HAA artist Sharon Menary currently has a one woman show on display at the Liberty Point Gallery within the Henderson Multigenerational Center. The title of the show is "View the World Through Artist Colors." It was installed on the 16th of this month and will remain available for viewing now through September 17, 2010. The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Henderson Multigenerational Center is located at 250 S. Green Valley Parkway and open Monday through Friday from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm, Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Regarding her work and her philosophy, Sharon says the following:

"I have tried a lot of things in my life but one thing was always present. I wanted to be an artist. I was afraid to let go of traditional thinking—'you need a day job.' When I let go of that limiting thought, I allowed myself, for the first time, to redefine who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. Freedom is scary at first, then exhilarating."

The summer heat has been relentless and many of us have taken the past couple of months to regroup and conserve our creative energy. Rest assured, as the dog days begin to wind down and the promise of a more bearable fall becomes more evident, so too do our creative juices begin to flow.

We took the two most brutal months (July and August) off but HAA general meetings will resume in September. Woohoo! Third Tuesday of the month. Mark your calendars. Details to come.

Karen Tarlton is the most recent addition to the HAA. As of this month, she joins us as an artist member. Her work may be viewed at either of these two websites: and Please join us in welcoming Karen.

The Henderson City Hall changeout took place last week. The show will be up by Monday, August 9th and will hang for six months. Participating HAA artists include Nabila Khanam, Shirley Jeane, Dorothy Slikker, Linda Celona, Yoko Kondo Konopik, and Bernie Fiebranz. Stop in and see the work if you get a chance.
