Keepers of the Tradition Fine Art show at the Abingdon Arts Depot

All twelve of Leslie’s portraits of the Keepers will be on display at the Abingdon Arts Depot. The opening reception for this event will be on June 17, 2017 from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. Leslie, Michael, and several of the Keepers will be on hand to sign books. A special musical performance will be provided by our own Keeper Edwin Lacy, who will be playing on his claw-hammer banjo.
