Margaret has a secondary degree in Art Education. She taught art for four years in Liberia, West Africa and then taught art for 36 years for the D.O.D. in Germany. She has had students of all ages.
Currently she is working in clay making mosaics, pots, tiles, and magnets. She also paints in Guache and makes cards.
Margaret's work reflects her love of wildlife and bright, bold colors and surface designs. Her years spent living in Africa and teaching art to a wide range of children has influenced her by seeing their honest and spontaneous drawings and paintings.
Her artwork shows a special moment frozen in time – a flash of bright light and color.
Open Mic Poetry & Music Fusion
Final Friday, April 25, 6:00-8:00PM
Family friendly, kids welcome, refreshments provided! This casual and fun evening showcases the poetry of the hardy and the fearless who have great, good gumption to air their muse in public.
Featuring original writings by this one, that one, and the next one willing to sign up when they come in the door.
Recite from memory or read from the page, either way, as long as you are prepared to enjoy yourself and the company of Goldendale’s literati, nouveau and not so nouveau.
Original musical numbers work, too. Remember this is both music and poetry fusion. So unfuse yourself from your chair on the last Friday of this month and come see what it’s all about!
KVGD Poetry Contest Awards to Be Announced at Final Friday!
Final Friday is co-hosted by KVGD-LP FM, Goldendale Community Radio.
