Group selling canvas prints to raise funds

The Festivals & Events Action Team of Martinsville on the Move has begun selling canvas prints to fund the Action Team’s projects, including programming for the Linn Park Amphitheater and the Heritage Days Festival, which takes place in June.

Each print can either be finished in gallery wrap, which wraps the picture around the frame, or museum wrap, which has a border of white or black, or any color chosen to match a color in the photo. The print sizes range from as small as 6- by 6-inch to as large as 32- by 48-inch.

Mustard Seeds and Accents in downtown Martinsville, Ill., have offered space to the committee to display canvases. Brochures can be obtained at either shop and orders can be placed there, by contacting Brenda at bklittle@ or by calling 217-232-3232 for an appointment. Gift certificates are also available. To place an order, the Action Team needs an original (no professional photographs) digital photo (saved in jpeg format) either on a disk, or emailed to them. They also will offer to scan old photos into digital files. In addition, the Action Team has many original photos that can be made into prints. Delivery time is approximately one week from date of order. The prints can be shipped anywhere in the United States and Canada.
