An art show to honor the memory of a local artist is planned for May 16.
Nicole Parlette began taking art classes at The Art Attack, 215 W. Elm St. in Sycamore, while she was still a student in high school. After graduation, she joined the Art Attack Artist Co-op and taught at the community art school.
Parlette died in December 2012. A fund has been started at The Art Attack in her memory to provide scholarships for low-income children to attend art classes. On May 16 – Parlette’s birthday – The Art Attack is planning an art show from 6 to 8 p.m. to benefit the Nikki Fund.
There will be art, including some by Parlette, sold at the show. Donations to the fund also are welcome. The event also will include artists creating on-site and special events throughout the evening, and will conclude with a balloon salute.
