As your blog administrator, I have again had the pleasure of selecting an "ArtChix of the Month", Carol Kennedy. Carol, together with Ruth Malins, devised the concept of holding art shows in the art studios at Sun City Grand during busy weekends in the community. They, together with a few of us hearty and intrepid artists (all female) became known far and wide as the "ArtChix". Carol and Ruth have worked long and hard to make this a successful group and we so appreciate their efforts as we begin another season of ArtChix shows.
