CHAMBERSBURG – The Council for the Arts of Chambersburg presents “Life in the Midst of War: The Civil War Colored Pencil Paintings of Amy Lindenberger” from June 20 through Aug. 15 at its 159 S. Main St. location. The exhibit is open Tuesdays through Fridays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and at a meet-the-artist reception Friday, June 20, 5-7 pm.

“In 1996 I began to pursue my dream of combining my experience in depicting human expression and emotion, with my lifelong passion for the Civil War era,” explains Lindenberger. “The culmination of my efforts can be seen in my large-scale colored pencil images which focus on the war’s effect on the citizen-soldier, his wife and children, and society as a whole.” Amy’s work depicts with great sensitivity the personal realities of the Civil War in the lives of both soldiers and civilians, and provides a wonderful complement to the battle scenes and high drama depicted by other Civil War artists.
