05.03.2010– Waterville, Ohio—Carruth Studio receives regular requests for artist signing events, which allow collectors of Carruth sculptures to have their purchases signed by renowned American sculptor, George Carruth. A recent artist signing event drew steady streams of fans, eager to visit with the artist, review the new additions to the collection, purchase gifts for Mother’s Day and have each piece individually signed by the artist himself. In response to requests from customers and fans, George Carruth has scheduled a second artist signing on Saturday, May 8th.
George Carruth’s hand-cast and hand-finished stone sculptures include inspirational, holiday, family and animal pieces as well as nature faces, fairies, gnomes and angels. The sculptures and plaques are often given as gifts for special occasions. “George and I both enjoy having the chance to meet our customers and to hear the stories about how they have used their sculptures,” said Deb Carruth, George Carruth’s wife, and owner of Garden Smiles and Carruth Studio. “Many of our customers are collectors of Carruth sculptures and they relish the opportunity to meet and speak with George in person,” she said. “Having a piece autographed by George really adds value, according to our collectors”, she added. “We’ve had so many requests for another artist signing that we added this one to the schedule at the last moment.”
Carruth Studio sculptures are used in garden and landscaping, interiors, as gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, weddings and anniversaries–and especially as an expression of sympathy or memorial. According to Deb Carruth, Garden Smiles also carries the work of many other talented artists and, fondly dubbed “the pursuit of imperfection”, is the only place where one can find second quality Carruth sculptures at significant savings. ?? Garden Smiles offers a wide range of gift items and decorative pieces for indoor and outdoor use.
“People often struggle to find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day,” said Deb Carruth. “George’s sculptures offer a whimsical alternative for Mother’s Day gift giving,” she stated. According to Deb Carruth, George Carruth has recently released a short video highlighting four of his favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas and providing some “behind-the-scenes” information about each one. Carruth sculptures are cast to give many years of pleasure, outdoors and indoors—year round.
The Carruth artist signing on May 8th will be held at Garden Smiles in Waterville, Ohio. The event starts at 10:00 AM and runs until 5:00PM EST. For directions or more information visit http://carruthstudio.com or call 419.878.5412. You can also find Carruth Studio on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
