bac's Featured Artist of the Week

As you all know the bac is revamping it's giftshop and because of this, we want you to get to know our artists a little better.  This week we want to introduce a very special artist in our community, Otis Littlejohn.  He was born in Shiloh, Texas on August 25, 1921 to a family of six boys and five girls.  He graduated from Linden High School and went on to join the United States Navy in 1941, where he served on the U.S.S Long in WWII.  He married Anna Krupta in 1947 and they had three children.  He became a master cabinet builder and spent the majority of his career at Custom-Bilt Cabinet and Supply.  His beautiful wood pieces are a testament to his craftmanship and his intense patriotism. Check out the new bac gift shop facebook page for images of Mr. Littlejohns' work and the other great artists featured.
