A large num- arrived later to view the art gallery. Ribbon-Cutting Crowd for Art Gallery By ANDY KOBER While it is not likely to appeal to all, last week's Gran4 Opening of The Suffering Artist gallery brought a breath of fresh air to Hogansville. Reusing a building along Main Street in the downtown that had been previously been damaged by fire, the husband and wife team of Chris and Sarah Scarborough not only renovated the interior of the building, they uti- lized a concept of what is old, is new. With a number of city officials, mer- chants and well-wishers present, the grand opening and ribbon cutting were held on the evening of Friday, Feb. 26. IN ADDITION to opening the busi- ness, Sarah Scarborough presented a showing of her own work. A nurse by profession, she is an artist at heart. Dealing with black and white images, her artworks adorned the walls. Chris Scarborough did much of the work on the gallery. After mitigated fire damage, plas- ter was removed from parts of the inte- rior walls, making the original brick visible again. A raised platform area is located in the rear and .accent lighting is found throughout the building. The store" will serve as Sarah Scarborough's art studio, when she is not serving as a nurse. open House Highlights Upgrades at Event Facility By ANDY KOBER Victoria Belle Mansion has already become d desti- nation point in Hogansville and with recently upgrades has become even more so.
