Art With Heart returns this weekend

Artists from Fayette, Coweta, and other South Metro counties are teaming up to share their culinary and artistic talents this weekend. Over 25 award-winning and multi-talented artists and crafters will be selling original, one-of-a-kind stained glass, paintings, pottery, fabric art, and more at St. Andrews in the Pines Episcopal Church, Peachtree City. 

There will be an opening reception Friday Feb. 1 from 6 – 9 p.m. Art lovers and food appreciators are invited to come meet the artists and view and purchase their art prior to the Saturday show. The art show will be Saturday Feb. 2 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Select pieces of art have been donated by the artists to help raise money to support The Children’s Village at Christian City. Some artists will also be donating a portion of their sales proceeds to the Children’s Village.

Christian City has been caring for abandoned and abused children in a family centered residential setting since 1965. Over 1,000 children have called Christian City “home.”  If you would like to learn more about The Children’s Village or how to sponsor a child, please call Heidi Becker at 770-703-2636 or visit www.christiancity.org

FAACE meets at St. Andrews on a quarterly basis and holds a number of shows in the area. Additionally, they host seminars, plan to offer some “gallery hops” and sponsor a number of arts-related day-trips. The groups next show will be at the Farrago Gallery in Newnan in May.

Art With Heart will be held at St. Andrews in the Pines Episcopal Church, 316 Peachtree Parkway, Peachtree City, GA 30269. For more information, please call Janet McGregor Dunn at 404-290-3638, email Noel at noelmer7@yahoo.com or visit the FAACE website at www.FAACE.org.
