About the Artist

“I have always lived by the sea and many of its shores. The energy, passion, and ever-changing beauty of the ocean inspire my seascapes. My concern for the sand dunes, marine life, and their fragile environment is evident in many of my paintings. I hope that my work will inspire preservation so that their beauty will be seen by generations to come.”

The Artists Gallery
An Artist’s Cooperative since 1989

Constance Fahey is a founding member of The Artists Gallery. What began in 1987 as a group of 8 artists who banded together to create affordable studio spaces by sharing maintenance costs, space and equipment has expanded many times over. Nearing 30 years as a cooperative, the group recently merged with the Virginia Beach Artist Center and moved into a larger space that accommodates artists and clay sculptors in a new home together in the ViBe Creative District of Virginia Beach.
