Grandpa Blue Company Supports Namesake’s Art Exhibition
Grandpa Earle F. Dexter’s Art Collected For A One-Day Celebration
"This is a truly amazing family with great talent. We're happy to donate our products and our time to honor such a creative man," says Kelly, artist, granddaughter and co-founder of Grandpa Blue Company. "Grandpa's spirit lives through our company. His creativity, kindness, and integrity are our core values. This is a great way to celebrate his artistic success, and his family's ongoing creativity."
The site of the art show, Grace United Methodist Church, is no accident. Earle Dexter, born in Riverside, was one of the founding members of the church in 1907. The church will receive a portion of any proceeds from the art show. His daughter, Margaret (84), is still an active member of the church. She remembers, "Some of Pop's first paintings were donated to this church to be sold for fund raising. He's done a lot of local art, including the Peace Tower and Mission Inn. How incredible it will be that his family and his art will return to the church for a glorious day of celebration."
Grandpa Blue Company is donating several sets of their Bear Hug Clamps to the church to sell during the show. In addition, the management team at Grandpa Blue is volunteering their time to the show. "A few of us will head to Riverside and participate in the show," says Kelly. "After all, how can we call ourselves Grandpa Blue and not help show off all of his great work?" The company takes their name from the fact that Grandpa Dexter always painted the handles of his tools a particular shade of turquoise blue – Grandpa Blue as it is now known.
More information about the upcoming exhibition can be found at The World In Art website.
