CHILDS – Budding artists will show off their work during a reception at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Cobblestone Museum.

Artists are all members of the Cobblestone Sunday Painters’ group, which was taught by Pat Greene of Medina.

Many will be exhibiting their very first paintings, Greene said.

Artists are Valerie Collins, Susan Giorgio, Deb Roberts, Cathy Feldman, Cheryl Keppler, Pat Payne, Jim Bonafini and Sandy Chenelly.

In addition Greene will have five of her paintings in the exhibit.

The Sunday Painters classes are so popular, more will be scheduled in the future, according to Doug Farley, director of the Cobblestone Museum.

“This art exhibit is really amazing, considering many of the students just started painting this year at our Cobblestone Art Classes,” Farley said. “I would have thought the artists were seasoned professionals. Pat Greene has a very hands-on way of helping people get their ideas onto the canvas.”

A grant from the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council helped fund the project.

Greene led workshops on April 8 about composition, on May 6 about “Creating Drama” and on June 3 about “Learning from the Masters.”

Refreshments will be served during the reception on Saturday.

The exhibit will be open during regular museum hours in September and October – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
