The church is honored to present these fine artists for your Evening of Art: Joe Garcia earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an advertising/illustration emphasis from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He worked at the City of San Diego as an illustrator and graphic designer for 13 years. During those years he honed his watercolor painting skills and gained a reputation showing his paintings in galleries and national exhibits. Until recently, he taught an adult education watercolor class once a week for over 35 years in Escondido, and he continues to teach workshops in the United States and Europe occasionally. In addition to his watercolors of wildlife he enjoys painting oils on location and in the studio. Locally, Joe exhibits his work at the Santa Ysabel Art Gallery and the Falcon Gallery in Julian. Bettie Rikansrud received her BA from the University of California at Santa Barbara, majoring in art end specializing in printmaking and oil painting. She also studied portraiture at the University of Alaska in Anchorage, and thereafter pursued her studies in private classes. Upon retiring from teaching, she and her husband returned to Julian where Rudy was raised and his parents still live. After many years teaching children, Bettie recalled, "1 was anxious to resume my love of painting, and so I strive to paint daily in the studio or en plein air." Bettie exhibits her work at the Julian Art Gallery on Main Street in town and the Banner Queen Gallery on Highway 78. Linda Stamets is a long time resident of Julian. She enjoys expressing her love of the area in watercolor and acrylics, as seen in her favorite subjects of local landscapes and flowers. She gives credit to Joe Garcia and Stan Goudy for enriching her love of art. Linda's work is on display at the Julian Coffee House, Julian Library, and the Warm Hearth. The artist says, "It's a thrill to take a blank canvas and create my own reflection of my inner world." Marisa McFedries often visited her grandmother in Oklahoma as a child and taught herself to draw the animals and plants on the farm. She graduated from UCSD with a Visual Arts Major and later taught art to youth in juvenile hall and at community centers. Marisa shares, "1 most enjoy sharing art and teaching youth to express themselves through art." Her favorite methods of artistic expression are pen/ink drawings of plants and animals, painting on fabric and other recycled materials, and painting expansive murals that tell a visual story. Jeff Holt is a latecomer to the fine arts. After teaching Civics and American History for many years, he retrained in art history, and the last eight years of his career taught an Advanced Placement Art History course for juniors and seniors at Ramona High School. During that period he rediscovered his love for photography. "1 carry my digital Nikon D-40x everywhere, so that I can shoot at a moment's notice," shares Jeff. He likes a variety of subjects, but landscapes are his most prevalent. It will be interesting to see what Jeff's lens has focused on for the auction!
