The Silver Rails Gallery and Memorial Library was opened in 2010. It was the idea of one of our members. This is the only permanent gallery that is devoted to rail works of art. Our displays feature paintings, wood carvings, photography and a hand crafted model railroad. Our library also has an extensive collection of railroad books and periodicals. I will cover that in more detail on a later post. The gallery is located in downtown La Plata and is open five days a week from 9 to noon. You may want to call first though in case the gallery curators have been called away to meet clients at another venue we operate. We also welcome tour groups by appointment.
Here are some samples of the works we have in the gallery:
Jackie Hadnot, Wooden Ironhorses
Carl Morrison, Modern day Classic Photography
Chris Jenkins, Oil on Canvas Art
Chris Guenzler, California Living
J.Craig Thorpe, The Painter of Amtrak
Nick Smith, Modern Photography
Tony Escarsega, Active Railroader
Will Anderson, Art via Auto Cad
Jim Jordan, Timeless Art
Robert Tabern, Author and Photographer
Nathan Chidester, New Orleans Style
Please come and see us. We also have a webstore with prints of all of our art and much more. If you are interested in exhibiting in this gallery please contact us via this website. Thank You.
