Hoke's Mill Bridge by: Robert E. Tuckwiller, Artist
Robert E. Tuckwiller grew up on a farm near Lewisburg, West Virginia.  The next to youngest of five children, he developed his interest in art at an early age.  He recieved his B.S. degree from Concord University, in Athens, West Virginia.  Acclained as a realist, much of his work depicts the quiet beauty of pastoral country settings and the natural environment.  While Robert enjoys hiking, biking, and canoeing to find his subjects, many come from leisurely drives throughout the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia.  Today, Tuckwiller's award winning work can be found in more then 26,000 private and corporate collections throughout the United States and abroad.  He has released 97 signed and numbered limited edition prints, 57 of which are now sold out.
Robert has agreed to donate a portion of the sales of the Hoke's Mill Bridge print to help with the various FOTSC, Inc. projects 
Details:  Print price is $60.   Limited edition offset lithographic print.  Edition of 500 signed and numbered prints.  Image size 13X21.  Shipped flat for $10 anywhere in the United States.
