About The Art Place

Edna Bonham Love was a “Champion for the Arts” sharing her love and passion of the arts and arts education with young and old. In 1991 she opened “The Art Place” in her hometown of Chilhowie, VA. Her desire was to provide art opportunities for all ages in the community in which she was raised; something that was not available when she was young. She met her mission by providing classes on many media, arranging shows that featured local and regional artists, setting up exhibits of community youth art and hosting guest artist lectures and luncheons. Through her work many community members were encouraged to share their talents of wood carving, photography, ceramics, painting, weaving, quilting, glass blowing and stained glass work and other artistic skills.

The family of Edna Love with support of friends and area art lovers wishes to continue her mission in the newly renovated “Art Place” at 124 E Lee Highway, Chilhowie, VA.
