Dear Friends,


Oftentimes I am slow to answer where home is. When communities such as Ashland, Kentucky open their doors and give me such a warm welcome, I find I have another home. Like all places where it has been a long time between my visits, growth had come to Ashland, but in a positive fashion. My time there last Friday and Saturday was filled with renewal and joy.  I was greeted upon arrival by Ann Wiseman, who had carefully orchestrated the painting and print, Bicentennial Blessing, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the First Presbyterian Church of Ashland. As we gathered in the fellowship hall of this church for the print release, I could sense how deeply these people cared for one another.


I was completely surprised when Steve Gilmore, the mayor of Ashland, came to the show. He presented me with a key to the city to accompany a proclamation stating that Friday, June 21st was P. Buckley Moss Day in the City of Ashland. The love I felt from this community and congregation was palpable, and to say I was honored is an understatement. I am really looking forward to returning to this city and I hope that it will be in the very near future.

Exceptional accommodations were provided by the Governor’s Inn Bed & Breakfast. This Inn was the former home of Governor Simeon Willis, a prominent Kentuckian who also served as a justice on the state’s highest court. It was wonderful seeing all the well preserved old homes in the city, and a delight to stay in one.


Speaking of home, in a mere 2 weeks I will be returning to where it all began for me, Waynesboro, Virginia. The Summer Barn Show & Gallery Open House begins on Friday, July 12th and runs through Sunday, July 14th. I know that with each Barn Show I say it is the best time of year to visit Waynesboro, but with the long summer evenings upon us, it really is true. The Moss Gallery of Waynesboro is excited to be releasing my new print, Summer at Monticello. This print is available for preorder by contacting the gallery at 540-949-6473. Additionally, I will be hosting the Moss Foundation for Children’s Education’s Fundraising Dinner at my home on Providence Lane on the evening of July 13th. I am pleased to hear that ticket sales have been brisk for this event. I hope that we can help a lot of children this year. If you still would like to attend this very special dinner, please contact the Foundation office at 800-430-1320. I’ll put a chair out for you.


Summer at Monticello, my new print to be released at the Waynesboro Gallery, 329 W. Main St. When you stop by to purchase your print, ask about framing options. Corrado does beautiful work and will be happy to assist you in deciding what framing will work best for your home.


The Moss Society continues its mission of lending a helping hand in their local communities. What started out as a group of enthusiastic art collectors in 1987, continues today appreciating art but more importantly, helping others lives improve. Such is the case when Richmond’s Moss on the James recently presented Change the World RVA a check for $5,600.00. This 501 (c) (3) organization provides a comprehensive program to address the needs of homeless high school and college students in the Richmond area. This is an all-volunteer group that helps students in 5 key areas: Academic Enhancement, Food & Hygiene Pantries, Mentoring, Leaving the Nest (transition to college), and Celebrations. Thank you Moss on the James for making a difference.
