Youth Artist, Nathan Pfaff, fourteen-year-old ninth grade student who is home-schooled. He discovered his art medium one summer while doing yard work for a friend, who introduced him to a form of art called Zentangle. This is basically a stress relieving form of drawing that uses repetitive patterns.
Self-proclaimed “rock hound” Ed Kogut is the FRAA Artist of the Month of January. Kogut began learning his craft over 35 years ago, teaching himself the fine art of gem faceting.
Both artists will be featured at a reception at FRAA on December 8th during the Second Saturday Art Walk from 3 – 5 p.m. The community is invited to come and meet these two talented artists, while enjoying holiday refreshments.
