The Fine Gallery
Established in 2017 by Kaeley and Rusty Boyle, The Fine Gallery is a Contemporary Art Gallery in a familiar setting. At “Fine” we represent a collection of emerging artists that have shown at the ICA Boston, The Museum of Fine Arts, The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, The American Embassy in Nicaragua as well as a collection of galleries throughout New York, London and Beijing.
Photoworks ranks among the foremost photography businesses in the region. The National Park Service entrusts its historic art and photo collection to Photoworks for copy and restoration services, both for its archives and for distribution. Families trust Photoworks to create their most prized portraits, record their family history and events, and restore their treasured photographic memories. Businesses use their services for everything from corporate portraits to product shots, as well as architectural photography.
The owner-operators of Photoworks, KD Kidder and Neil Steinberg, have long been instrumental in developing the local arts, business, and education communities. KD is a co-founder of Leesburg's popular First Friday Gallery Walk. Now managed by the Leesburg Downtown Business Association. KD also serves on Leesburg's Public Arts Commission. She designed the first official public arts project, a photo display at the Leesburg airport for the town of Leesburg Public Arts Commission.
Throughout Photoworks’ 38-year-history, Neil and KD have encouraged and supported young people interested in photography, by sponsoring internships; routinely hosting shows of work by local students in their third-floor gallery; serving as judges for student photo competitions at area schools, Loudoun County 4H Fair,The Waterford Fair, and by offering summer camps for teens in film, darkroom, and digital photography.
A recent addition to the business following the closure of Art Square, KD Kidder and Neil Steinberg of Photoworks and Thomas Ramsay and Nancy Goetzinger of The Image Center founded the Leesburg School of Photography at Photoworks. The opening of a photography school is a long-term dream of Kidder.
The founders believe that the new school will become a significant milestone in the development of Leesburg's Arts and Cultural District,
The school will also give photographers of today and tomorrow a “community” in which to explore, learn and grow their talents and passion for art- right here in Leesburg.
On Display we have an historic Loudoun photograph collection, works of several local photographers, and paintings of Doris Kidder.
