Don Whitson-Let Us Entertain You-The Art of Music and Movies

Running now through May 26, 2019
Reception: March 7, 5-7 PM

Take a walk down memory lane at the Wayne Theatre with the new “Don Whitson: Let Us Entertain You – The Art of Music and Movies” exhibit running February 28-May 26 in the Exhibit Gallery. An opening reception for the exhibit and artist will be held on Thursday, March 7, from 5-7 p.m. Coming on the heels of The Oscars, the exhibit will feature watercolor paintings of some of Hollywood’s brightest stars, including Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger and Johnny Cash. The works will be featured in the historic Wayne Theatre, which regularly shows award-winning movies and features up-and-coming performers as well as many legends.

Whitson’s career has spanned more than four decades, first as an illustrator in the U.S. Air Force, then, a long career in corporate aerospace art departments. In 2010, after 25 years as Chief of Visual Services for the Department of the Army, he decided to leave his position so that he could pursue his lifelong dream of painting full time. He lives and works in Waynesboro and is a member of the Virginia Watercolor Society, the Central Virginia Watercolor Guild and the Virginia Watercolor Society.
