A Chattanooga watercolor artist is planning to auction 77 pieces of his work to benefit a more than half-century-old outreach ministry of First-Centenary United Methodist Church that serves children in the community.
The Centenary, formerly known as the church's inner-city ministry and active since 1967, provides academic tutoring, physical education, life skills development and avenues for spiritual expression in an after-school program and summer day camp for students from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The artist, John McLean, a native of Ireland, primarily paints landscapes. He was a member of In-Town Gallery for 12 years, is a former member of the Tennessee and Georgia Watercolor societies and has exhibited in juried shows with the Falmouth Artists Guild (Cape Cod) and the Georgia Watercolor Society.
The works may be viewed (and bids taken) in the church cloister, 419 McCallie Ave., today and Oct. 17 from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and Monday-Thursday, Oct. 11-14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
