Did You Know That There Is An Art Show At The Plank Road Store?

Next time you come by our Plank Road store, ask about the paintings we currently have on display in our function room. They are a series of paintings by Kathleen Walsh, a local artist that paints for the Liberty Town Arts Workshop. Kathleen has been painting for a long time and has exhibited all over the world. Click here to read about her and see a sample of her art. The exhibit at our store is a called "A Joyful Sound", and in Kathleen's words, "The paintings in this series are done on wood and canvas. I have used a mixed media, incorporating paper, modeling paste, acrylics and anything that seemed interesting at the time." If you're an art lover you really should come see these paintings, they really are world class.

Also, 20% of the revenue from the sales of these paintings will be donated to the ALS assocation in memory of Phil Chapman, a local artist and potter who died from the disease. ALS (sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease) is an often fatal disease that attacks the neuromuscular system. The ALS assocation funds research on the disease in the hopes of finding a cure. Read more about the association here.

So definitely come by and check out the art, and if you like it remember that by purchasing it you also help fund a good cause. The exhibit is at the Plank Road store only, next to Ukrops on route 3.
