Stories of an Abandoned Virginia, Sunday, April 28, 2019, 1:00 – 3:30 pm at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia.  This program is by John Plashal and Black Dog Salvage.  Come spend a Sunday afternoon enjoying this highly visual presentation of Virginia’s “abandoned afterworld”.  John Plashal has not only spend many years identifying and photographing beautifully decaying houses, churches, schools, hospitals and other structures throughout rural Virginia, but has assimilated into their respective communities to learn about their accompanying backstories.  The result is “Stories of an Abandoned Virginia”, a super-unique presentation full of “frozen in time” and the accompanying Virginians that once occupied them.  As part of the program, Mike Whiteside, co-owner of Black Dog Salvage and co-host of the TV show “Salvage Dawgs”, will also be there for a Meet and Greet session.  A complimentary 5×7 print will also be available to all ticket holders and Plashal’s photographic coffee table book, ” A Beautifully Broken Virginia”‘ will be available for pre-order.
