Remembering Troy Weidenheimer

It is with sadness to tell you that Troy Weidenheimer passed away in September after a long battle with cancer.  Troy was kind enough to do a workshop for us last fall despite his failing health.  Not only did we learn a lot about art from him, but much about his life as a modern Renaissance man who studied science, was a speech writer, and played and taught music professionally, even becoming friends with the famed Jerry Garcia.

He was a kind, intelligent and talented man that will be missed by many.

Art Show at Bridgewater College

Member Judi Ely is being honored by her alma mater, Bridgewater College, with a showing of about 20 of her paintings in the Kline Campus Center throughout the month of October. One of her paintings in the show, above, is entitled, “Magnifying Life”.

As Judi notes,

“In October, I have a show of my work at Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, Va coinciding with my alumni class reunion on October 19. There is a reception on Monday, Sept 30, 5:00-7:00PM which includes an artist talk and another reception on October 19, 10-11:00AM.

It would be great if you are able to come by the show.”

Judi is donating her painting, below, to the school for the October 19 class dinner and silent auction.
