The ladies of the , which meets every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. is open to the public.
Bobbie Hague, Deb Osbun, Carol Hague, Jolene Ratzlaff and Hallie Rucker have been painting together all year in preparation for this month’s Walkabout Gallery show.
The women have a variety of paintings, prints and some folk-art on display at the Walkabout Gallery.
“We have been painting for years with Dorothy Young, who passed a couple years ago, and she invited us to paint with her and we just kept coming back,” said Bobbie Hague.
The group is informal and members simply paint for their own enjoyment and for the fellowship.
“We haven’t had any lessons, we just like painting and being together. We all became friends. We would probably be painting at home but it is good to get together,” said Rucker.
Osbun said working around fellow artists improves her abilities.
“It is good to see what others are doing and encourage each other to keep going. We hear comments and feedback,” she said.
