Images from nature, recreated in the natural medium of wood, compose the exhibit Life in Wood, on display at the Hopewell Library from May 1 through June 27. A portion of this exhibit is also on view at the Dinwiddie Library and Prince George County Library.
Vita Wall Davenport, a resident of DeWitt, Virginia, uses pyrography to produce her uncommon art. Pyrography, which translates into "writing with fire," is created by using carefully applied heat to make images out of burn marks. Ms. Davenport, who also makes watercolor paintings, is a self-trained artist.
