Wednesday’s Tallahassee Democrat ran a story about Missionary Mary Proctor having her home and studio vulnerable to being lost due to a $5000 debt to her landlord.
These are some of her pieces that I’ve taken pics of from different art festivals:
A portion of the article reads:
“I haven’t been able to go to shows, because people just aren’t supporting as much as they used to,” Proctor said.
Proctor said she’s made about $8,000 to $10,000 a year within the last years, but she remembers a time when she averaged almost twice as much.
“I’m a minister through art, and tell me how many ministers aren’t needed,” Proctor said. “I’m a visionary because I use my paintings to show people how to live and have inner peace in these times of chaos. I’m in trouble now and I need help from the community.”
Proctor will have an art sale Saturday at her studio located at 3919 Woodville Highway, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
