Well, our U.S. Senators brought home their grades, and although they weren't graded on their paintings or musical scales, many managed to fail the arts. And some failed while the other… Continue

Featured Artist: R. Michael Wommack, pastel drawings

When Michael Wommack graduated from art school over 30 years ago there was a recession, no teaching jobs available, but he took his skills to the streets -- painting murals, race cars, vans, using an airbrush on anything that would hold paint.
