|Rachel S. Roberts' Writings
Recently I returned from a trip south. My wonderful experiences were too many to count, but I will mention a few that were memorable. In Abingdon, VA., aside from seeing “The Big Fish” at Barter Theatre, the Arts Depot was fortunate enough to be hosting the 5th annual Women Painters of the Southeast, a juried exhibition featuring 160 works by leading representational artists. I was there when they were mounting the show, and I was privileged to view the works of artists from twelve southern states. (The show closes April 30th.) The winner of “Best of Show” will garner a five thousand dollar prize. DF Reed’s work of docked boats and reflecting waters was memorable, as were the works of Nancy Brittle, Kathie Odom, Haden Pickel, Hope Reis, Donna Kilbourne, and many others.
