Member Artist Spotlight


Friends’ members are eligible to apply for an Member Spotlight which is displayed on the east wall of the second floor lobby.

Showcases run for four weeks. We generally book 9 to 12 months out.


Trudy Vrchota is the featured artist through August 16. 

Trudy has been a mosaic artist for over 10 years. " I love anything that sparkles and shines so working with glass, china and beads feeds that love completely. I choose happy subjects because every day we all face the realities of life. I find that flowers, birds, nature and beautiful colors help balance our lives in a positive way. I think that art should lift our spirits and feed our souls."

About 4 years ago she began taking drawing classes to my creative interests. Trudy states " I have been truly fortunate to have Jim Clark at the Hopkins Center for the Arts as an instructor. He has challenged me to attempt subjects, and to use tools and mediums that I would have not pursued on my own."

Stop by and see Trudy’s work. She will have an Artist Reception on Saturday, August 15 from 6-8pm.
