To paraphrase Groucho Marx I am not sure I want to be in a show that would let me in it! I am joking. Click to go to the Governor's Show siteThe paintings on this post are all in the show. The one above sold at the reception.
Many of the beneficiaries of the success of this Art Show and Sale are children and youth in the community and beyond. Every 3rd Grader in the Thompson School District gets a hard-bound dictionary. Several thousands of dollars are given to college bound students and an apprenticeship for a non-college bound student is arranged. The Kids Pak program feeds hungry kids each weekend for the entire school year. A Books for Kids campaign and other youth organizations are helped, as well as some international projects. And, of course, both clubs are extremely active in participating in Rotary International’s End Polio Now campaign.

Fine art galleries opened and public sculptures started popping up like mushrooms. Part of this creative upwelling was also the aforementioned Governor’s Show.
