The Annual Business Awards Ceremony is Leesburg's premier business event. More than 250 business representatives come together each year as the best and brightest in the Leesburg business community are recognized. We cleaned up from a full day of work, electric with excitement to attend the event and headed to the Tally Ho Theatre in Downtown Leesburg. We met all the hard working business owners and their staff or associates and could not help but notice an air of "small town; big dreams" about the room. Each person there had an idea, a dream, to create a business in this small community. The dream wasn't only to create a successful business but a successful kinship with its residents. I mean at the end of the day, we all live in this town and feel it just as important to make it as a business as we do a good neighbor.
The Ambassador Awards Nominee specifications are to be a business or organization that has promoted a positive image of Leesburg as a business location or tourist destination. If you have ever been to any of the establishments of the nominees, you will know there was some tough competition. The Cooley Gallery was nominated along with:

The Gallery represents so many talented artist and to be nominated and awarded is a proud moment for the gallery. We feel we foster the artwork that hangs on our walls or sits on our tables; it is you who finds that perfect piece to take to its forever home. Art is not something you rush into, it is an investment that, in time builds faith to purchase. If you have not done so already, please visit us at the gallery, take a look around and ask us questions. We love to talk about art and listen to why you love it or want to love it. Honestly though, we want to get to know our neighbors and continue to provide a service that is much needed in any town, the beauty of art and all it has to offer. Whether it is a coffee mug or a canvass your piece is a reflection of your inner child….let it run wild.
In closing we want to say thank you to each and every person who has come to our gallery. Whether it has been in the past, whether it be in the future or on a regular basis, we are who we are because of our clients.
A Whole Hearted Thank You,
The Cooley Gallery
