Artist/designer Lou Kregel has offered to create a temporary sign for the Art Center. It will be painted on wood.

Fundraising drive to commence

We are getting ready for some serious fundraising. A request for donations is being incorporated into these web pages. And a page has been created on Facebook. Accepting credit cards, to make it easier to contribute, is being considered. Contributions to the Stastny Folk Art and Crafts Foundation are tax-deductible.


 

High quality photographs to be sold here

Photographs of objects of Folk Art and Crafts will be sold from this website as part of the fund-raising effort. All of the proceeds will go towards furnishing the Art Center in Heath, TX. The architectural plans include three spaces for workshops. One will be devoted to ceramics and possibly wood work. Another may house a loom and work with textiles. The third will probably be devoted to photography and graphic arts.
