The statement of Uptown Roxboro. This theatre is still functioning and valued by many who live here, including the lovely lady who asked for it to be drawn. The Kirby was where she acted in her first play "The Velveteen Rabbit" as a child, and she continues to participate in plays here as an adult. Now, she and you, can have a piece of artwork to remind you of warm memories created inside this historic theater.


Drawn with pen all the details were captured. Every brick included giving the piece texture and visual interest. The collumns balance the piece, breaking up the bricks with smooth lines. Then the drama, the marquee. The perspective making you feel like you are back standing on the street about to walk in for a show. The perfect piece for so many reasons, from nastalgia to aesthetic.
