While staying in the area, we planned for a quick stop at the train depot. After viewing the downstairs offerings of local history and unique costumes, we popped upstairs. At first glance it seemed like a sweet exhibit of hobbyist paintings. After a few minutes, the significance started to shine. Alice Mosely painted history. You'll find the South, race relations, women's issues, labor, and life vignettes in her work. And the humor in the details is superb. You'll escape your reality and get immersed into hers.... a welcome break in the day.

We were unfamiliar with Alices Mosley but visited the museum because it is on the second floor of the L & N Historic Train Depot. We were utterly charmed. I loved her works but we are of an age when we are moving things out and no longer purchasing--or I would have!

I found the art unsettling. The gallery sitter and a video described the artist's intention to focus of fun, happiness, and making jokes. To me the jokes were put-downs, not funny.

Alice Moseley apparently first began to paint in her 60s, so most of her work reflects a by-gone era. These pictures romanticize a time that most of us don't recognize and many reject (Segregation, for instance). Still, some of the pictures are able to capture a mood that attracts the viewer. Prints of the original pictures are available at a very reasonable price.
