His tribute is the Corey Anne Celebration of Women in the Arts, and this year marks the second annual event, Aug. 4 - Sept. 10 at the Florence Thomas Art School in Ashe County, NC.
The event is funded through gifts to the Corey Anne Fund established by the art school. Corey and her brother and sister were raised initially in Ashe County, and the Corey Anne Celebration of Women in the Arts celebrates female artists in Ashe County.
Sponsor of the event, the Paul and Florence Thomas Memorial Art School, is a 501 C-3 Private Foundation with the mission to provide resources for instruction, exhibition, and experience in the fine arts, master crafts and heritage crafts for Ashe County and the region. Corey would really love to know that this goes on in her name.
