The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation announces a generous donation towards the Jamestown Public Market thanks to the talents of the local Sherwood Arts Complex, Inc.

The Sherwood Arts Complex brings artists, business owners, parents, children, musicians and community members, from all walks of life, together in one space to experience, buy, sell and learn about opportunities to give back to our community.

Founder Vince Liuzzo has been a part of the annual GROW Jamestown Garden Fair and Home Show for the past three years, bringing along exciting spectacles including live chainsaw demonstrations. Vince created ‘Jerry Raff’, a beautiful wood carving that was raffled off during this year’s event. Jamestown resident Michelle Smith was the lucky winner. All proceeds were generously donated to the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation to be used towards programming at the Jamestown Public Market.

“We thank Vince, his brother Andy, and the Sherwood Arts Complex for using their talents towards bettering our community” says Public Market Manager Linnea Carlson. “Vince’s live chainsaw carvings are an exciting part of our annual GROW Fair and we are thrilled that this year he chose to donate raffle proceeds towards the public market. It takes a lot to operate the weekly market and we could not do it without the help of our community.”

Vince hopes to continue supporting local community programs through the Sherwood Arts Complex. In addition to partnering with local organizations to create unique wood pieces that can be auctioned, the Sherwood Arts Complex has vintage video game systems and a portable stage that can be rented for local events, charity gatherings and parties.
