Some days it’s fireworks. Other days, hula dancers and glass blowing demonstrations. You might even find craft beer tastings, live music, fire dancers, or plein air painting. You never know exactly what you’ll experience at the Workhouse Arts Center, but we’ll definitely delight your senses and inspire your creativity.

Join us from 6p-9p on the Second Saturday of each month to discover all the Workhouse Arts Center has to offer. Whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth, the Second Saturday Art Walk is the perfect time to meet nearly 100 Resident and Associate Artists, creating art in the studios or exhibiting in our galleries. Thrilling performances of dance, cabaret, comedy, big band, jazz, and theater. Indulgent classes in the art of mixology or cuisines from around the globe. Art exhibitions in nine galleries of the region’s finest sculpture, painting, glass, ceramics, and fiber art works.

All of this excitement – and more – is tucked away at the Workhouse Arts Center, a 55-acre visual and performing arts center in Lorton, VA, located on the historic grounds of the former DC Correctional Facility at Lorton.


W-5: Laura Bruce
Laura Bruce is the Workhouse Featured Artist in Building 5 for November. Come see her expressive paintings and sketches of different animals. “I love to try and capture the animals spirit by focusing on their eyes. By painting/seeing them up close, you can almost “hear” what they're thinking. You can tell a lot by looking into someones eyes, two-legged and four-legged. I feel a real connection when I paint/draw animals I only hope you can feel that emotion while looking at my work.”

An opening reception for Laura's exhibit will take place during November's Second Saturday Art Walk, November 11, from 6p-9p.

Her exhibit «The Eyes Have IT» will be on view in Building W-5 from November 8 through December 4, 2017. You can visit Laura in Studio 507A or explore her art online at
