STARS for October. The creative talents of featured artists Jane Bolt, Sue Boswell and Mark Kachleinon display. Reception October 3, 4–7pm.
Bolt was born and lived most of her life in the Midwest. She and her husband retired to Central Oregon almost 11 years ago. Jane spent her life working with crafts of all kinds. After Jane retired, she was drawn to jewelry design. At first Jane made jewelry for herself and as gifts. With encouragement, she began selling her jewelry in local stores and galleries.
Boswell grew up in Southern California where she entered her first county fair at the age of five. Since those early days, her life has been clearly marked by a passion for creative expression. Sue spent time in England, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and has lived in Idaho for the past 17 years. Mountains, oceans and wildlife are among her favorite subjects. Sue’s preferred medium is watercolor.
Kachlein states, “The first 37 years of my life were spent trying very hard to be someone and something other than who I was and what I wanted to be. This little endeavor did not work.” For the past 17 years, Mark’s days have been filled with designing, hammering, grinding, bending, cutting, welding, carving and balancing the two elements he loves most—stone and steel.
