Work of Urbanna artist displayed at State Capitol
The work of Urbanna artist H. Trainor Roden is being displayed at the Virginia Capitol in Richmond.
Trainor received a call “out of the blue” from a Senate aide who explained that selected artists are periodically invited to show their work in the halls of the General Assembly building. The aide said Trainor’s work was recommended by people who had visited his “Sometimes In” studio-gallery at 51 Cross Street in Urbanna.
The Senate staffer told Trainor she viewed the artist’s website at http://www.trainorphotoart.com and said, “I like the work very much,” and extended an invitation to Roden to display.
“Naturally, I am honored,” said Trainor, whose work also hangs at the Rappahannock Art League Gallery in Kilmarnock, the Tides Inn in Irvington, and the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria.
For Richmond, Trainor selected eight pieces including several images from the Virginia countryside and others from Italy and Central America. His work will be displayed along a hallway leading to Senate offices 331-332 through the end of the early legislative session in mid-March.
