One of West Chester's most visible art fund-raisers has returned, this time with end tables that will be auctioned Oct. 14 to benefit a nonprofit senior assisted-living facility.

Stores throughout West Chester are displaying four-drawer end tables that have been transformed by area artists and will be sold during the 8th annual Art of Caring event, which will help fund expansion of The Hickman, a Quaker assisted-living facility in West Chester. 

The artists participating in this year’s event are Laura Barton, Evalyn Eckman, John Hannafin, Mitch Harper, Linda Lynch, Bradbury Mattes, Sherry McVickar, Super, Amory Stedman, Nancy Thompson, Dane Tilghman and Brett Walker.

The work will be rotated at the following venues:   Jane Chalfant, Ruby Slippers,  Founds Funeral Home, Sunset Hill, West Chester Country Club, Penwick Design, Taste of Olive, Kaly’s, The Hickman, Gawthrop Greenwood, Fulton Bank and Visual Expansion, all in West Chester, and the Artful Framer in Paoli.

The Hickman is located at 400 N. Walnut St. For more information on the Art of Caring, tickets, and sponsorship opportunities, contact Pamela Costanzi, Senior Development Director of The Hickman, at 484-760-6416.
