DUBOIS – Whitney Basinger, owner of The Cutting Cove in Falls Creek, purchased an original piece from Carrie Osborn, a professional painter at the Winkler Gallery in DuBois as part of the Win-Win Art Buying Challenge.
The challenge is for local businesses to support their local economy by purchasing art from artists in the area, specifically the Winkler Gallery’s artists rather than online or from a national distributor.
The gallery is proud to have Osborn’s piece hanging on the walls of this new business.
The Cutting Cove will officially open Monday, July 23 and will be hosting a grand opening celebration Saturday, July 21 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. in Falls Creek.
There will be live music from the local band Genever, a cookout and raffle baskets.
