Rescued from the chopping block: Local artists keep Fort Verde Days Art Show alive

Idell LeGendre remembers when the annual Fort Verde Days art show almost went the way of the dodo bird.Had the local watercolor artist not stepped in to run this year's show, it too would have flown the coop.LeGendre and her friend Claudia Ward were not too happy when they first heard nobody was able to run this year's art show. Their fear was that if the show takes a sabbatical, then it would never return.
