GA Voice columnist and All News 106.7 radio personality Melissa Carter will host a night of art to celebrate the creative works of her mother, Millie Pete Carter. The event, called "The Way I See It," will be held Thursday, Nov. 15, at Muse & Co. in Roswell and will benefit Vision Rehabilitation Services of Georgia.
“My Mom, Millie Pete, has been an artist and art teacher all her life, and even though she is losing her vision she is still creating art,” Melissa Carter said of the upcoming event. “This Thursday we are going to display and sell a variety of her pieces at an event called The Way I See It, to benefit Vision Rehabilitation Services of Georgia.”
Mille Pete is suffering from macular degeneration, a medical condition which ultimately results in the loss of vision. Melissa wrote about her mom's condition, and all that she has learned from her mother, in a March 2012 GA Voice column:
