Dr. Elsa Bekkala led a meaningful presentation on Saturday, Nov 27, 2021, of the 7 Covid 19 Memorial Portraits our members painted and drew. We were proud of the beautiful paintings and drawings made as a tribute to the victims of Covid 19. The 65 family members and friends attending appreciated the effort we made to honor their loved one.
With the help of local donors we were able to prepare 100 bags full of art supplies to be given to children in military families as a way to help make them feel special.
We hope you enjoy this video of sculptor Steve Shields work and life. He left us too young but his work remains for us to enjoy. A big "Thank You" goes to Dan Stahl, with ccprovideo.com, for creating this wonderful tribute to Steve. A book of his life and works is sale in our Gallery shop here on the website. We appreciate our patrons and donors that helped make this possible.
