The art in January is by Judith Tuttle, who paints landscapes which include water with Lake Champlain, local rivers, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the Caribbean Sea acting as inspirations. She recently changed medium to painting with oils, and hopes she conveys to those looking at her water scenes the rhythm of water and waves moving effortlessly in their dance.
The silent auction for January is a group of five Little Women collectible plates. Bidding will start on Wednesday, January 2 at 10 AM and close on Thursday January 31st at 8 PM.
