Meetings of the Art Advisory Committee

Members
The Art Advisory Committee's seven at-large members serve four-year terms which are concurrent with the Board of Supervisors. An employee of the county government serves as liaison between the government, Board of Supervisors and the committee.

Responsibilities
The Art Advisory Committee is responsible for an annual showing from the county's permanent art collection, handling of the portraits in the Loudoun County Courthouse, long term loans, arranging for the conservation and care of the collection in county facilities, and group shows of local artists. These exhibitions take place in the center's lobby-level art gallery and in the Lovettsville Conference Room.

Exhibitions
Yearly exhibitions include the exhibition of artwork from the permanent collection and the Loudoun Sketch Club. Periodically, the committee also offers special exhibitions for county government employee artists, Loudoun County Public School students, local art academies, and other professional and emerging local artists.

Committee Background
The Loudoun County Art Advisory Committee (AAC) was created by the Board of Supervisors in 1978 to collect and display works of art that reflect the diverse Loudoun community. The AAC manages a large and growing permanent and loaned art collection as well as producing six art exhibits each year.

The collection consists of artwork from Loudoun County artists and subject matter relative to the county and has been developed through gifts of the artist or by donors who purchased works for the county government.  All works have been approved by the Art Advisory Committee to provide a collection of works of professional quality and an inventory is on file. The collection of approximately 80 pieces includes works in oil, acrylic, pen and ink, and charcoal. Three sculptures by local artists, donated to the county in 1996, were placed in the center's gardens in 2005.

Many of the pieces in the collection are available for viewing in the hallways of the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison St. S.E. in Leesburg.
