Art In Provence … For A Cause In Chattanooga
Jill Steenhuis is a native of our Southeast who made her home in the southeast of France.
She is an artist who paints landscapes in the region where she has lived for more than four decades: Provence, along the Mediterranean and on France’s border with Italy.
Next week, artwork by Jill and her son Sergio will be on display at the Mountain City Club here in Chattanooga.
The public can view the art on Tuesday from 5 PM to 8 PM.
On Wednesday, an art sale will accompany a luncheon from Noon to 1:30 PM.
Part of the proceeds will benefit Salvation Army programs in the Chattanooga area.
I spoke with Jill - and Capt. Mark Love of The Salvation Army.
