The Pipeline by Melissa Burgess, Limited Release Fine Art Print
Just down the metal ladder along a narrow catwalk atop the pipeline, you’ll find the heart of Richmond. Here the CSX railway serves as your canopy above, with giant granite boulders flanking the banks and the river raging below your feet. You’ll spot Blue Herons nesting in their riverfront rookery along with Osprey, ducks and geese. Nearby the islands are wild and crumbling ruins of Richmond’s past scatter the landscape. Sounds of passing trains mix with the cadence of the James roaring through the Pipeline Rapids, mirroring the pace of our own lives. Artist Melissa Burgess has captured this special place in her painting of the Pipeline as part of the Ture Places series. A portion of the proceeds from Melissa’s piece will benefit Beyond Boundaries, a nonprofit in Richmond specializing in guiding participants with disabilities, veterans, at risk youth, and recovery programs on outdoor adventures.
