Tryst Gallery Launches Third Thursday Events

Tryst Gallery will host new Third Thursday events beginning Feb. 16, with each month focusing on a different topic and networking opportunity.

This Thursday’s event, 5:30-7:30 p.m., will feature a book signing and remarks by local author Linda Sittig, who’s novel, “Last Curtain Call,” is based on the 1894 coal strike in western Allegany County, MD. Bring your book to have it signed or purchase one from Sittig at the signing.

Other Third Thursday events will include artist demonstrations, gallery talks, musical performances, and book signings. Gallery owner Jim Sisley said he enjoys promoting all types of artistic endeavors and hopes visitors will appreciate the wide range of talent the area provides.

“Our goal at Tryst is to enhance the visitor experience and to change the dialogue about local art,” Sisley stated. “We have very talented artists in Loudoun County and we want to give them a platform to display their high-quality products in a unique environment.”

Tryst Gallery is located at 312 E. Market St. in Leesburg and is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 5:30-9 p.m. during First Fridays, 5:30-7 p.m. during Third Thursdays, or by appointment. See more information at
