SUFFOLK, Va. – Multiple fun events are taking place at the Suffolk Art Gallery in February!

On February 7, begin your Valentine’s celebration early with a Paint Night, Paint Party with local artist Stephanie Gwaltney.

This event is for novice to professional painters. Gwaltney will provide instructions throughout the painting process to ensure your satisfaction and success. Participants are encouraged to bring their own snacks and alcohol-free beverages. Registration can be completed in person at the Suffolk Art Gallery, or online through the Suffolk Parks & Recreation website. Pre-registration is required and covers the cost of all materials. This event is $40 for ages 13 and up. The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Program registration ends on January 31.

On February 27 from 6 to 8:30 p.m., you can join the Suffolk Art Gallery and the Suffolk Art League for the annual Poetry, Prose, and Pizza event. Host Nathan Richardson will return to Suffolk for an open mic event.
