County Executive Janet S. Owens with artist William Wells and his daughter, Rachel Wells
Annapolis, MD (March 22, 2006) - Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens accepted an oil painting from a Millersville man, which will be housed in the new North Arundel Aquatic Center.
"I accept this painting, on behalf of the County, with great enthusiasm and pride," said County Executive Owens.
The artist, William Wells and his daughter Rachel presented the painting to Ms. Owens as a way to thank the County for building the new Aquatic Center, which is slated to open later this year.
"My daughter has benefited from the Annapolis aquatic centers in the County and since I love painting as much as my daughter loves swimming, we thought it was a perfect match," said artist William Wells.
The 30"x 15" oil painting will be placed in the reception area of the North Arundel Aquatic Center.
