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
