He is also known to have a deep well of stories from his years of touring, including sharing the bill with the Rolling Stones.

There will be a raffle for a piece of Goldsboro’s work. The original of this work, entitled “Reborn,” was sold at auction for $25,000 in Naples last spring. The theme and subject of this nature/ still life is unique with a floral motif and symbolic butterflies.

“It has the feel and look of a Dutch masterpiece, museum quality framing, and would be a fantastic treasure for any Villager’s home,” said event chair Helen Pool.

The Visual Arts Association of The Villages is again sponsoring an active Art Scholarship Program for Marion, Sumter and Lake County high school graduates in public, charter and private schools. To date, the VAA has awarded more than $83,000 to 48 seniors who are going on to study the visual arts.

Last year winners received $13,000 in awards for further art study.
