The Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center invites you to stop by for an evening of art and music! Karen Cohen presents PHANTASM, which is defined as a figment of the imagination; an illusion or apparition. Her images, which she calls photoart, offer a visual journey that twists and bends reality. Karen is a professional photographer who works with digital photography and freelanced as a rock and roll photojournalist during the 80’s. Her work was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s library archives in 2012. She has exhibited her work in art venues throughout the United States. Vicky Neal opened Vicky’s Vintage after retiring from teaching visual arts for 24 years. She uses vintage furniture to create re-imagined functional art pieces for your home. Some were created by combining several pieces of furniture into a statement piece that focuses on both functionality and artistic expression. She will display these one-of-a-kind designs in the Visitors Center, some that were saved from destruction and are now beautiful pieces of art. Music throughout the evening will be provided by G.R.O.U.P. (Greenbrier River Optimistic Ukulele Players) and members of the Alderson Quilt Guild will be on hand with their annual raffle quilt. Stop by to meet the featured artists and learn about their unique talents! (905 Washington Street W, 304-645 1000. @GbrValleyWV)
