WINNSBORO — Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation is the recipient of eight archival framed, signed and numbered limited edition Jim Harrison prints from an anonymous donor.

Framed prints can be purchased singly or in multiples for a charitable donation to the foundation.

Three of the prints can be viewed and purchased at Congress Street Auction House in Winnsboro. Others prints in the collection can be viewed with an appointment by contacting the foundation at 803-608-5510.

Jim Harrison’s America is the America to which we all want to return. His paintings of farm landscapes, country stores, and small town architecture afford viewers the opportunity to once again “go home.” Harrison’s art and writing have placed him among the nation’s most important chroniclers of earlier twentieth century rural life.

An established artist and writer from Denmark, Harrison has more than 100 limited edition reproductions to his name. Reminiscent of his earlier experiences as a sign painter, his work is known for chronicling earlier twentieth century rural life.

His strong feelings for rural America touch on every aspect of earlier ways of living, and his subjects — railroad stations, churches, one room school houses, country stores, covered bridges and farm buildings — representing the spirit of an agrarian society.

Harrison has had successful one-man shows at the New York Hammer Galleries and the San Francisco Conacher Galleries. His works have also been included in annual shows at the National Academy Gallery in New York.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
