Loeschen montage honored in Gallatin, Tennessee
The 212-year-old City of Gallatin now has one more lasting historical representation of its past and present – a “time capsule in art”.
Community Creations, Inc., partnered with the City, local historians, and local businesses to create only the second pen & ink montage of a city in the State of Tennessee.
Bruce Loeschen, the artist who created the montage, is described as developing a “distinguished rendering of modern structures”. He explains his process by saying, “The foundation incorporates the roots and location of the city, working upwards towards the contemporary skyline.”
Author Velma Brinkley is one of the local historians who consulted with the City on the project.
The “time capsule in art” pen & ink prints of Gallatin, Tennessee are now available for purchase in the Mayor’s Office of City Hall or the Chamber Office, both on West Main Street downtown. The prints are $10 each. There is a limited quantity. There will be no more prints made after these are gone.
To view the print, or for more information, call the Mayor’s Office at 451-5961.
