Dr. Richard Neff

Artist of the Year was announced at the annual VAS Holiday open-house on December 14.  Dick Neff was named Artist of the Year by the VAS committee consisting of the Executive board and the past presidents and awardees. He is best know as a prolific Impressionists painter.  He has been active with VAS almost 10 years most recently acting as our Treasurer.  Dick exhibits regularly with the Vienna Arts Society.  He is also a bluegrass musician and invites his group Difficult Run String Band to perform at the VAS Art Center.  These “practices” are open to public, often to standing room only.

This past summer Dr. Neff was an integral member who with other VAS members started a Plein Air painting group.  They invited members and interested painters to paint outside and enjoy our boastful Northern Virginia landscape.
