Oldway Art Center

Description

Oldway Art Center, founded by glassblower Eric Kvarnes, is located on the site of the former 26 acre Sperryville truck junkyard . After years of clean up, remodeling of original buildings, and the addition of 3 new buildings, Oldway is a work in progress, and continues to expand.

Oldway also offers art studio rental space for local artists. Our spaces occasionally open up for new artists, but generally all are occupied.

Today in Aviation History
May 25, 1927: Lt. James A. Doolittle files the first outside loop in a Curtiss P-1-B pursuit plane at McCook Field. Starting at an altitude of 8000 ft Doolittle pointed the nose of the a/c down and describes a circle of 2000 ft diameter, leveling out at his original altitude. At the bottom of the circle, flying inverted, it is estimated that his a/c was traveling at 280 mph. The outside loop had not been previously attempted because of fear that the a/c would disintegrate. [Note: French pilot Pegoud is purported to have performed outside loops prior to this date.]
