about the tourThe Linda Matney Gallery is dedicated to hosting exhibitions of innovative emerging artists, as well as displaying the work of more established national and international artists, including works of painting, installation, video, photography, sculpture and performance. The primary concern of The Linda Matney Gallery is to exhibit the work and ideas of the most significant artists of our time.
Liz Moore and Associates is not your average real estate company. Our mission is to deliver an extraordinary experience to our clients, and we do that by hiring the best and the brightest agents and support staff, training relentlessly, and committing to constantly reinvent our company to insure the highest level of service.
Why new homes and art you may ask? Artists throughout our community are always searching for venues in which to display their talent. The bare walls of new homes offer the perfect venue for them to do so. And in many ways, these beautiful newly constructed masterpieces are in themselves a work of art.
We invite you to enjoy each stop. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet and learn more about the talented craftspeople who are your neighbors. Explore each home and feel free to ask questions of the real estate professionals who are hosting. Sample wonderful wines and light refreshments along the way.

Bob CarlsonBob has been a practicing artist for over 40 years, exhibiting throughout the mid-Atlantic region. He enjoys the directness and process of easel painting, choosing images to paint as much for their formal qualities as their subject matter. A common element in his work is the exploration of the effects of light, particularly as it plays upon and through water or glass, and on various surfaces. He enjoys the process of creating, the production of an object that may bring satisfaction or a new perspective to its viewer, and sharing his work with others. This provides his motivation to paint. His art opens him up to those who see it, and he hopes that revelation is both a pleasurable and expanding one. His work is primarily in oil, although he also paints in acrylic, when he ventures out of the studio to do plein air paintings on an inviting day.
Gloria CokerGloria Coker was an illustrator for the Daily Press newsroom for twelve years before pursuing her career as a professional fine artist. Her loose and vivid acrylics and oils capture her feelings about people of all ages as they engage in their passions and everyday activities. She displays her art in galleries in Virginia, North Carolina and California. Ms. Cokers art is in many collections throughout the US and Europe, including Ernie Els, JoAnn Falletta, Tom Clancy and Fuzzie Zoeller. She has taught classes in watercolor at CNU, TNCC, and Peninsula Fine Art Center and through UV continuing education. Her awards are numerous. Although her academic background includes a BA in psychology and a Masters in Counseling from William and Mary, she now devotes full time to her art. She has two grown children and lives in Virginia with her husband.

Christi HarrisIn these works, I am exploring imagery about domesticity through traditional womens work. I am incorporating sewing and embroidery in addition to traditional collage and mixed media work. I am fascinated by vintage womens magazines and their representation of women. There is always a ring on her finger, and she is always smiling while pontificating on the gloriousness of a new cleaning product or household invention. The historical placement of these ads contradicts many social issues, such as women in the workplace, harassment, birth control, children conceived out of wedlock, spousal abuse, incest, and rape. I am interested in the inherent contradictions of a happy housewife in any era and especially the continuity of these expectations within our society. It seems no matter how much things change, they stay the same.

Jones artwork seeks to be fundamentally modern and at the same time draws on an understanding of the classical art of the ancient Mediterranean region. Jones paintings are abstract and tend toward the large-scale; the
