Thank You

We would like to extend a very warm and appreciative THANK YOU to both Kar Shepard and Karen Jesko for Co-Chairing this year's Fall Member Art Show.  Also we would like to thank each of their husbands for volunteering… or succumbing to spousal influence - for their help in setting up the show.  Also to Dennis Velco for the use of his truck and time in transporting the screens as well as he and Nancy St. Clair for set up assistance.  Thank you to Bev Goldie for doing a great job at hanging most of the art during take-in.  She strives to arrange the artwork in relation to the rest of the collection - it's not an easy job to do.  Thanks much to Valerie Bowerman for keeping the finances and legal side on track during the art take-in.  Further thank you to Gina Atwell for the refreshment and meeting area set up help.  Last but not least, thanks to all who brought refreshment goodies to share.

We still have the art pick up which included the screen take down and transportation back to the storage facility.  Many of the named above persons will again be volunteering during that effort.  Should you like to help out, please contact Karen Jesko at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Being an art exhibition judge is a tough job.  Especially tough with the wide array of art mediums and styles our group has.  A big thank you to our judge Susan Hidy who's comments are below in the "Award Recipients" section.  

About the Show Judge

Susan Hidy is an Ohio native who has always had an interest in the arts. Drawing and portraiture was a strong interest in younger years which led to a degree in the fine arts, graduating with a BFA in 1980 with an emphasis on drawing and painting. Susan free lanced for several years after college and took a job in an art gallery and custom frame shop. This became a strong interest and in 1989 opened The Final Touch Art and Frame Gallery in Dublin, Ohio and pursued this for ten years. After being closed for nearly 12 years Susan will be starting a framing business again under a new name November 1, 2012.
