Organizers of the Saluda Historic Depot will present artwork by William and Anne Jameson to benefit the ongoing fundraising efforts to purchase the train depot and future museum.
The exhibit will open Friday, June 6 with an opening reception at 6:30pm to 8:30pm and run through July 31, 2015. The Saluda Historic Depot is at 32 Main Street, Saluda, NC, 28773.
“Anne and I are excited to be a part of this worthwhile endeavor to purchase the train depot and to see it used as a historic museum. As residents of Saluda, we feel exhibiting our work in our mountain hometown and donating a portion of our proceeds from sales of our artwork to the fundraising, is an excellent way to show our support,” says Bill.
About William Jameson (http://www.williamjameson.
Bill’s passion for history and nature allow him to create introspective landscapes embodying the full range of local color and timeless contrasts, whether the setting captures the brilliant, warm colors heralding the arrival of fall in the North Carolina mountains or the rich Tuscan countryside dotted with cool blue/green olive fields in bloom among the red-earth shades of freshly upturned soil. Rejecting the term “scene” in reference to these works, Bill defines his landscapes as “explorations.”
About Anne Jameson (http://www.
The architecture and daily activity of the charming towns and villages that dot the landscapes of Italy, France and Mexico have long fascinated Anne Lewis Jameson for subject matter. She enjoys the architectural subjects particularly for the graphic design aspects of a composition, but also for the wonderful color, and she enjoys the opportunity for some interesting plays of light and shadow which can provide drama or 'mystery' to a painting.
About the Depot
The depot sits on historic Main Street at the crest of the steepest mainline standard gauge railroad in the United States. The depot building is a contributing structure on the National Register of Historic Places in the listing for the Saluda Main Street Historic District.
The Saluda Historic Depot organization is raising money to purchase the building and is working with the Historic Saluda Committee to make it Saluda's historic museum to highlight the history of the railroad, Saluda's downtown, its people, and the history of its natural resources.
Whether you're a hunter or non-hunter, there are some simple safety tips you can follow to make sure you and others stay safe during hunting season. For example, wear blaze orange when in the national forests. A complete list of safety tips is posted online at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/
Also, many anglers are already hitting the waterways of North Carolina in search of a BIG catch.
Hunters and anglers must have the proper licenses and know the regulations when recreating in the national forests. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission website gives hunters and anglers (as well as trappers) all the information they need. Go to: http://www.ncwildlife.org/
