Yadkin County Sheriff Ricky Oliver is featured in new painting by Stokes County artist Frank Duncan.
The artwork depicts several lawmen or “revenuers” disposing of a moonshine still. Also featured in the painting are Stokes County Sheriff Mike Marshall, Sheriff Sam Page of Rockingham County and former Surry County Sheriff Graham Atkinson.
Duncan said that Marshall approached him about three years ago to do the painting. He said he immediately thought of doing the moonshine theme.
He has other artwork with old west themes, and the moonshine theme, he said, is always a popular one as well.
There are 250 prints available and will be sold for $85 a piece. Each print features the signatures of each of the sheriffs as well as Duncan’s. Proceeds will go to four different nonprofits chosen by each of the sheriffs.
To purchase a print, contact Duncan at 336-871-2921 or email@example.com or write to 1640 Duggins Road, Madison, N.C. 27025.
