The Liberty Bell Displaying and Seeking Locally Produced Art
NACOGDOCHES – November 3, 2013 – Local artists now have another venue to display their art, according to Kati Harris, one of the owners of The Liberty Bell. “We have several art students who work for us. There is a very vibrant art community in East Texas and would like to showcase local talent. We have a large, beautifully restored brick wall that would be a great backdrop to drawings, paintings, or other works that can be hung for display,” said Harris. The idea is to have local artwork that rotates through and can be sold on a consignment basis, or can be for display only.

Like other seniors my age, I was given an internet device for Christmas. Just what I need, something else to control my world and make me appear less than intelligent. This booger can take photos, videos, play music, display maps, lets me know if I’m lost, text, gets me on Facebook, and loads of other useless conveniences. Charlie, my husband, has to learn how the machine works then translate the information into my wee brain.

A few years ago, when my love for East Texas history, ghost stories, and photography began to merge, I started spending a lot of time in old historic final resting places around the Pineywoods. Since I began my journey with MYETX I have visited cemeteries, burial grounds, grave sites, and monuments from Jefferson, Texas to Galveston, Texas.
