Our latest arrival!
The Society's newest publication, The Artist at Melrose, will be available in June. Honoring the late Ellen Miygawa's talent as an artist, the volume includes Ellen's black and white sketches of homes and buildings in Fluvanna, as well as a stunning color section of her paintings. Edited by Judith Mickelson and David Bearr, this book was made possible by a generous grant from Robert Miyagawa. Please click here to order.
