Carruth Studio announces daylong signing event at its gallery and retail store, Garden Smiles

03.31.2010 – Waterville, Ohio–Just in time for Mother’s Day, Carruth Studio has announced that sculptor George Carruth is scheduled to sign his work April 24th in the Waterville Ohio gallery and retail store, Garden Smiles. “People often struggle to find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day,” said Deb Carruth, owner of Garden Smiles and Carruth Studio. “George’s sculptures offer a whimsical alternative for Mother’s Day gift giving,” she stated. The signing is scheduled to allow customers to give autographed Carruth sculptures as special Mother’s Day gifts.

George Carruth’s hand cast and hand finished stone sculptures include inspirational, holiday, family and animal pieces as well as nature faces, fairies, gnomes and angels. “Many of our customers are collectors of Carruth sculptures and they relish the opportunity to meet and speak with George in person,” said Deb Carruth. “Having a piece autographed by George really adds value, according to our collectors”, said Deb Carruth. “George and I both enjoy having the chance to meet our customers and to hear the stories about how they have used their sculptures,” she added. Carruth Studio sculptures are used in garden and landscaping, interiors, as gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, weddings and anniversaries–and especially as an expression of sympathy or memorial. According to Deb Carruth, Garden Smiles carries the work of many other talented artists and, fondly dubbed “the pursuit of imperfection”, is the only place where one can find second quality Carruth sculptures at significant savings.

On display during the signing will be the newest additions to the Carruth collection, which include Grandma Nature, Grandpa Nature and the Pie Fairy, to name just a few. “George’s work is cast to give many years of pleasure,outdoors year round, and indoors” said Deb Carruth.
