Lake Marion Artisan Gallery - April 2017 Featured Artist

Lake Marion Art Gallery is pleased to announce a month long exhibit by Bryan Hacker, owner of Wen Lily's Cafe and Gifts, located at 112 Main Street in Summerton, SC. A reception and an opportunity to meet the artist will be held April 8, from 2-4 PM at Lake Marion Artisans Art Gallery. Bryan is a multi-media artist exhibiting paintings, metal work and leather goods in this gallery exhibit.

Bryan Hacker is not only a local business owner, he is also a philanthropist dedicated to doing all he can to preserve the history of Summerton and to recovering as much of its former charm as possible by saving, refurbishing and renovating many of the downtown buildings. Sales of his art work will go to the non-profit foundation he has established to help spruce up downtown Summerton. In addition to painting downtown buildings, he has built planters for flowers and shrubs, and is now working on a grant to help the downtown area do further renovations. In addition, he is restoring a building at 210 Main Street which will house a museum dedicated to showcasing historic Summerton

Bryan says, "We are working hard so the future generations will be able to enjoy this beautiful area their parents and grandparents built and enjoyed." He believes that with the help of donors and the community at large, he can help the town better thrive and attract new, local businesses interested in relocating to a revitalized downtown Summerton. 

Come support Bryan's effort to really make a difference in Summerton. He has shown everyone that positive change can truly happen, one brush stroke at a time. Check out the exhibit of his art works on display at the Lake Marion Artisans' Gallery.
