Boddy House Art Gallery.
The La Crescenta artist began her journey in art as a child, and
thanks God for the talent he has given her, she said. She received
art instruction at the University of Nebraska and later at Glendale
Community College. She volunteered her illustrator skills for PTA and
Girl Scouts projects and then became an instructor at McGroarty Art
Center in Tujunga, teaching oil painting, drawing and design,
calligraphy and jewelry making.
Her paintings are on display in Montrose at Village Artisans and
her own studio, Forbes Art and Frames, where she welcomes spectators
to watch her paint from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
The studio is at 2302 Florencita St.
Other artists displaying with Forbes at the Boddy House are Margot
Lennartz and Jim Yurk.
In her exhibit "California Colors," Lennartz shows a collection of
oil paintings including plein-air landscapes of sea, mountain and
desert scenes from throughout the state.
Yurk, a potter whose works are functional and decorative, displays
unusual stoneware impressions of wall-hung flowers.
