Artist's Statement: Much of my love of the visual arts came about as a result of being legally blind for the first 13-years of life. Once I was able to see God's world clearly, I was imbued with a sense of awe I have never gotten over. We really do live on a beautiful planet, and I try to capture that beauty and sense of God's love for us in my art.
This July the Central Rappahannock Regional Library turns 40.

The England Run Library (named the Falls Run Library in the early stages of the project) is featured on the American Institute of Architects web site. Find out more about the innovative design of our newest library.
One of the main goals for the design of the England Run Library was to achieve a high level of sustainable design. We've done this through the use of recycled and non-toxic materials and energy-efficient lighting and design.
View the library's annual Teen Art Show, co-sponsored by It! Magazine, through June 29, in the Headquarters Atrium Gallery. The show is open to students in grades 9-12, who live in the city of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford or Westmoreland counties.
