Fans of the incomparable Dolly Parton can now put their love for her music on display with a new collection of wall art called “From the HeART.”
Created by Parton in conjunction with the Grand Ole Opry and available only through Kirkland’s, the collection features nine special pieces — eight of which are inspired some of Parton’s best-known songs and beautifully interpreted on canvas by artist David Diskin, plus an iconic black and white performance photograph of Dolly, taken at the Ryman Auditorium in 2015.
A delicate pair of golden angel wings represents “If I Had Wings.” Meanwhile, a tree with stylized mountains created by patchwork fabric patterns recalls “Blue Valley Songbird,” a guitar-infused butterfly mimics “Love Is Like a Butterfly,” and more, all in natural tones with a decidedly rustic feel.
The project is meant to commemorate Parton’s 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and a portion of proceeds will benefit the Opry Trust Fund which offers financial assistance to those struggling to chase their dreams in the country music industry.
“I am very excited to be working with Steve Woodward and all of the folks at Kirkland’s,” Parton says. “I’m real honored to have the great artist David Diskin make my songs come to life with these great paintings.”
Parton just released a remix of For King & Country’s “God Only Knows,” and looking ahead, she’ll will be following her Golden Globe nominated film Dumplin’ with another blast of must-watch content. Netflix will release an eight part anthology film series called Heartstrings this fall, with each individual episode based on one of Parton’s beloved songs.
