VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH - linda richards
The Desert Art Center is pleased to announce that Linda Richards is the Volunteer of the Month. Linda serves as secretary on the DAC’s Board of Governors.
Linda is an adventurer, naturalist, environmentalist and artist. Her travels have taken her to Africa, New Zealand, Europe, Central and South America and Mexico, her favorite place being West Africa, where everything was recycled as part of the lifestyle.
Linda met her husband, Tom Gillett, also a DAC artist member, on a river trip going down the Dolores, a tributary of the Colorado. A great match made by a friend!
When her father died, Linda discovered his photography from the 1930s. She decided to paint some of those photos. Women in White was her first. She’s now looking to do a woman series. A copy of the original photo is on the back of the painting.
While in the gallery, take a moment to check out Linda’s unique and lovely work.
