Wires were being bent, watches broken, and the scent of hot glue was in the air. The chatter of teens and a few adult artists filled the air as copiously as the junk that littered the table. The sounds and sights of books being “remade” were a little bit unnerving even to the librarians that planned the program, but there was no doubt about it – Steampunk’d Books at the Salem Church Library was a hit.

The four of us have painted individually for a number of years. We began painting together nearly eight years ago when introduced to a studio and gallery in Richmond, For Arts Sake, owned by internationally known artist Anne Chaddock. Through Anne we have taken painting trips to France, Ireland, and Italy. We have shown as a group at Studio A, Salem Church Library, Keystone Coffee, and Headquarters Library. As individual artists our paintings have been selected for juried shows at FCCA and Liberty Town in Fredericksburg as well as Crossroads Gallery and For Arts Sake in Richmond. We have entered the Fredericksburg Fine Arts Show and King George Art Guild Show.
Artwork on exhibit through October.
