Upshur County life in early 1900's to be exhibited at Texas Visual Artists Association TVAA Gallery,  Plaza of the Americas, 700 N. Pearl St., Dallas Tx along with the photos taken in Upshur County of the events.  

Historic depictions of Upshur County logger, Tolbert Pitman, his son, Judge Pitman and the Wilkinson family are shown taking a wagon load of timber by oxen from Simpsonville to the Railroad near Bettie. 


The second painting is a depiction of Tolbert Pitman and men loading timber onto Texas Southern 336 near Bettie.   These historic renditions are from old photos taken by a Gilmer photographer. 


The artist, Julie Pitman, a descendant of Tolbert Pitman has recreated these masterpieces to honor her family. Her monument "Angel Weeping with Roses" was installed at Simpsonville Cemetery to honor the Pitman - Dodson families of Upshur County a few years ago and now she has created these historic works of Upshur County life.
