Washington County Arts Council Inc. Board President James Pierne recently presented a check for $868.75 to the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts Foundation.

The check, given to foundation president Cynthia Perini, represented a portion of the proceeds of an arts council exhibit titled "The Eye of a Washington County Collector, A Selection from the Collection of Clifford T. Springer."

The exhibit was made possible by Springer, a foundation board member and owner of Benjamin Art Gallery. The exhibit, a selection of original artwork from Springer's personal collection, consisted of 30 original paintings collected from the best 19th- and 20th-century artists that found their way to the local area.
