Colleen Rockey will be working on the 1974 Mural Restoration Project in Kalamazoo for the month of June.   Colleen originally painted the mural when she was a new graduate of Western Michigan University with a BFA in painting.   “I was excited for  the opportunity.  I submitted an abstract landscape and won a First Place Award and the stipend for the wall facing what is now known as Corporation Alley.  I view my restoration of this public art as a benefit for the City of Kalamazoo and a gift to the people who reside there.”


Nancy MacLachlan‘s “April in Chicago” was juried into the Great Lakes Pastel Society National Member Show .  The show runs through July 6 at the Holland Arts Council.
