“Will Paint for Food”
Join us on Saturday, March 3, between 10AM and 4PM to buy art and help seniors! The eighth annual Art Show and Sale Benefiting Meals-on-Wheels gives you an opportunity to purchase wonderful original artwork to brighten your home or office AND provide food for homebound seniors in our community at risk for malnutrition.
Participating artists are donating a generous portion of their sales to provide nutritious meals for the homebound elderly through our Meals-on-Wheels program. Additional funds are contributed by corporate sponsors and individual patrons. Last year’s show and sale raised enough money to provide more than 17,000 meals for our community’s older adults, and this year we would like to make even more of an impact on senior hunger in our area.
Returning as our Presenting Corporate Sponsor is Wells Fargo, which will be joined by Presenting Individual Sponsor Adrienne Amos Livengood in memory of her mother, Virginia Dean Amos. Lead Community Sponsor for 2018 is Arbor Acres. Honorary co-chairs for the event are Peggy Taylor and Suzanne Taylor Ramm, a mother-daughter team dedicating their roles in this year’s event to the memory of husband and father John A. Taylor. Peggy, a local painter and longtime contributor, will be participating in the show again this year. Also returning are founding artists Dell James and Bonnie Dempster, who created the fundraiser in 2010.
This show will be a treat for the eyes and is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
The show will feature a wide variety of art at affordable prices, including oils, acrylics, pastels, pottery, baskets, wood carvings and jewelry. Prices range anywhere from $10 to $500. There will be something that suits every taste and every budget, and all of the art is original and locally created.

Artist Charlie Stott encourages everyone to attend this event:
“Come on to the show and sale. You don’t have to buy a thing. Just come and look around. Enjoy some time immersed in the hustle and bustle of other people enjoying art, just for the sake of enjoying art. It’s a fun event. Come, try it on for size.”
If you follow Charlie’s advice, we think it’s a sure thing that you’ll find something you absolutely HAVE to take home with you, though . . . maybe as an addition to your home or maybe as a gift for a friend. There’s something for everyone!
