RON ATWOOD GI-CLEE PRINT
(article by Stella Barrow and Patti Webb)
Ron Atwood, renowned wildlife artist, has generously donated a ONE OF A KIND print, titled “Mossy Break” to the Greater Caddo Lake Association. The beautifully-framed print, #6 of 100, is made uniquely valuable by the addition of Don Henley’s signature on the back side of the print. Henley (of The Eagles), is a staunch supporter of Caddo Lake and the Caddo Biocontrol Alliance, and he and Atwood have requested that all proceeds from the sale of this print be directed to the Caddo Biocontrol Alliance Morley Hudson Weevil Greenhouse.
Only 1,000 tickets are available at $10.00 each, or 3/$20.00, and payment through PayPal is accepted through the GCLA website (gclaoftx.com). A picture of the print is on the Greater Caddo Lake Association of Texas Facebook page. If you prefer to send a check, you can send this page a personal message and a board member will be in touch with you regarding tickets. This print and other works by Ron Atwood can be seen on his website: http://www.ronatwoodart.com
This uniquely Caddo print will be on display at the following locations:
July 13-July 26 at Gecko Pest Control (Daren Horton), 108 East Travis, Marshall TX.
July 27-August 9 at SIG Insurance Services (Doug Heard), 214 South Lafayette St., Marshall TX.
August 10-August 23 at State Farm Insurance (Ray Settles), 210 South Walcott, Jefferson TX. Additional dates and locations will be announced via the Facebook and GCLA website pages. PLEASE STAY TUNED!
If all tickets are sold before September 5, the Annual Labor Day BBQ, the drawing for the print will be held at the BBQ; if tickets remain unsold, the drawing will be held at a special event before the end of the year.
