“I have had an ‘affair” with House Mountain, Lexington’s (and Rockbridge County’s) monolithic natural sculpture, stretching over sixty years, and in the latter half of that time I have dreamed of paying homage to it.”

- Harry Hathaway Warner

The Thoughtful Gift For Your Sophisticated Loved Ones: The Gift Certificate

Gift Certificate Cabell Gallery

A Gift Certificate from an art gallery is a thoughtful way to honor the sophistication of your loved ones. At Cabell Gallery we have a wide variety of one of a kind items to personalize your friends' spaces at price points for any occasion. By giving a Gift Certificate from an art gallery you are acknowledging that person's choices of surrounding themselves with unique, quality items, and complimenting them by not making the choice for them.

One of a kind, handmade objects have never been more sought after, and people understand that bringing items into your home or office that were made with the creativity and execution of skilled artists elevates the quality of life of those that come into contact with them. Cabell Gallery has the beautiful paintings that you would expect to find, but so much more that you may not automatically think of. We have unique jewelery, conversational accent sculptures of all sizes made of glass, ceramics, lamps, furniture made from reclaimed industrial materials, and all of it illustrates elements of design that describes a little about it's owner.

The gift certificate is also appropriate for all ages; including younger people. Teenagers love to decorate their rooms to their personalities, and being given the choice of quality art is something that they can be proud of their choice throughout their lifetime (not so sure about that Bieber poster). They will remember that you gave them an opportunity to make an adult purchase and develop their style.

This can be done completely online, over the phone, or you can come in for a visit. Most of our inventory is on our website, although jewelery and some pieces sell so frequently that it's hard to keep up with the changes. Remember that all purchases online or in the gallery come with a 14 day review period where you can live with the piece, and if you aren't completely in love with it, return it for a full refund (our return policy is available on our website).

Friday, August 7th 5:00-7:00 Linda Hollett Live Demonstration

VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Taking advantage of the beautiful weather today in Richmond, artist and VMFA docent Linda Hollett-Bazouzi paints our sculpture garden “en plein air”, a technique of painting outside to capture the natural light and movement of a place as it unfolds before the artist. Popular from the mid-19th century onward by many artists, including painters seen in our collection such as Monet and Pissarro. Where would you set up your easel on a day like today?

On Friday August 7th from 5:00pm - 7:30pm Linda Hollett will be here at the Cabell Gallery of Fine Art doing a live demo and sharing a selection of her recent plein air works! This show is a part of the First Fridays Lexington Downtown show series, so be sure to also visit Artists in Cahoots, Lexington VA and Nelson Gallery as you work your way down Washington St!

Before The Cabell Gallery : The Storied Past of 5 West Washington St.

Picture above: Family of Dabney C. Carver IV

We recently had the pleasure of meeting descendants of 5 West Washington Street's previous occupants...

Before the gallery was established, the building was used as a hair salon, and before that a law office for Larry Mann (blacksmith and husband of photographer Sally Mann), who's hand wrought sign hanger now holds our sign out front.  

This was as far back as spoken history had taken us until this past Saturday, when we had the privilege of meeting the family of Dabney C. Carver IV, who owned and operated Lexington Lighting and Electric Company here at 5 West Washington Street from 1976 until the late 1980's.  

Mr. Carver's daughter Carole Carver Avery, her husband Guy, and their two daughters Ellie and Molly stopped by the gallery last Saturday for a trip down memory lane.  Mrs. Avery noted the many changes to the space and reminisced about her summers spent behind the sales counter.  She also mentioned that the desk lamps sold in the store were a hot ticket item for local students at both VMI and Washington and Lee.  

We loved unlocking another chapter in the history of our great location at 5 West Washington St and would love to learn more!

Do you recall a memorable moment at 5 West Washington, if so, share it with us! Leave comments below or visit our Facebook page!
