Artist of the Year Barb Heagy to be honored at Suzie's Royal Tea
Barb Heagy, the 2015 Artist of the Year, will be honored at the annual Suzie's Roayl Tea, April 26, 2-4 p.m. Suzie Cappa Art Center, 722 St. Joseph. For ticket information, contact Tara Wilcox, 605-718-6207.
Barb is a full-time artist at the center. Studio Manager Carla Julius says that Barb started drawing using stencils, but eventually began designing her own images. Her intricate artwork is full of surprises. Among the geometric patterns, she puts people, houses, plants and other objects. “She works on her art all day,” says Carla. “At the end of the day, she doesn’t want to quit.”
