The “Life in Wood” exhibit features scenes from nature recreated in wood and paint by Vita Davenport of Dewitt, Virginia. Ms. Davenport works with watercolors and “pyrography,” or “writing with fire.” Pyrography is created by using carefully applied heat to make images out of burn marks.
Visit “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.
