We are excited to welcome Donna DeRitter, artist and musician, to The Gallery for the month of May!
Throughout her life, Donna has seen parts of herself that she considered worthless used in beautiful ways she never would have imagined. So it is with her art.
Donna breathes new life into everyday objects that have been cast aside - items rescued from friends, thrift shops, garage sales and wherever else treasures are hiding. Each piece is reimagined with new purpose as artwork, decor and accessories.
Forgotten boxes of sheet music become wall art. Wreaths, ornaments and scratched records find new life reimagined as clocks and serving bowls. Neglected cymbals and clarinets become one-of-a-kind lighting. Ripped jeans are repurposed into clutches, totes and lunch sacks.
Through her work, Donna helps people "see the worth and possibilities in the things others would discard."
Stop by The Gallery to see Donna's unique creations - and read her inspiring stories - on weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm or during worship hours on Sunday.
