Artists of all types and ages are encouraged to use Belmont as the backdrop for their artistic pursuits.
Gari Melchers enjoyed plein air painting his entire career. Of special note to us are the pictures he produced at or around Belmont, his Virginia country home from 1916 to 1932. In some cases, the views he transferred to canvas are remarkably unchanged today.
