Waynesboro Artist Uses Her Gift to Help Children with Learning Disabilities

Posted: Updated:
WAYNESBORO, Va. (WVIR) -

A Waynesboro artist opened her home to the public Saturday to showcase her work and raise money for a charity she feels personally connected to. 

Patricia Buckley Moss's annual Summer Barn Show featured various forms of art work, including quilts, paintings and jewelry.

Moss was born with dyslexia, and now uses the Summer Barn Show to raise money for her foundation, the P Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education.

Moss said, "I just think it's so wonderful people with learning differences can be offered an education and can give gifts to the world."

Some of the event's proceeds will also go toward scholarships and donations to Virginia Tech's teaching program, which shows students how to teach children with learning disabilities.

Moss will be signing paintings on Sunday July 8, at her gallery in Downtown Waynesboro.
