Are you looking to shop for fine art in Loudoun? Take a break from the big box stores and stop by the Gateway Gallery for some truly special Christmas gifts this year. Last weekend I stumbled onto Gateway Gallery, a unique gift shop in Round Hill. My planned stop at Hill High Orchards for a slice of heavenly coconut crème pie got delayed when I saw the sign next door for this little gem of a gift shop. Inside there were delightful pewter bowls and wine bottle coasters, handmade wooden bowls, stunning photography, unique jewelry collections, textiles, glass. The Gateway Gallery is home to an eclectic collection of fine art from 30+ local Loudoun County artists. Located just off Route 7 at Hill High Orchards (directly across from Stoneleigh Golf Course), the Gateway Gallery is open Wed. through Sunday 11-6. 540-338-3001 www.thegatewaygallery.com
At Hill High Orchards you can enjoy a warm slice of pie and coffee before or after shopping. Looking for something more relaxing? Enjoy a glass of wine at Bogati Vineyard next door.
