Cabell Gallery Receives "Best of Virginia 2019" Honor

Virginia Living magazine, a source for “celebrating all things Virginia” has distinguished Cabell Gallery of Virginia Art as one of the best art galleries in the Commonwealth. In a reader survey conducted in January 2019, 45,000 people voted in over 100 categories including Shopping, Food & Drink, Entertainment, and the Arts. The top three establishments in each category are featured in the magazine’s current May issue, Best of Virginia 2019. Lexington, Virginia businesses took many of the awards spanning multiple categories, including a second place honor for the Cabell Gallery of Virginia Art in the “Best Art Gallery” section.

Lexington, Virginia has much to offer visitors and residents alike. Not only are there award-winning restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues, but the scenery and location among the Blue Ridge Mountains is breathtaking. The beauty of the area is often captured by Virginia-native artists. The Cabell Gallery of Virginia Art has carefully curated works featuring the local and regional landscapes and cityscapes by these artists, which is no doubt one of the reasons they earned a “Best of Virginia 2019” award.

Come visit the gallery to see why they are named one of the best in the Commonwealth and take a piece of Lexington, Virginia home with you.

If you've ever met Dick Fowlkes, then you two are friends. He never seems to forget a person and he is the kind of guy who that you just instantly want to be around. When you meet him, I guarantee he will spend the first 5 minutes figuring out the “three degrees of Dick Fowlkes” in how he knows someone who knows you!

He has been extremely successful in his "day job" creating and selling ties through his company Peter-Blair Accessories based in Richmond, where he also has his men's clothing boutique Peter-Blair. But if you didn't know that Dick also is a very accomplished painter, well then, as they say, you don't know Dick.

Dick's known nationwide for his neckties, but his heart will always be here in Virginia. He lives in Richmond, but spends every moment he can at his weekend home in Brownsburg. With as much time as he spends here in Rockbridge County he really knows the mountains. He can forage for wild mushrooms and asparagus with the best of them!

Dick’s intimacy with the landscape really shows in his paintings. His fun, contemporary, whimsical style is mixed with the love he expresses when he paints. What you get is a treasure. It is art that isn't just about looking pretty over your couch, it's art that makes you feel. Perhaps that is why his art is so appealing to collectors, it's not something you can judge from first glance, rather, you'll find it unfolds its story over time.

Get to know him. It can be certain that if you have the chance to spend some time with Dick Fowlkes, you’ll want to hang out with the guy. If you have a chance to spend some time with his paintings, well, then you’ll want to know him.
