Print Article

BELOIT - Artist Valerie Gibbons, creator of "FootsieStools," will be at Grinnell Hall Senior Center, 631 Bluff St., Beloit, at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7.

Gibbons will display her artwork and discuss how she turned a life-changing illness into an opportunity to help others and herself.

She has created over 20 decorative footstools and adds baby shoes to the stool's feet for a touch of whimsy. Each piece is uniquely themed and artfully detailed in mixed media.

This free presentation is open to the public but pre-registration is requested by calling Grinnell Hall at 608-364-2875.
