We meet whenever an opportunity arises that appears interesting. We toured the General Crook House in December and then enjoyed lunch at the Sage Bistro at Metropolitan Community College. We are always on the lookout for new exhibits and enjoy a drive to outlying communities. We often walk through the Lauritzen Gardens just to see what is in bloom. Check back for our next excursion!
The Fine Arts Group met October 2nd to view the Sacred Threads Exhibition at the St. Cecelia Cathedral Gallery. The artwork was intricate, amazing, and inspiring. Afterward the group had lunch at Mark’s Restaurant. Especially fun was celebrating the birthday of delightful Adah Earle! All smiles tell the story of friendships celebrated. In the group picture below those pictured more or less from left to right are: Darlene Anderson, Claudianna Todd, Mary Beth Gust, Janelle Davis, Adah Earle, Cynthia Swanson, Pam Hamel, Belinda Greiner, Sharon Mendlick, and Margery Woodman.
The group is considering a road trip to the Des Moines Art Center to view the work of El Anutsui. Details to follow.
