This month’s Kudo’s goes out to all the Artists who have worked so hard to make September happen:
- The Gallery – Susan Woodworth, Holly Kroening, Jeanne Kelley Brown, Cheri Bosserman, Yelena Shabrova, Trieste Andrews, and all the artists who applied for the first rotation
- SAGE project – Tamara Scott, Lynda Orzen, Kerry Edwards, Trieste Andrews, Yelena Shabrova, and all the Artists who submitted their work
- The Heritage Figures – Lucas Nickerson, Tamara Scott, Olivia Scott, Susan Woodworth, Judy Haas, Heather Merrifield, and Trieste Andrews
- The Mural Code – Trieste Andrews, Lynda Orzen, and Yelena Shabrova
And let’s give a big shout out to some of our unsung heroes – the supportive husbands, families and friends who somehow get roped into most of the things we do. They not only sacrifice their personal time with us so we can pursue our passions but help out as well. John Woodworth who traveled back and forth to Salem with his wife Sue picking up slat boards for the gallery rooms, and then cutting and mounting them in the Gallery. Roger Rau, Trieste Andrews’ husband, who laid in the gallery carpets, made the boards for the Heritage Figures, and mounted new hanging kits in the café. And all of our wives, husbands, children and friends who support us every step of the way, who understand that “10 more minutes” on an art project sometimes turns into another hour – and understand that our passion for art is who we are – and love us anyway.
