I have been President of Rainbow Springs Art since March 2020 and have been watching this little gallery evolve into a cornerstone of Dunnellon. With over 35 artists to manage, witnessing some of the accolades they receive is so exhilarating.
The public radio station WUFT, from the University of Florida, Gainesville and with PBS Broadcasting ran a campaign called Artistry in Motion. It featured artists from all venues in Central Florida. Three of the artist from RSA were featured, one being me. It was a great experience when a professional video crew, lights, camera, action came to the gallery for the interview. They let me prattle on for 20 minutes and then edited it down to this wonderful vignette. I hope you enjoy it too! The radio version is now airing. I was surprised to get into my car and hear myself on the radio! All in fun!
The Gals dominate Hookin for Habitat May 2022! For the second year I was asked to paint the trophies for the Missy King's Hookin for Habitat fishing tournament. This raises money to build houses for Habitat for Humanity in Marion County. I was thrilled to do this. I do not know a lot about fish. My first real Florida fishing experience was only after living here for four years. But with a little research, fish are very artsy! These metal cutouts are designed by Kustom Glass Awards in Crystal River and then handed to me for the details. They were presented at the final weigh in to the winners of four divisions: Trout, Redfish, Cobia and Catfish. This year all four divisions were won by women! You Go Girls!
