PORT HURON, Michigan — The Port Huron Museum has received approval to sell four more of its paintings as part of an effort to fund improvements.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports (http://bwne.ws/1pKA44D ) City Council on Monday night gave its OK for the $4,000 sale.

The sale will bring the number of paintings by Canadian artists sold by the museum to 15. In 2013, the council approved selling 11 paintings by James Henderson and Augustus Kenderdine to the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, for $23,000.

The latest paintings being sold are titled "Horse Head," ''The Last Days, Advance from Valencia to Mons," ''Elephants and Natives," and "Black Oxen," all by Inglis Sheldon-Williams. Susan Bennett, executive director of the museum, says the paintings will be better displayed and appreciated at the Mendel gallery.
