MO ART


In addition to Marilyn
we are also hosting


They are two of the nicest artists you could ever want to know

When my dad passed away in his belongings was a nude
signed by A.Gormley
Many years later, I was showing an artist friend, Len Slesick, the piece and he said,
"why, that's Amy Winton"
(Gormley was a former name)
What a treasure I had and didn't even know it!

When I first encountered Doug,
he was being featured for his work that included old love letters he had found in the walls of home in Lipscomb County between a Texas woman and her French soldier...
"He was just looking to gather antique wood from a forgotten farmhouse, but he found so much more."

When I saw them pull up to 822 today, I could scarcely contain myself!
Oh man...I gotta feelin' this art walk is gonna be good!

we've also been practicing our Hors d'Oeuvres

woooooohooooo!

I'm wild with envy and I want to be there! As someone who worked behind the scenes to nurture artists (musical and theatrical) most of my life, I know that nothing is more rewarding. Any chance of seeing a teeny bit of the love letters? ~ Maureen
