The Virginia Discovery Museum supports local artists – and inspires budding artists – by featuring gallery shows in our Creation Station program room. Shows change every few months to feature a new artist and style. Artwork can be viewed Monday through Friday during open art studio hours from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m., September through May, and from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m., June through August. Galleries are occasionally open for viewing on Saturdays when Creation Station is open to the public. Displayed artwork is often available for purchase by contacting the artist directly.

About the Gallery

“An Observation in Play” is a collection of paintings and drawings completed over the course of 10 years focusing on the subject of childhood imagination.

Featured Artist: Sarah Miller

Show Runs from October – December 2019

Sarah Miller is a local Charlottesville, Va., artist who works primarily in watercolor, gouache, and pencil. She earned her BFA from Georgia Southern University in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking in 2011.

In her art, Sarah seeks to bring glory and integrity to the things – often seemingly mundane – seen and experienced by most on a daily basis. Illustrative portraits and still life are largely what she currently creates, but she continues to take in and learn from the world around her.

In addition to the pieces available for sale from “An Observation in Play,” Sarah offers custom commissions. To learn more and commission a piece, contact her at sarahmillercommissions@gmail.com.
