E.J. Lefavour History Behind The Painting At The Sawyer Free Art Auction

Good Morning Joey,

Great – this will be fun.  Attached is a little info about me, and a painting I did of a turnabout (this painting was donated to the Sawyer Free Library for their annual art auction), info below about it and its history.  EJ-

Did you know

That the National 10 class was originally known as the Turnabout class, built in 1953 by Harold R.Turner as a small wooden single or double handed dinghy class at the Parker River Marine. The boats were initially built as a junior training boat, although adults enjoy the boats as well. The class has grown mainly in the New England and Northeastern regions of the U.S. Fleets are located in Northern Lake George, New York, Boston, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and New Jersey. This turnabout, located in Annisquam on Lobster Cove, is said to be the first turnabout ever built.


I went by the Art Auction display at the library this morning and leafed through the bid book.  there were many gorgeous paintings without any bids.

My suggestion is for you to go to that auction tomorrow night (Wednesday) for the live auction and you might just walk away with a great piece for very little dough.


Annual Art Auction 2010 Rescheduled
