Stop by our Newport News Office on November 6th for a champagne art reception! At Liz Moore & Associates we love where we live, and we are excited to announce that we have commissioned local artist Bob Oller to capture our favorite places!

Recently we decided to commission Bob to create permanent paintings for each of our offices that will depict some of our favorite places. Join us at our Newport News Office on Monday November 6th from 4-6 PM to learn about Bob’s work and watch him debut the new collection.
