“The Farmsteads of Gettysburg Battlefield”
Published July 30, 2013
Best known for designing and sculpting the equestrian monument of James Longstreet that stands on West Confederate Avenue in the Gettysburg National Military Park, Cashtown artist Gary Casteel has also built a reputation as a painter with an eye and affection for historically significant landmarks.
Some of you may have seen Casteel’s exhibition of paintings, “The Farmsteads of the Gettysburg Battlefield,” at the Adams County Arts Council‘s Art Education Center during the 150th Anniversary Celebration. The collection has been hanging during the entire month of July, so there’s just a few more days to see Casteel’s monumental talent up close and personal.
The exhibition is currently hanging in the Reception Hall of the Arts Education Center, located at 125 South Washington Street right here in Gettysburg.
If you’re unfamiliar with Casteel and his work, this interview from a few years ago is an excellent introduction.
