THIS PROJECT WEAVES TOGETHER, COMMUNITY SERVICE, ART, AND HISTORY
WHAT IS THIS PROJECT? The goal of this project is to create a series of paintings that tell a story of how people lived in the villages of Goochland from years gone by. Goochland has 5 districts. Each distict has at least one major village. The images for the paintings are being selected through a face book voting process that is open to the public. You can go to
www.facebook.com/villagesofgoochland and particiapte .
The 5 Villages with the most LIKES will be what I develop a painting around!
HOW IS THIS A COMMUNITY PROJECT? This project is created by me, Patti Rosner. My objective is to create a collection of paintings that show our history at one point in time. The collection will be given to the county and will be housed in the Goochland Administration Building for the public to enjoy. When the costs of the project are recovered, 100% of the PROFITS will be given to Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services and Goochland Historical Society.
Both of these non profit groups benefit our friends and neighbors, and receive no government funding. Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services, provide services that are geared to stabilizing and improving the lives of the impoverished, elderly, disabled, and at risk inidividuals and families.The Goochland Historical Society provides free services to those in our community doing local research, family genealogies and provide the research for historical building registration for our local government.
PROJECT COST The paintings will be 30"x40" in size. They will be framed. Title plates and lettering for the exhibit will be purchased to give the exhibit a professional look the county can be proud of. It is estimated to cost about $3,500.000. Every time I purchase materials, and product merchandise, I will make EVERY effort to get the best price available, to get the project cost lower, so I can begin supporting the benefactors of this project!
