In October in the Main Gallery of the Petersburg Area Art League, PAAL, Mr. Eddie Woodmancy will be exhibiting. Mr. Woodmancy was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He is the owner of Cruisers Collision and Restoration Inc. in Petersburg, Virginia, and has lived in the Tri-Cities area for 48 years. Eddie is a graduate of Colonial Heights High School. He competed one year of study at Virginia State University, Chesterfield, VA, with a Major in Music.
With the knowledge acquired to do auto body work (sanding, sculpting filler, and painting) it was easy for him to learn replica prop making and costume design. This experience led to his membership in the 501st Legion, Rebel Legion Star Wars costuming and prop building club. Building and collecting movie prop replicas and screen used props became a passion of his for the past 20 years. We at the PAAL are very excited about his exhibition this month.
