo book, Harpers Ferry, A Crossroads in Time. Published by Mountain Trail Press, the book tells the remarkable story of the historic West Virginia town with photographs and words. When he is not shooting pictures, Jim enjoys kayaking on the Potomac River, hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and running the miles of pathways in Reston.
