Art Shows

Artist of the Month:
Ruth Drysdale

The art of Ruth Drysdale will be on display in the lobby gallery throughout the month of April 2018.

Artist’s statement: “I believe that all human beings have the spirit of creativity in their hearts. That is all it takes for me to continue making pictures, an attempt to communicate without words the love and creativity in my heart.”
A reception with the artist will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 13, 2018.
