Artist Reception Benefiting "Concord Missionary Baptist Church"
March 14
Come Celebrate Art and Fellowship with artist Dorothy Shelby (also known as Aunt Dottie) who was born in Industry, Texas and grew up in the area with her family coming from a long history of cotton farm pickers.  Her paintings are primitive folk art. Refreshments and appetizers will be served during the reception.

Dorothy paintings are unique in that she records the events of her memory on the backside of her work depicting her age in most cases and placing herself in the scene. 

Mrs. Shelby is also the wife of Pastor Herbert Shelby from Concord Missionary Baptist Church, the next door neighbor to the Gallery.   Mike and Debbie Koenig, owners of The Orchid Tree Gallery are helping to raise funds for a new building.  Net proceeds from the sale of Dorothy's art will be donated toward the building fund.

The Show will continue through the famous Round Top Antique's Week.  Be sure to stop in to meet Dorothy and include her art on your 'must have' list!
