Whistle Stops & Depots

All aboard, railroad buffs! An exhibit of railway-related artworks by the members of Pennsylvania En Plein Air Society. Opening reception Friday July 23, 2010 6pm ? Music by Steamtown Ramblers with songs of railroads and hobos. This is your chance to attend a party and add a piece of original art to your collection. There will be oils and watercolors, acrylics and pastels; stations and trains. The work will be varied in size and scope, but all will be reasonably priced. Meet the artists; some are established well known names in Northeastern PA and some are emerging talent. All have taken on a two year project of recording our local railroading history on canvas and paper. It is a beautiful sight, if you love trains and history...or just ART!

Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 5-8pm through August 25. Schulman Gallery, 2nd floor of the Campus Center at Luzerne County Community College, 1333 South Prospect Street, Nanticoke, PA.
My pastel painting, Alford Switch Tower is included.

The switching tower, built in 1915, was used to switch the multiple tracks in use at the time. It was all done mechanically w
ith steel rods and levers and muscle power.
