This exhibit features two regional artists whose paintings reflect the faces and places of yesterday and today. Historical and current portraits, landscapes and rustic buildings are brought to life through the brush strokes of Thomas Kelly Pauley and Martha Moore.
Thomas Kelly Pauley
It’s been said that a painting preserves what time destroys. You’ll find time carefully preserved in this collection of paintings by Thomas Kelly Pauley, whose timeless portraits capture the moment, moving easily from the present to the past and beyond. With his one foot in the present, his other is placed firmly in a time of myth and legend on the edge of all memory.
Perhaps because Martha grew up on a family farm in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, she has always felt an affinity for nature. Her paintings are primarily landscapes—rivers, mountains, beaches, trees, waterfalls, rocks, flowers, and animals. Martha also specializes in rustic buildings, especially old barns. Her media is watercolor and oil, and paints in a traditional, realistic, detailed style.
