The Keepers of the Tradition exhibition, on view at the History Museum of Western Virginia from February 12 to May 15, 2016, highlights the collaborative efforts of artist Leslie Roberts Gregg and author Michael Abraham to preserve the Appalachian lifestyle and culture.  Collecting traditions and observing ways of life passed down through generations, Leslie and Michael capture the continued skills and crafts seen in rural Appalachia through portraits, folklore, and the stories of twelve ‘Keepers.’ The opening for this exhibition will be held on February 12, 2016, from 6-8pm on the 3rd floor of the Center in the Square.  Join us for light hors d’oeuvres, craft beer, and regional music.  

Admission for the opening is $8 for non-members and free for members.
