One of the most exquisite structures on the beautiful Emory and Henry College campus is Memorial Chapel. The building is striking for the design and height of its steeple. Even more striking is its sanctuary (something I had always meant to paint but never got to it), which is the soul of simplicity and elegance. From 2003 to 2006, I was privileged to be on the faculty of Emory and Henry, a small Methodist College in the mountains of southwest Virginia, about 25 northeast of Bristol. The campus has been on that spot since its founding in 1836. It is one of uncommon beauty, as is the surrounding area. The place inspired many paintings, one of which was put on this site in August. Another three are located just below this entry, and here is a fourth.
