Warren Chambers

return to list of events

Warren Chambers (deceased), a retired business owner in south central Kansas, signed all his canvas work with his middle name, 'Homer'. He called himself a "railroad archeologist", who photographed hundreds of old depots, as well as written songs and poetry about the railroad.

Paint marker and canvas was the exclusive medium for Warren. He completed over 650 paintings dealing with a wide variety of subjects and loved to create primarily at night.

Homer's art work began when he had a bunch of markers on hand from making posters and charts, and decided to try drawing. A good friend has described his art as "clashing colors." Many of his works reveal his wit and tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.

The Grassroots Art Center sells some of his work in the gift area and the on-line store.
