Leesburg -- An audience in Lee County got a blast from the past with a performance by artist Randy Taylor.

The event at the Lee County Public Library was part of the Eighth Annual Southwest Georgia Regional Art Show and Sale.

Randy Taylor's performance was a nice break from the paintings and sculptures on display.

"He does a lot of performance pieces like this "Visit with Van Gogh", he does other artist as well like Rembrandt and others," said Lee County Public Library Assistant Director, Gloria Barton. "But we knew he was a performer and we wanted a live sort of show to go with the visual that was on display."

Thirty-eight paintings and sculptures are on display at Lee County's Public Library. Art collectors are able to purchase any of the pieces.
