Krista Townsend’s The Art of BEING a HERo
The Art of BEING a HERo reveals moments in the lives of women who are living true to their values in their everyday actions. These are portraits of strong women in settings that represent individual power. True heroism is often remarkably unassuming and means being herself without apology.

Rural landscapes from Maine to Florida
Downstairs South Hall Gallery:
John Trippel’s Do You Live Here?
Highland, Ash Lawn, 30×44,” oil on cotton duck
This group of paintings are the result of time spent at home after retiring. This group are cut from scenes seen in the Mid-Atlantic area. They are all oils which I do have a knack for making well. It comes from 40 years’ experience and 11 years of after High School time spent in colleges and Art Schools on the college level. These paintings came slow, but they arrived by way of working 2.5 hrs per day for a year come hell or high water.
