Images of Goochland

Detail from "Oilville 1938" by Patti Rosner

You are cordially invited to attend the dedication of "The Villages of Goochland" on Tuesday, June 2 at 7 p.m. in the board meeting room of the Goochland administration building at 1800 Sandy Hook Road, Goochland, Viginia.

This dedication will showcase this collection of paintings that represent a labor of love for Goochland by local artist Patti Rosner, who painted the amazing wildlife mural in the children's section of the Goochland Library.

Inspired by old photographs and memories of lifelong residents of each of the county's villages, Patti has created iconic images that capture a snapshot of people and places that have faded into the mists of time. As Goochland morphs into its next phase of existence, the importance of these charming impressions cannot be over estimated.

Proceeds from the project will be donated to the Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services and the Goochland County Historical Society. Notecards, mugs, and other items decorated with village scenes are also available.

The Kanawha Canal model will also be on display.
