Leigh Anne Cassell’s Solo Exhibit – February 22 – March 30, 2014

The Gallery’s theme for this exhibit is “Rêves et Rêveurs – Dreams and Dreamers” drawing inspiration from the book “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern.

Leigh Anne’s work covers a broad range of visual interest, from whimsical to contemplative. Her strongest and most commented upon works so far are the portraits, of which the Steampunk Dr. Who and her self-portrait are two examples. Leigh Anne will show her recent as well as earlier work, some of which will be on loan to the gallery for this solo show. Visitors are encouraged to participate on opening day wearing theme colors white, red and black.

What’s New at Steam

Please put April 26 on your calendar for Eric Holstine’s solo exhibit! He is sending along preliminary photos of his work – this promises to be a very exciting show!

With the heightened interest in the revitalization of the Hill Top House, Steam at Harper’s Ferry has a mini display of related historic postcards. This is also a good time to buy “Of Steam and Spring” the first  of a series (hopefully) which features Hill Top House and the B&O Island Park.

We are always looking for new folks to come in and show their work, so there will be a call to artists in early 2014 for our next open call exhibit. Over the course of the year, we will feature several local and regional artists.
