Judith Duff Prints of Silvermont Available!

Judith Duff Photo 1Internationally known potter Judith Duff has donated prints of her original water color of Silvermont Mansion to the Silvermont Centennial Committee’s fundraising efforts.
Duff, a resident of Transylvania County, painted the original water color in the 1980s as part of a fundraising effort then for the Friends of Silvermont. The prints were made at that time, too.
Duff recently gave some of the remaining prints to the centennial committee to support fundraising for repairs and improvements to the Silvermont mansion.
“I am delighted to offer these prints as a way to help the efforts at Silvermont,” says Duff, who switched from painting to making her award-winning wood-fired pottery in the 1990s.
Anyone making a $150 donation to Silvermont between July 15 and the end of the year will be given one of the 21½ by 26-inch prints, says Jeannie Falknor, co-chair of the Silvermont Centennial Committee.
“We are delighted to have these beautiful prints from such a respected artist and potter,” says Falknor. “We appreciate Judith’s continued support of Silvermont.”
Anyone interested in making a donation and receiving a Judith Duff print can call committee member Jan Osborne at 828-885-7279 or email her at tedandjanosborne@aol.com.
The centennial committee is working on urgent repairs and improvements to the Silvermont Park mansion and grounds. Details of the strategic plans for both, and how to donate to the projects, are at http://www.silvermont.org.
