Pitch in for an artist
Local artist John Ryan is one of this town's best, but he's having trouble moving around with a bad right ankle. He's made his living doing art and carpentry and odd jobs, but has no health insurance. This Saturday at 8 p.m., friends of Ryan will host "The 'No Walking Around Money' Fund-Raiser for John Ryan" at the old Masonic Temple at 614 National at Summer. The $25 admission entitles the purchaser to music and open bar and a chance to win a new 6- by 4-foot horse painting by Ryan (pictured). More info from Fredric Koeppel at The Commercial Appeal is here.
