The “Travels in Time” exhibit has begun! On view through November 17, 2013 are the works of artists Eric Holstine from Charlston, WV (mixed media); Leigh Anne Cassell from Charles Town, WV (illustration); and Jason Edwards, Steam at Harper’s Ferry’s Resident Artist, Harper’s Ferry, WV (digital art). This exhibit explores various manifestations of time travel through several artistic interpretations.
