Upcoming and Current Events

Please join us when artist Amy Funderburk and her husband, photographer James C. Williams, welcome travel guru Michael Lundquist and the Forsyth Voyagers group to Funderburk’s studio.

Amy and Jimmy will show artwork and share spine-tingling tales from some of their favorite haunted locations where they’ve traveled in Ireland, England, Scotland, and Wales. Michael will then relate his recent adventures in legendary Romania, including his visit to Castle Bran, reputedly the home of Vlad the Impaler, the original Count Dracula!

Time permitting, everyone will then be welcome to share their own hair-raising stories as well as some local legends.

Michael Lundquist is the owner of Vital Transport LLC, a full service travel agency for today’s traveler. Lundquist is a group travel specialist, travel writer, and agent. Please visit his website today to see where he can take you!

Artist Amy Funderburk and photographer James C. Williams are drawn to the liminal places where the very stones and trees have stories to tell.

In her visionary series, Images From the Otherworld, Funderburk depicts her extraordinary experiences at sacred sites as well as imagery derived from meditation. Through these works she explores the intersection of the physical landscape with the spiritual realm. Please visit www.AmyFunderburkArtist.com to see examples of her artwork.

Williams has always been drawn to mystery, legend, and stories. That same inspiration has been the basis for most of his photographic work since 2004. To see more of Williams’ work, visit www.JamesCWilliamsPhoto.com.

Funderburk’s studio is located at 915 Bridge Street, Winston-Salem, NC, in the cobalt blue building beside the Porch restaurant in the West End Mill Works community. For more information, please contact Amy Funderburk. Please RSVP by Wednesday, October 11th if you’d like to attend.
