A French-named art gallery in Albemarle County is sharing a new exhibit to help visitors get out of the winter doldrums and feel a little closer to spring.
Bright flowery paintings line the walls of Les Yeux du Monde on Wolf Trap Road.
The art gallery held a special Valentine's event Sunday afternoon and displayed the colorful works of local artist Ellen Hathaway.
“She is very intuitive she is a wonderful gestural artist burgeoning on abstract but still uses the flower as the vehicle,” says gallery owner Lyn Bowlen Warren.
The gallery's visitors were served Valentines chocolates in honor of the special day.
Hathaway's paintings sell from $300-$2,300.
The exhibit continues through next Sunday.
