Shea Wells, founder and president of the Fayetteville Arts Coalition, worked last week on painting a 6-foot by 6-foot quilt replica for the Town of Thurmond which will be placed on the side of Thurmond Town Hall and become a part of the coming Fayette County Quilt Trail. The Thurmond quilt panel will have colors representing the New River, the train tracks which run through downtown, and other aspects of the town’s unique history. The mission of the Fayetteville Arts Coalition, formed in 2011, is to “create a sustainable arts community that supports local artists, creates art awareness and fosters artistic growth and education.”
