ART DISPLAY
On Life's Path: An Art Exhibit
September 7-October 6
Sandra King has been a painter for her entire adult life, working in oil and pastel, and recently in acrylics. A spiritual person, she finds peace and joy in images of nature, especially birds and flowers. When she is not painting, she reads Christian inspirational writing and enjoys kidding around with people. Sandy’s passion for the human spirit can be seen in her often imaginative pieces. Contact Sandra at jennyking86@gmail.com.
Carl’s life took a different direction than he had planned after he retired from the everyday hustle and bustle: he learned he had Parkinson’s disease, which necessitated a less active lifestyle. Needing something to keep him occupied, he tried painting. For the past nine years, he has tried to put on canvas what he sees in his mind. Contact Carl at 716-713-1542.
