Art for Heart’ campaign raises funds for local charity

Nov 01, 2019 02:26PM

Springville’s Brown Art Gallery will hold the first of what will be an annual fundraiser “Art for Heart” campaign.

This year’s campaign will benefit Tabitha’s Way, a local food pantry with locations in Spanish Fork and American Fork.

Tabitha’s Way was founded ten years ago by Wendy Osborn with a mission to assist in feeding those in need in our community.

Bill and Marilyn Brown, owners of Brown Art Gallery in Springville, which they founded in 2008, made a decision this year to donate 100 percent of the proceeds from sales of their personal art work and 100 percent of the profits derived from the sale of other participating artist’s work to Tabitha’s Way.

This promotion begins Nov. 1, and continues through Dec. 31.

“I have observed over the years the great and needed work done by Tabitha’s Way and wanted to assist them in their mission, “said Brown.

Art makes a great gift any time of year, particularly at this giving time of year for the holiday season.

Some of our artists have donated selections of their art work to help with this campaign.

“We have original paintings, pottery, basketry, fabric art, leaded glass art, antique furniture, and many other gift items to fit almost every budget. We are offering a special arrangement for original paintings for $99 or less. Many of our gift items can be purchased for less than $10,” Brown said.

The Brown Art Gallery is also collecting food items to be used by the patrons of Tabitha’s Way. For each can of food or food item donated, the gallery will give $5 off the purchase of any paintings by the Browns.

“Come and shop Springville’s Historic Main Street for a good old-fashioned holiday experience,” Brown said.

There will be many special events held during the months of November and December.

The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Brown Art Gallery is located at 274 South Main, Springville. (Serve Daily submission by Alleine Bowes.)
