GREAT OAKS BANK UNVEILS LOCAL ART EXHIBIT AT EASTMAN OFFICE
Commissioned Artwork Features Local Historical Sites
(EASTMAN, GEORGIA)—Great Oaks Bank today unveiled original paintings of three historically significant buildings which will be displayed permanently in the Eastman office lobby. As a part of the bank’s interior and landscaping renovations at its main office, Great Oaks commissioned local artist Lacey Eason to create watercolor paintings of the historic Dodge County Courthouse, the Eastman House and the Railroad Depot. These historic properties are located in downtown Eastman.
“Many historic structures have fallen into disrepair and we risk losing them over time,” said Butch Kirkley, President of Great Oaks Bank. “Lacey did an awesome job of capturing the essence of three special, historically significant buildings in our community. This display honors our heritage and legacy in Dodge County.”
Kirkley also said that Great Oaks is extending an invitation for the public to stop in to see the local art exhibit during regular business hours.
A Macon native, Eason is a graduate of the University of Georgia. She owns Lacey Eason Designs, LLC and specializes in landscape design and custom watercolor paintings. Eason resides in Eastman with her husband Ken and daughters Molly (3) and Hannah (1). She is an active member of the Arts Guild of Dodge County.
