Gay Arthur has lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee for 25 years.  She loves the city’s passion for revitalization and progress but is fascinated with the beautiful architectural structures that were part of Chattanooga’s past.  She finds beauty in the rusty walls of an iron foundry, falling bricks of a delivery platform, and the chipped paint of old homes.  Her oil paintings of these places leave a trace of their existence as many are being demolished to make way for new development.

Gay continues her theme on nostalgia with her series on trains.  She loves the architectural nature of the trains and the many geometric intersections that produce dramatic shadows and contrasts.  Her works range from the antique steam engine of Skagway, Alaska to the 1900 Locomotives.  Hop on board and take a journey back to the days of the rail.

Gay is a huge fan of the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum in Chattanooga.  The museum offers closeup views for train buffs and many opportunities to ride in the old cars through the hills of the area.
