The public is invited to the Green Schoolhouse to meet egg tempera and watercolor artist Gary Akers Friday through Monday, July 1 through 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The Green Schoolhouse studio is a restored one-room Finnish school located two miles down the St. George peninsula on Route 131 south (414 St. George Road).

Akers will present several new limited-edition giclée prints, signed and numbered. There also will be artist's proofs available (prints used for color matching), which can be signed by the artist; these proofs are very limited. On request, Akers will personalize prints with a one-of-a-kind remarque, an original hand-painted watercolor in the border of the print.

The artist will be glad to answer any questions concerning his new giclée prints. For more information, call (859) 250-0278 or visit
