Art show in Williams features local artist

The artwork of JP Powell will be on display June 17 in Williams.

The Eddie Johnson Heart Disease Fund will sponsor the one-day event, titled “Re-Kreated Imperfection” at the Williams Community Center.

“This is a great way to support an artist from Colusa County,” said former Williams City Councilman Eddie Johnson. “It’s a good thing to showcase our local talent, and it gives the artist, who is from Williams, a little exposure.”

The event also increases awareness of heart disease and the Eddie Johnson Heart Disease Fund, which Johnson founded after he suffered a near-fatal heart attack more than a decade ago.

Heart disease refers to several types of heart conditions, the most common of which is coronary artery disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Coronary artery disease decreases blood flow to the heart, which can cause a heart attack.

Every year, about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack, which is about one every 43 seconds. Of these, 525,000 are a first heart attack; 210,000 happen to people who have already had at least one heart attack, the CDC said.

People can reduce their risk for a heart attack by living a health lifestyle. Keeping blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar at normal levels can also lower the risk for heart disease and heart attack.

A healthy lifestyle includes eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough exercise, and avoiding tobacco and alcohol use, the CDC said.

The Eddie Johnson Heart Disease Fund is a non-profit fund managed by the Community Foundation of Colusa County.

There is no admission to get into the art show, but donations can be made to the Heart Disease Fund, which helps support community events such as the Mexican Independence Day Celebration and annual Antique Show.
