Irish Music Concert

Art Exhibit of Victor Warner

We are so pleased to have this showing of a small portion of Victor Warner’s work. He and his family lived in Ashby on Piper Road and some of the pieces in this show are scenes from his property and other nearby areas. One of the included pieces is a picture of a mural Victor Warner created for Monty Tech when it was being built.

The show was hung and decorated by Jacqueline Regueira of the Northern Barn, the former home of the Warner family on Piper Road in Ashby. The barn was previously the home of Victor Warner’s art studio.
