Lynchburg College Permanent Collection
The Lynchburg College art collection began some years ago when former Art Department Chair Donald Evans used funds made available to him by President Orville W. Wake to purchase a few original prints for use as teaching aids.
From this beginning, Lynchburg College has assembled a collection that includes a group of 80 small oriental works in jade and other precious stones (a gift of the late Jeanne Carmen Enderli Callaham), works by Amherst County folk artist Queena Dillard Stovall, and works by American and European artists.
A major addition to the collection was a gift from Martha Randolph Daura in 1989 of 150 works by her parents, Pierre and Louise Daura. Since then, she has donated many works by Pierre Daura, Jean Hélion, and others.
Should you wish to make a gift of funds or works of art to the Lynchburg College collection, please contact the director, Barbara Rothermel, or Gene Frantz, vice president for planned giving.
