Volunteer of the Month: Cynthia Baroody

Cynthia has been volunteering here at the Art Center for a little over a decade. She finds the Art Center to be a fun environment and finds it a great pleasure to meet people from all across the states. She also shared that she always takes a piece of the Art Center back to gift her family in New York.

Cynthia is also active with the Jackson River Garden Club, GFWC, and the Clifton Forge Woman's Club. In her free time she enjoys looking for wild flowers with her husband, birdwatching, and teaching others about nature.

Wish List Wednesday:

Martha McMullan, who was a previous volunteer here at the Art Center, stopped by to give us a visit. We thought that it’d be fun to ask her to find her favorites in the shop. Martha expressed a love for landscape paintings and Asian style art, and remembered admiring the art of Virginia Davies, who painted the yellow bird with purple flowers pictured below.

All of these items are available for purchase, so if you see something you like let us know!

Today we are welcoming our new summer intern, Heidi Martin! Heidi is currently a student at Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City and is working toward a degree in secondary education.

“I’m interested in the way local communities represent art and I’m eager to see this side of the arts community within my own hometown.”
