Paintings by Edward Russell are on display in the Atrium Gallery through February.

The paintings in this exhibit were rendered in watercolor and gouache. Most of the scenes were found near Fredericksburg. Other locations include Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Montana.

Mr. Russell retired from the US Government in 1983 after serving thirty three years as Director-Curator, US Army Engineer Museum, Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

"We are not impotent- we pallid stones.
Not all our power is gone- not all our fame-
Not all the magic of our high renown-
Not all the wonder that encircles us-
Not all the mysteries that in us lie-
Not all the memories that hang upon
And cling around about us as a garment,
Clothing us in a robe of more than glory."
---From "The Coliseum" by Edgar Allan Poe
