The title is a  figure of speech that I heard from my father and grandfather who were from southwest Virginia. Both came from a rural background and moved to a city. “It pains my heart” was said where they would experience a situation that created a distressing feeling. This is one of the many Appalachia figure of speech that was used by them to represent a situation or feeling. 


A meet the artists' reception  will be Friday, October 4, 5-7pm.
