Please, all my dear friends, say a prayer for my brother Buck (Dan) who will have surgery this Wednesday for lung cancer. He was recently diagnosed and has to have a portion of his left lung removed.
Up Against the Wall in Kingsport, Tennessee, is some gallery! Everything is so beautifully done. My daughter Mary went with me to our show last weekend and enjoyed looking at the jewelry and dishes that Lisa Anne Milhorn loves to carry. Her husband Mike had me on four different TV interviews in different towns on Friday to help launch my new print of Kingsport’s carousel. By Friday night, we were so ready to sit down at their beautiful log cabin home in front of the fireplace and have a relaxing dinner together.

This coming weekend’s show at my Blacksburg gallery will be my last signing event of the year. We’re all looking forward to it. I’ll be signing this Saturday, December 20, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 21, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. For more information, please contact the gallery at 540-552-6446.
There will also be performances by members of the Renaissance Music Academy (RMA) of Virginia at the gallery on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. David Ehrlich and his wife Teresa run the RMA, which is the oldest, largest, and most established non-profit community music school in southwest Virginia. Founded in 1993, the RMA offers serious study for ages two through adult. David is also a Fellow of Fine Arts at Virginia Tech.
The Whitaker family members are students of the RMA and performed at our Blacksburg gallery recently. Click here for a short video of them playing at the gallery.
Come enjoy the arts with us!
