Thursday evening, May 10, Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts hosted a reception to honor the Founding Artists of the Monroe Art Guild.
Our ten Founding Artists were recognized and honored by Mayor John Howard who presented each with a Certificate of Appreciation:
These two members have passed away but a selection of their works are included in the Founders Show:
The show also includes a beautiful and informative video produced by Denis and Mary Vogel: “A Storm, a Community and a Group of Artists” that features interviews with many of the Founders plus photographs from those early years, including the devastation of the storm of 1993 which played a part in kick-starting the Art Guild.
The Founders Show closes May 24. Don’t miss this fabulous show!
