HOUSE MOUNTAIN AFFAIR

HOUSE MOUNTAIN AFFAIR

House Mountain. It’s as much a part of the Lexington landscape as W&L or VMI. Maybe more…it’s been there longer. But something about that mountain seems to stay in Rockbridge County residents’ minds, and in their hearts. Perhaps Harry Hathaway Warner said it best when he said he’d been “having an affair with House Mountain…stretching over 60 years.” In fact, he wrote a book about it and you can own a copy yourself while helping to raise money to benefit House Mountain.

The book is called House Mountain Affair: A Personal Journal and Pictorial Study of the Signature Landmark of Lexington, Virginia, by Harry Hathaway Warner.

And this Friday, December 4th from 5:00pm to 7:30pm, Cabell Gallery welcomes local author Harry Hathaway Warner for a book signing, reception, and an exhibition of Virginia landscapes artwork. 

All proceeds from book sales will go to the Rockbridge Area Conservation Council to aid in their mission of protecting Rockbridge County’s natural treasures, including House Mountain. Those who purchase a book will also receive a voucher for a 10% discount on one Cabell Gallery item valid for 60 days following the event.   

It’s nice to support local authors and to have your money go to a deserving cause. But there is something magical about House Mountain, and to read Mr. Warner’s book makes you see that others, past and present, know that too. To own the book makes you feel as if you own a piece of the mountain itself. The way he invites you into his heart and hopes and dreams is so intimate. And yes, you get lots of beautiful pictures and maps and historical context, but Mr. Warner also shows you a piece of himself, the piece that has spent all these years in a House Mountain Affair.

“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

New artist show opening July 3 featuring Tom Tartaglino

 

Tom Tartaglino: Currently I paint real images. For the most part, they are from real life. I love real life. These works are observances of life. One gets to be a pretty good observer when holding a paint brush. There is a realism about today that I am trying to achieve in my paintings. It is not just the image but the psychology of the image. Good painting should hit you on levels beyond the image. That is my goal.

Introducing Curney Nuffer: Our Artist of the Month for February

On February 6th, during the Lexington Gallery Walk, Curney Nuffer will be doing a live demonstration of a still life oil painting. The event itself runs from 5pm until around 7pm, and Curney's demonstration will begin at 6pm. What will make this event unique, is Curney's single use of the palette knife to create the painting.

After this event, Curney's paintings will remain on "show" through the month of February. Bring out your partners, bring out your friends... and enjoy a winter evening out surrounded by incredible art.

A bit about Curney Nuffer...

Curney Nuffer was born in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 1951. He was educated at East Tennessee University and later relocated to Richmond where he began his art education initially through the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School and Virginia Commonwealth University.

His studio is located at The Fulton Hill Studios in Richmond and he also teaches classes locally. His art workshops in England, Italy and Portugal are popular travel-and-paint experiences for artists who want to enjoy plein air as well as still life painting in an art-rich environment.
