PRESS RELEASE: SUNDAYS AT TWO FEATURES MURALIST CRAIG MCPHERSON

(Warrenton, VA) February 14, 2024 – World-renowned muralist and artist Craig McPherson of Orlean will discuss his 50-year professional career with veteran journalist Lou Emerson, Sunday, February 25 at 2 p.m. in the John Barton Payne Community Hall in Warrenton.


McPherson’s work has been exhibited in shows around the world and major museum collections. 


This is the latest installment of Sundays at Two, a Fauquier Public Library series that brings together distinguished local writers, artists and scholars for conversations about their work and life.


Emerson and conservationist Doug Larson combine their experience and in-depth knowledge of Fauquier County to plan the popular series.


About McPherson, Larson says, “He’s done a series of murals at the New York City American Express building. I’ve seen it.  It’s absolutely breathtaking. He’s the perfect example of people living in this community who have flown under the radar.”  


McPherson’s work includes “Yankee Stadium at Night,” an atmospheric yet detailed nighttime vista of the sports icon.  Since the mid-90s, McPherson has been working on a broad range of imagery including landscape, natural phenomenon, near abstraction and the human figure.


The next Sundays at Two program will be Sunday, June 2, 2 p.m. featuring Sir Peter Crane. Crane is President of the Oak Spring Garden Foundation, an organization dedicated to scholarship and public dialogue on the uses, history and future of plants. Known internationally for his work on the diversity of plant life, he was previously Director of The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, one of the most prestigious and influential botanical gardens in the world.
