This fundraiser for the Smyrna Museum will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Smyrna, 118 W. Commerce St., across from the firehouse.
Smyrna native and award-winning stone sculptor, Richard H. Bailey, will speak about his life, career, and his book at a fundraiser for the Smyrna Museum Saturday, Oct. 7 at 3:30 p.m.
This free event will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Smyrna, 118 W. Commerce St., across from the firehouse.
Following his speech, Bailey will be selling his carved marble, granite and agate sculptures, in addition to his book, “A Sculptor’s Miracles.” Half of the proceeds of the sale of Bailey’s art and books will be given to the Smyrna Museum for utilities and maintenance.
The Smyrna Museum is owned and operated by the Duck Creek Historical Society. There are two buildings, which were built in the 1790s, which make up the Smyrna Museum complex – the Barracks and the adjacent Plank House. Tours are free and are offered on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
