On Saturday, May 21st from 10am – 3pm Framer’s Market and Gallery in Rams Plaza will host an “All Creatures Great and Small” charity event showcasing local animal education and rescue organizations. Bring a pet food donation and receive a free gift and while you’re at it adopt a pet!!! Stop in and view our exhibit of aquamedia works on canvas and paper by local artist Stacy Lewis. Stacy is a North Carolina artist whose watercolor and acrylic paintings reflect her love of nature, especially animals. While they are built on a solid drawing foundation, their dramatic colors and animated quality make them unique. Stacy lives on a small hobby farm in Louisburg, where she raises fancy chickens, guinea fowl and miniature dairy goats, all of which appear in her most recent works along with cats, dogs and other, more exotic creatures “great and small”. Pictures of her paintings (as well as her farm companions) can be found at www.stacylewis.com. Stacy will be here at Framer’s Market and Gallery demonstrating her painting techniques and we will be raffling off a gift certificate for one of her fantastic pet portraits to benefit our participating rescue groups. Bring your pet with you and get 10% off your pet portrait order. You can also get the buzz about beekeeping from Ben Crawley, “Mr. Buzz” himself. There will be refreshments and Ben will have some newly harvested honey for sampling.
