This exhibition offers an intimate view of small rural towns struggling to recover from a Great Depression as interpreted by Greenville-based artist Dewey Funkhouser (b. 1932).Dewey Funkhouser grew up in a small rural town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia just like thousands of small towns in 1930s America. Life was a struggle, but in Funkhouser’s work spanning 50 years, he commemorates his experiences with depictions of common, everyday folks who share deep values of family and hard work and an appreciation of life’s simple pleasures.
