June 10, 1965 — One of Luray’s artists will have the unusual distinction of having her oil painting hung in the Australian Embassy in Washington.
The picture was purchased by a representative of the embassy during an art exhibit at the Luray Singing Tower.
The painting will hang at a later date in the Cranberry, Australia art collection of the Commercial Counsellor.
The painting is of three sailing ships in a disturbed background with rock wall, sky and ocean as depicted by Mrs. Edwin Markowitz.
