Greeneville, Tennessee – Apex Bank and The Greeneville Arts Council proudly announce the 2nd Annual Greeneville Vintage Photographic Prints Auction. This auction will be held online at www.GreenevilleArtsCouncil.org and runs from September 18th through October 2nd. The event will feature a collection of 35 vintage prints offering a glimpse into Greeneville’s history, including the funeral of our 17th President Andrew Johnson, The Earnest Fort House – called by local historian Richard H. Doughty, “one of the oldest and most impressive houses in the state of Tennessee” – and the James S. Maloney store on Depot Street, circa 1910-1912, as well as many more. The featured print, “Fess Parker as Davy Crockett visits Greene County” is circa 1956 and depicts Mr. Parker – the actor who portrayed the legendary frontiersman and fighter on the popular television series – visiting what has since become the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park.
“We are honored to partner with The Greeneville Arts Council to help raise funds for student scholarships”, stated Tammy Kinser, Greene County Market President with Apex Bank. “This is the second time we have joined forces with the Arts Council team and we look forward to showcasing the stories told in the framed prints. We are also proud of our team member Megan Hensley for her work on this project.”
Proceeds from this auction will benefit student scholarships and opportunities through the Greeneville Arts Council. The Greeneville Arts Council Board of Directors is composed of an all volunteer coalition of local artists and art enthusiasts. All framed prints featured in the auction were donated by Apex Bank.
“The Arts Council is excited about this opportunity to raise scholarship funds since Covid-19 has interfered with our in-person fundraising for many months,” stated Til Green, Secretary and Director of Exhibits with the Arts Council. “We appreciate the generosity of Apex Bank and applaud their community-minded spirit!”
