Artists rise above disabilities

(Continued)

— A gallery exhibit featuring the works of Danville native Andrew Dudich will be shown, beginning Nov. 9. This man’s art rocks! You should not miss it.

— From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, Art Journaling and Making Books with Jacqueline Worden and Lois Dickenson will be held. (Yes, Jackie is from Danville and has been my friend since we were in high school when we rode dinosaurs to school. Well, maybe not dinosaurs.) Lunch and materials will be included in the cost. The cost is $50.

— Workday for the Christmas Shoppe will be 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 16.

— Our open studio time for artists: 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday through Saturday, as well as 6-9 p.m. All classes and workshops are still $50 for members and $50 for non-members. Please register by calling the Danville Art League at 442-9264. We would love to have you.

— On Dec. 7, there will be a free children’s workshop making Christmas ornaments. Each child must be accompanied by a parent or grandparent. This is so much fun for the children. Please plan on attending.

A simple update on Kem Wiggins: She is a busy girl. Yes, she is still short, but that’s OK because we love her. Being short has not prevented her from doing many murals lately, and doing them quite well. Yes, I have at times carried her in my pocket, but hey, look at the price of gas!

If you love art, breathe art, see art in everything around you, admire the art of others, or simply yearn to create, please call us. The Danville Art League is your kind of place. 442-9264 is our number.

Eileen Dunavan is a member of the Danville Art League. Her column appears once a month.
