Cherokee prints help raise funds

Friday, June 16, 2006

Doug Pierson, Kaye Hooper, and Bonnie Varce are holding the latest in fund raising efforts for the Aquatic Center/Gillette Park project. The collage of photos was put together by Pierson, and his staff at Pierson Photography and then numbered from 1 to 200. The first print of each collage was matted and framed by Bonnie Varce of The Framing Nook. These framed prints are up for silent auction at the Framing Nook and the remaining 199 unframed prints can be purchased at The Framing Nook, Cherokee General Store, and the Copper Cup. All proceeds will go to the Aquatic Center/Gillette Park project.

In conjunction with the upcoming Sesquicentennial, the Aquatic Center/Gillette Park Committee is pleased to announce the latest effort to raise funds to complete the project. With the assistance of Master Photographer, Doug Pierson and his staff at Pierson Photography, a series of limited edition prints with a distinct Cherokee flavor have been created and are now for sale.

The three limited edition prints include a collage of the historic architecture and images from the Cherokee Depot, a set of five welcoming doors of Cherokee, and a black and white trio of historic structures including the Donohoe Building, the Steele home on Main Street and the Goldie home on Euclid.

The prints will be on display and for sale in downtown Cherokee at the Copper Cup, the Cherokee General Store and the Framing Nook. Each print is numbered and part of a limited edition of two hundred. Price of the depot print and of the black and white trio is $45, with the Doors of Cherokee print being $75. All proceeds will benefit the aquatic center/Gillette Park fund drive. Those who would like to obtain all three prints having the same print number are encouraged to act promptly.

Print number 1 of each series has also been matted and framed, and is now on display at The Framing Nook on East Main in Cherokee. Each of these three framed prints will be sold by a silent auction. Bids are placed on these framed prints at the Framing Nook. The silent auction will end at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 1, during our Sesquicentennial celebration, but the sale of prints will continue until all are sold.
