The Art's The Thing - Art is a true adventure when you visit the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Ackley on Berkshire road. Among their collected works are these paintings which bring the living room wall to life. At left, above the antique chest, is a Richard Wilt oil entitled "Tomato Plant." Above the fireplace is an untitled original oil by the Ackley's son, David. Its message has been variously interpreted as a snowstorm in a canyon or a portrait of Arab women. The haunting face on the wall at right is another by the couple's son. It expresses the character of the Mexican Indian, as felt by David after time spent in Mexico. The Ackley home is one of nine on the Women's City Club Tour.
