“Making Connections” at Pamplin Depot

Published 4:30 pm Tuesday, November 9, 2010

“Making Connections” with former exhibitors and newcomers is the theme of the first annual one-day art show and sale to be held Saturday, November 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Pamplin Depot freight room.

Among the anticipated artists who will have their works on display, there will be nine former exhibitors — Thomas Chalfant, Nina Eagle, the Rev. Willie Green, Petr Liska, Cheryl Lynn, Gloria Richardson, Bernice Sprinkle, Margaret Whorley, and Virginia Williams. These artists will have on exhibit and for sale works in oil, water color, acrylic, photography, and other mediums.

Visitors to the Pamplin Depot Library will remember seeing the works of Thomas Chalfant, Philip Frisbe, the Rev. Willie Green, and Margaret Whorley on permanent display. Frisbe's sketch of the Pamplin Depot is featured on the Pamplin town seal and on the souvenir T-shirts that are available for purchase. Whorley's works are two watercolors of scenes along the streets of Pamplin. The other landscapes are of a lighthouse painted by the Rev. Willie Green and of a railroad bridge painted by Thomas Chalfant.
