Thanks to the generosity of artist Homer Hacker’s family, a group of watercolors by the well-known Dayton artist will be auctioned at Sugar Creek Presbyterian Church, 4417  Bigger Road, Kettering, on April 19.

Hacker, who passed away at the age of 96 in 2013, was art director/chief photographer for the Dayton Daily News from 1945 through 1957, and was best-known for his lovely watercolor paintings.  He was a member of Sugar Creek Presbyterian.

The 34 paintings will be displayed in the Fellowship Hall of the church with bidding for the silent auction beginning at 11:15 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m.  Monies raised will go to the church’s Building for Outreach program.  For more information, call Carolyn Berry at 937-434-8494.
