Community history displayed in local art show

Chestnut Creek Heritage Chapel looks to remember the past with artwork and crafts in the present during its inaugural Heritage Makers Show and Sale on Saturday.

The event will be held at the chapel and will showcase some of the finest artwork completed and inspired by local artists from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Take a break from the hot sun this Saturday, and enjoy some of our local artwork,” Heritage Chapel President Denise Scarbrough said.

Various forms of artwork are scheduled to be on display and will include paintings, quilts, woodwork, photography, leatherwork and heirloom vegetables from Chestnut Creek Farm.

“The people of this community have always made things,” event organizer Ola Taylor said. “Our idea was to show a sense of community pride through their work.”

Though the goal is remembering the past, the event has a focus on the future with the inclusion of artwork from children of various ages throughout the county.

Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase certain items, but the event is free to the public with cookies and lemonade available for those in attendance.

Craftsmen will be on hand to do metal work, and a leather demonstration is also scheduled to provide an up close and personal approach detailing the processes.

According to Scarbrough, the goal is to attract future events and open the chapel up for community use moving forward.

Chestnut Creek Heritage Chapel is located at 11975 County Road 24 in Verbena.

“The idea came about through conversation and we hope it allows for even more reflection by those who attend,” Scarbrough said. “If you don’t know your history, you lose who you are.”
