When Dr. Joaquin Holloway retired from a life of education, he had more time to dedicate to a hobby that had followed him most of his life: his love of trains. Whether it’s his involvement with local model train enthusiasts or his haunting the local railyards, Holloway can be found near the tracks.

His combination of this love with his pursuit of photography has brought him attention. Some of his photos were used as basis for paintings at the GM&O Building. More of his photos will be featured in the Mobile Arts Council for January, along with railroad items he plans to display.

An opening reception is planned for Jan. 10, 6 – 9 p.m. during the monthly LoDa Artwalk. For more info, call 251-432-9796 or go to www.mobilearts.org.
