Excerpts from the no-longer-existent Whitsend.org feature called the Odyssey Times. Originally published around February of 2002.
The Treasure Room at Whit’s End will soon be displaying a variety of paintings from local artists. John Avery Whittaker, owner of Whit’s End, said that the art on display will specifically celebrate the beauty of the town of Odyssey. “We live in a beautiful part of the country,” said Whit. “Since the Treasure Room is devoted to showing our true ‘treasures,’ we thought it would be a good use of the room to show people how blessed to live in such a scenic place.”
Jack Allen, co-owner of the J & J Antique Gallery, is lending several paintings from his shop as well as painting a few originals for the exhibit. When asked his favorite painting, Jack replied, “I think it’s probably one of Trickle Lake early in the morning; the calm and the quiet are just inspiring.”
The exhibit will open within the month.
