Art museum could open Victorian doors by mid-July

An older home that seemed to be the center of attention by a slew of construction workers for more than a year, but which seemed to be unchanged on the outside, has taken on a new look.

The exterior of the soon-to-be art museum is changing from a dark green to authentic Victorian colors. James E. Winner Jr. said the interior is done.

Painting was the last obstacle.

``It's reasonable to assume that it could be open by mid-July,'' Winner said.

The art museum will feature a variety of works, including bronze-leafed statues and paintings. Most are replicas of famous works.

Winner said he is trying to add to the cultural aspects of the community _ something he believes plays into the quality of life.

``I love art and antiques,'' said the man who has a penchant for ornate objects from Asia. ``I think it's because I can't do anything with my hands and I appreciate people who can do that. It's the handcrafted things that I can't do.''
