October Featured Artists – Lois Engberg & Dana Simson

October is probably our favorite month. Pleasantly warm days and cool nights are welcomed. Harvested fields and the Harvest Moon mean fall is here. So it is nice to have Lois Engberg is our featured artist for the start of fall. We will also reintroduce Dana Simson to our visitors. Lois is an artist who paints beautiful still lifes of whatever is blooming seasonally. This show will include sunflowers but also landscapes and seascapes. My favorite is a nocturne, Moonshine. Since Lois has shown with us 15 years people always anticipate the beauty of her subjects and her talent. Check her website and her album on our Facebook page.

Dana, her husband John and their children, Ruby and Eli, were featured artists in 2005. As you can image Ruby and Eli are adults now on their own. Dana and John no longer operate out of their gallery in Salisbury preferring to work from home. Dana still creates ceramics, artwork and home decor selling mostly on line. She has recently written Come Together, a wonderful guidebook for retooling our daily lives with simple changes to help the environment. She will be showing things that fly – moths and birds. Her website shows how Dana uses all of her talents and interests. Also check her album on our Facebook page.
