Purrfection arm rest 2010

UNFORTUNATELY… I was unable to find time what with the remodel tail end details… I hope I can participate in the future!


Signed up for this fundraiser event this year.  Have to pick up my “unassembled” chair. The artists suggested that the chairs are easier to paint that way. This was the chair I did two years ago…

Purrfection – 2010

back of Purrfection 2010

There is to be a display and auction of decorated Adirondack Chairs again this year along Ruston’s beautiful wooded boulevard. Chairs will be on display between July 20 and 28 during the day with a silent auction on July 28, 2012. Funds from the 2010 display and auction provided some of the plantings in front of the Ruston Town Hall and Ruston school (2011), Christmas lights and decorations (2011), ceramic raku fish (made in 2011) to be installed at the PDZA aquarium at a future date, a tile mural which SAMI students are currently working on and various other plantings around the Town (2012).

This year, funds are earmarked for small-scale remodeling at the Ruston Firemen’s Residence on Winnifred Street and installation of the tile mural the Sami students are making as well as additional garden plantings.

Call to Artists: As in the previous year, unfinished chairs are supplied to artists to decorate. Selections of artists will be made by May 31 with the chairs handed out by June 2. Completed chairs are to be returned by July 18, 2012. Anyone interested in making an application should contact Ruston Arts and Parks at or Ginger @ 752-3041.
