High Desert Art League (HDAL) artists Jacqueline Newbold and Janice Rhodes, March into Art to April 15.
A new and exciting exhibit, Wild and Free, will be showing starting April 15 thru May 19. Oil and Acrylic paintings by two High Desert Art League artists, David Kinker and JM Brodrick, will be featured with an artists’ reception on opening night, April 15, Friday from 5-7pm.
Brodrick, who is a new member of HDAL, studied painting in her youth and received her first scholarship at the age of 13. Her grandmother, who was a professional artist from Helsinki ,Finland, guided her love of the arts. She grew up in a working artist environment.
Kinker is a painter, muralist and teacher. Besides doing art he is an avid outdoorsman, guiding on the Deschutes, kayaking and hiking. He feels equally at home guiding a raft full of adventurers though the most scenic rivers of the northwest, to guiding the minds of aspiring artists helping them discover their inner muse. David is well known for his murals in many regional landmarks including the Tower Theatre and St. Charles Medical Center and for his intricate abstracts which have won many awards.
