Internationally renowned artist Steve Penley recently completed a painting of the new Greek Village for the University of West Georgia Foundation, Inc. The artwork was commissioned by Randall Redding, immediate past chair of the UWG Foundation Board of Trustees and general contractor for R.K. Redding Construction, Inc., the company responsible for building the new complex for fraternity and sorority members.
Dr. Michael Ruffner, vice president of University Advancement, expressed his gratitude to Penley for his role in commemorating an important time in the university’s history, as well as to Redding for initiating the process. “We are very appreciative to Randall for his classy gesture,” he said.
“We are honored to have an artist of Mr. Penley’s caliber among us in the community, and we are delighted with the results of his hard work,” said Susan Fleck, current chair of the UWG Foundation Board of Trustees.
