It is ART that makes life, makes interest, makes importance,
and I know of no substitute for the FORCE and BEAUTY of its process.
~ Henry James

The art of drawing is one of the simplest forms of human communication. Millennial in its traditions and still a favorite among artists for its line, tonal qualities and textures. Now, since the advent of color pencil technology, the combination of colored pigments and wax and oil based binders has opened up new medium breakthroughs from emerging students to advance professionals. Join us for an evening of Color Pencil on Exhibit.

Roger Cooke Mural Restoration

By Becky Hawley


We finished the Peaceful Vistas mural on the side of Ace Hardware! The mural was almost lost, but now has an entirely new coat of paint. The only part not repainted, was Roger Cooke’s signature.

Wy'east Artisans Guild - Roger Cooke Mural

Pam Smithsted and I are both Sandy Arts Commissioners and are the lead artists. Micaiah Meyer, Vern Groff and Marcia Morrow, who is also a Sandy Arts Commissioner, participated in the restoration. We had a total of over 281 hours of prep and painting…a big job, but we enjoyed it.

A big thank you to all who participated!
