ASK THE FINDISTS: Where can you buy the Janice Holt Giles House paperweights?
Question from reader turned over to Findist at Adair County Public Library quickly answered. Story below also includes informaton on artist's other paperweights, his home gallery
Do you know if there are any of those paperweights with Janice Holt Giles' house pictured on them?
I need to know how to locate one.
ANSWER: Thanks for asking an easy one.
The first Findist we called, Lisa Burton at the main desk at the Janice Holt Giles Memorial Library in Columbia, KY, knew the answer.
The paperweights are by noted Columbia Artist Lloyd French. They are $20 each. And they can be purchased at the Janice Holt Giles Memorial Library, known to many as the Adair County Public Library. And Kathy Jones has added, "The Janice Holt Giles house paperweights can also be purchased at the Chamber Office."
The one for sale now is the classic Giles House Scene, the view across the pond, with the house reflection.
More about Lloyd French's paperweights
Mr. French did this paperweight exclusively for the Giles Foundation to use as a fundraiser.
He has done other paperweights which are on display at his home gallery, HRS Raku Studio on KY 61 at the top of Lynch Hill, next to Antioch United Methodist Church, Columbia, KY, in the Sparksville Community.
Gallery Owner Henrietta Scott said that several of Mr. French's paperweights are on sale at the gallery. They include:
"He is doing one based on a quilt Ivy made," she said. Ivy French was Lloyd French's second wife who died January 31, 2006.
She added, "He was working on the painting the day Ivy died."
