Memorial Showcase at Amapola Gallery

This is a picture of the Mabel Culpepper Memorial showcase.

Memorial Showcase in loving memory of Mabel Culpepper at Amapola Gallery

When you enter the Romero House on your way up to Amapola Gallery, you will see a beautiful display case at the bottom of the stairs.

This case holds examples of the work of half our members at a time. It provides the viewer a glimpse of the variety of visual and tactile wonders waiting upstairs.

A generous legacy from Mabel Culpepper (June 20, 1936 – October 24, 2013) made this case a reality. It was on our wish list for years.

Mabel, working primarily in oils and acrylics joined Amapola Gallery in January 1995. She was a wonderful member, participating in all the many aspects of running the gallery.

Her art was delightful, reflecting on a childhood spent on her father’s farm: dogs, horses, pigs, old trucks. She never met a critter she couldn’t capture the essence of, including zoo animals. I should know. I own three of her small paintings.

Mabel’s entire body of artwork conveys simplicity, serenity and peace. It was a grief to lose her, but her memory will remain a gift to all who knew her.

Our memorial showcase display is sincerely dedicated to her, “In Loving Memory.”


After a lifetime batting words around like shuttlecocks in an endless game of badminton, it is a pleasure to use them to promote Old Town and my fellow artists at Amapola Gallery. –Kristin Parrott, carver, painter and acorn stuffer
