Interim residents and staff were treated to an art exhibition by award-winning local artist Barbara Monning on March 29th at the Our Voices community room. The exhibit showcased her vivid watercolor paintings. Marie Woodruff helped organize the affair, which was attended by over 50 people. The watercolors included abstract images of colors floating and mixing, and still lifes of floral arrangements.
In addition to the creative expansion, Barbara finds art provides an avenue to regain her own peace and grounding. “The serenity of creating artwork takes me from times of confusion to clear thinking and problem-solving. My art has been the vehicle for me to attain a peaceful sense of self-awareness connected to friends, family, and community.” Barbara also produces work in other mediums including ceramics and collages. How lucky we are to enjoy the fruits of her endeavors!
