Journey along the backroads and highways to discover the lost, abandoned and still standing old buildings and sheds in a body of work featuring Paintings and Drypoint Engravings by Rhonda Armistead. Armistead’s paintings give you a sense of place while the Drypoint Engravings give you a more intimate look into the spaces or a simpler understanding of how these buildings become part of the landscape. Homestead of my Dreams is a journey of Heritage and History, of distant memories and sentimental reminiscences that will transport those who fondly remember back to a far simpler time, and those that don’t an appreciation of the struggle towards an intangible prosperity and the fragility of existence.
