Historic Occoquan is a community rich in history and consists of residents, artists, shops, restaurants, businesses, and a local town government.  It's outdoor dining, ghost walks, town boat dock and more are located just 11 miles south of the Capital Beltway on I-95 at exit 160 and then north on Gordon Blvd/Rte 123 to Commerce Street.  Directions to Historic Occoquan are available at Google Maps.

Occoquan is located at 38°40′58″N, 77°15′39″W and is accessible by car, boat, raft, bike, and foot traffic.  Access is available by road, river and the East Coast Greenway.

Occoquan is also conveniently located just minutes from the Amtrak Auto Train stop in Lorton, VA.  Unlike a plane or the car, the auto train provides onboard entertainment, a lounge car and a dining car as it takes both you and your vehicle on a stress free journey to Florida.  So when you next consider a trip to Florida, please remember your opportunities of shopping and dining in Historic Occoquan before you depart or upon your return.

The Town of Occoquan can be explored by this aerial view where you can click on shops and business for more information or you can access an on-line map of the town which includes a little bit of history and is provided by the Business Guild of Occoquan.  For even more history, the Historic Occoquan Self Guided Walking Tour has been made available with the permission of LaVerne Carson.

Still Life and From Life
Paintings by Deena Hunkler-Sanks and Sculptures by Francesca Di Lorenzo

  • Still Life and From Life showcasing the artists Francesca Di Lorenzo and Deena Hunkler-Sanks compares and contrasts their paintings and sculptures which express the many aspects of life.  Deena’s traditional oil paintings which include Trompe L’oeil reflect “still life” and Francesca’s traditional sculptures are reflective of her interpretations “from life”.   
  • Deena Hunkler-Sanks – Deena collects memories and tells stories weaving together bits and pieces of peoples’ lives to present a rendition of their story captured in her paintings.  Old photographs, keepsakes, and memorabilia are included in her still life scenes.  A glance shows the beauty of a time past… a closer look tells the story.  
  • Francesca Di Lorenzo – Francesca’s sculptures are from life using live models to capture the nuances of the human figure in the traditional sculptural style dating back to the Greeks.  Her sculptures celebrate the beauty and differences of life as depicted in her interpretation of the human form.  This sculpting process of interpreting life using clay gives her deep satisfaction and joy during this unique process which results in a terra cotta or bronze piece of sculpture. 
  • To see more of Deena’s and Fran’s works go to The Loft Gallery  and Facebook page, The Loft Gallery of Occoquan.
