The Artists' Alliance is a cooperative art gallery showing work from over 20 of the finest regional artists in painting, photography, encaustic, glass, basketry, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, and furniture. 

Jarrett Thor Fine Arts has been a working studio for regional artists and owner/artists Joyce and Carl Thor for over 10 years. Beginning in June, 2018, an Artists’ cooperative, the Artists’ Alliance (AA), has taken over management of suite 101, at the gallery. The AA consists of 20 members, working in the media of: painting (oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastel), photography, pottery, encaustic, stained glass, basketry, and jewelry.


Each month’s show includes a featured Artist of the Month. Exhibits change monthly, coinciding with Colonial Beach’s Second Friday Art Walk (6-9pm).

Beat the Heat with Cool Saturday Nite in Downtown Colonial Beach


Cool Saturday Nite is coming to the Colonial Beach downtown on Saturday, August 7, from 5-8 pm.  This summer’s punishing heat has made it difficult for visitors to navigate the downtown without melting.  Local businesses and community organizations decided to stage an event late in the day, when it will be cooler, and Cool Saturday Nite was born.


The event along Hawthorne and Taylor Streets and Washington Avenue, will feature shopping, art, food, and music.  Everyone will be open late to greet visitors.  Come out and join in the fun.
