At Home

I come from a family of artists, and this weekend I was able to remember with friends and family my Grandma and her artistic endeavors, world travels, and great appreciation for beauty in the the world around her. Currently showing at the Sauder Visual Arts Center at Bluffton College -the "Sauder Family Artists" exhibition includes works from the siblings Kathryn Sauder Moore (my Grandma), Carlton Sauder , and Carolyn Sauder Rich. The opening reception for the art exhibit is May 3, 2008 from 1-2:30 pm - it will be up through May 11th.

Kathryn Sauder Moore
circa 1954

I feel very fortunate to come from a family with such a wealth of creativity. I especially loved this particular piece she did:

Kathryn Sauder Moore, "At Home in Grabill", Oil on Canvas, circa 1950s
Kathryn Sauder Moore, "At Home in Grabill" (detail), Oil on Canvas, circa 1950s
The Sauder home in Grabill, Indiana from around the 1930s.

Kathryn Moore
Rest in Peace Grandma.
