Our March speaker, James Brown was enjoyed by all! We are looking forward to hearing Jesse Ghere Feather present Scrimshaw Art Demonstration on April 21st. Wildlife as a subject, has been her main interest. She also does portraits and works in many mediums, though Scrimshaws, pastels and oils are the main mediums she enjoys. She likes the viewer to become involved with the art piece with their emotions as well as enjoying the images. "I paint what I know, what I see, and what I have experienced." Jessie is from Tulsa, OK.


Linda Dunbar received a certificate for an art competition at the Light Space & Time Gallery in Florida. there were over 900 entries in the competition. The same painting also won first prize in Fine Art America Artist of the Week. Congratulations to Judy McLane who won a painting donated by Richard Coones.
