One of our ACB members, Angela Stadelman, negotiated with the building owner of 400 Derby Rd (Phil Smith) to paint the doors on his building. The panels on the doors turned into flowers. Jane Seaborne-Davies and many other volunteers got involved and painted the entire wall of the building with a variety of scenes, flowers, birds etc. As people walked by they so liked the idea, even though they said they weren’t artists, painted something small or large on the wall.
One volunteer painted angel wings and a halo on a window in the wall; we have encouraged people to become A Derby Angel and send their picture to ACB for our gallery.
Angela asked another member, Philip Seaborne-Davies to cut a 4×8 sheet of underlay into various size tiles for painting (4×4, 6×6, 8×8, 12×12). She distributed the tiles to willing volunteers who were encouraged to paint them as they pleased. An e-mail to our contacts list secured several gallons/quarts of paint donations. To secure needed colours Wayne Otten of Turkstra Lumber and Phyllis Noseworthy of RONA retinted some of the gallons to the preferred colours. The tiles will be assembled on a 4×8 sheet of plywood (donated by Wayne Otten), framed by Bruce and spar varnished, and an unveiling ceremony is planned.
Angela, Jane and the volunteers also created a beautiful scene on the west side of Trixie’s Treats on Erie Rd.
WHERE WILL THEY STRIKE/PAINT NEXT?
