A fine art gallery - a big deal right? So there had to be some significant occurrences leading to the inspiration to create such an enterprise. The details of this story can be found on Cabell Gorman's website. Click here to see Cabell's "My Inspiration" page. Additionally, the story has been published as a book and is available online through Amazon.com: A Young Life of Light.
Meet Cabell Gorman, owner / CEO
Cabell received her BS in Art and Sociology from Hollins University in Roanoke, VA. Cabell's extensive business career began as owner and operator of a candle manufacturing company called Candles by Cousins. Cabell's role expanded to include sales, marketing, production; essentially all aspects of running a business. Since then, Cabell initiated many fundraising events: organizing, chairing and leading. Examples include: SPCA, Alexander Graham Bell Association, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA), Reach Out and Read, and Catholic charities, just to name a few. At Rawls museum in Courtland, Virginia, Cabell was their "Artist in Residence". Cabell has many outstanding awards and solo art shows to her credit. It was during this satisfying period of her life when she painted and successfully sold her own art (cabellgorman.com) that Cabell concurrently served as a docent at the VMFA in Richmond, Virginia.
Cabell currently resides in Richmond with her husband and two dogs. Her son, Jack, is attending Virginia Military Institute. With both her parents and her son in Lexington, Cabell seems to always find herself drawn back to beautiful Rockbridge County.
It was with this, and the inspiration mentioned above, that Cabell decided to open an art gallery in historic downtown Lexington, Virginia. This fine art collection is the culmination of all these experiences. Welcome to the Cabell Gallery.
Meet Susan Groves, Curator / Director
Susan is an alumna of Goucher College in Baltimore with a BA in Communications. A life long lover of art, Susan grew up in Lexington but ended up moving all over the United States in her job as a radio DJ and Programmer. She collected art from all her travels, and after 25 years away, decided Lexington was where she wanted to be. She moved back and began her journey at the Cabell Gallery in 2015. She still enjoys an occasional appearance on local radio and her job as an adjunct instructor at Dabney S Lancaster Community College. Her main joy, however, is in finding emerging artists and sharing this regions incredible artistic talent with all the patrons of the Cabell Gallery. That and, of course, her family. Susan resides in Rockbridge County, Virginia with her husband Kevan, her two cats, her two dogs and occasionally her globe trotting parents.
Meet Christian Worth, Gallery Assistant
Christian joined the gallery in 2017 after relocating to Lexington with her family, fulfilling the dream of so many Washington & Lee graduates to return to this beautiful area. The first painting to go up in their new home was of a view of House Mountain, a wedding gift that inspired the acquisition of many more Virginia landscapes. An attorney in her “former life”, Christian finds the more relaxed atmosphere of Cabell Gallery a welcome change. She loves hearing visitors share their special connections to Lexington and interviewing featured artists about what inspires their work for the website blog. Christian and her husband share their home with one dog, two children, three cats, and too many paintings to count.
