Portrait of JRR Tolkien
“And some things
that should not have been
forgotten were lost.
History became legend.
Legend became myth.”
― JRR Tolkien
in The Lord of the Rings

He, too, was a soldier during the First World War. Some scenes in his books are a reflection on his experiences.

Luann, creative mentor and former board member, shared this in the last open studio:

“Creativity belongs to the artist in each of us.
To create means to relate.
The root meaning of the word art is ‘to fit together’
and we all do this every day.
Not all of us are painters but we are all artists.
Each time we fit things together we are creating
– whether it is to make a loaf of bread, a child, a day.”
Corita Kent
