Seven years ago my friend Sherry and I began a conversation about a painted chair project as a fundraiser for the arts in Airdrie. Today we unveiled the latest edition of chairs that will be distributed in businesses throughout the community - Airdrie Public Library, City of Airdrie, Genesis Place, McArthur Fine Furniture, Good Earth Cafe, Brewsters, Home Hardware, TD Banks - then on September 1 they will be exhibited at Crossiron Mills until the Gala on September 12. This is my final year on the Committee so it's been a time of mixed feelings...nice to move on to new projects but sad to see our baby go.
