Ann Smotherman :: “For my whole life, I have been drawing and painting and have many works from my childhood. The style has changed to some extent.
The interest in and love of art HAVE actually shaped my life and created marvelous friendships.” Ann has taught Art Appreciation Courses for Motlow College for 20 years and holds a MA in Art History from the University of Georgia, Athens.
Jimmilu Smith :: “These paintings are a result of my early years on the farm. Some are from my travels and some from my love of flowers and the Shady Grove Garden Club. The portraits are from my interest and love of people.”
Joanna Seiber :: “It all began with a coloring book. Then moving on, while taking a nap, I etched a mural in the headboard of the bed with a straight pin. In my teen years, I designed numerous house floor plans with the desire to become an architect. That dream never materialized, however, I did have a first minor in art in college. Prior to marriage, I was hired as an advertising layout artist for The Tennessean. I began doing oil paintings, became associated with the Fine Arts Center and a group with whom I have painted for over twenty years. My painting has been a fulfilling experience for me as I enjoy being identified through my artistic achievements.
