Join artists and authors at the Edison Ford Shoppe at Bell Tower Shops from 1:00-5:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 8 for a special exhibit of work including hand-painted furniture, furnishings, books, paintings, prints, photographs, handmade clothing and jewelry. Participating in the event are Marie Adams, Marie Dyer, Katie Gardenia, Kim Hambor, Jane Kirschner, Megan Kissinger, Charles LeBuff, Charles & Elaine Lefebvre, Christine Lemmon, Leoma Lovegrove, Jerry McMillan, Edwina Raffa, John Sheppard, Tom Smoot, Charles Sobczak and Kenneth Sushil.
All of the artists and authors will be available to talk about their work, give insight into their craft, and personalize their books and art. This group of artists and authors has a special interest in the legacies of the Edison and Ford families as well as to the art, science and history that has continued to intrigue us over the years. A portion of the sale of work supports the education scholarship fund for students at Edison Ford in summer camp and programs throughout the year.
The event is open to the public and refreshments will be served. For more information contact Edison Ford at 239-334-7419.
