Art will benefit center

South Portland artist Ruth Gorton will show her paintings at People’s United Bank, 188 Route 1, Falmouth, throughout September, which are available to purchase, with 50 percent of proceeds donated in the buyers’ name to The Preble Street Resource Center in Portland.

The mission of Preble Street is to provide accessible barrierfree services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger and poverty, and to advocate for solutions to these problems.

In 2007 Gorton began a daily painting project. The works are smaller pieces, taken from the daily painting collection.
