Summer Delight Art Exhibit

Summer Delight

Summer Delight Art Exhibit

Jean McIntosh’s work captures the intersection between the physical and spiritual. She focuses mostly on reflections and refractions of light in water. By the combination of color, texture and surface pattern, she expresses her inner spirit. The art of being present in the moment determines her every step. Beauty, motion, collections and autobiographical experiences are popular themes. Jean received her M.F. A. from Texas Woman’s University. She is in the permanent collections of Mountain View Community College, Brookhaven Community College and the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Celebration of Life Art Exhibit

Beauty, love, and motion portrayed through colors, values and design are favorite themes in the paintings of Judith Srite Campbell. After a lengthy career departure, Judith recently rekindled her love with art. From studying in Paris and Switzerland as a young girl to being one of the artist-owners of The Highland Park Art Gallery, founding the Artists’ Showplace Gallery and becoming a partner in the new Frisco Fine Art Gallery, art has always been in her blood.

Parkinson’s Art Exhibit

The Parkinson’s Creativity Phenomenon

Parkinson’s Art Exhibit

This show features the work of three artists: Tim Scheer, Judy VanDermeer, and Judy Williamson.  Each is blessed with what is sometimes called the Parkinson’s Creativity Phenomenon.  Often times Parkinson’s, or the treatment for Parkinson’s awakens or enhances artistic or other creative skills. Sometimes it even brings out skills that were previously completely hidden and other times it enhances or improves upon creative talents that were already evident.
