This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Covered Bridge Art Association, the 25th year on the Square in Rockville, and their 36th Spring Art Show. Those Tri Kappa members had high hopes for the organization they helped form, but you wonder if even they knew it would be the beginning of what is now one of oldest (and best, pardon the prejudice) art assoaciations in the Wabash Valley. Three of the original group are still active members: Delores Collings, Louise Michael, and Lois Sciotto.
Everyone is invited to join in this special celebration. Also, enjoy the special window displays with both the past and present depicted. Refreshments will be served during the Opening Night, Thursday, from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Door prizes consisting of an oil by Carol Nickey, colored pencil by Ellen Shaffer, and a water color by Robert Whitmore. There is no charge for any of these.
Those attending through the weekend may vote for "The Most Popular" award.
Chiz Henrichs of Brazil, will judge the art work. She is a graduate of the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and taught there several years. She also has classes in her studio. Her art has been exhibited all over the U.S. including California, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico. She is well known for her watercolor and porcelain painting.
This year's show is dedicated to the memory of former member, Eda Pastore.
