Courtesy photo Tina Bohlman, left, celebrated professional artist from Waxahachie, demonstrated her watercolor expertise at the Corsicana Art League meeting on May 20. She completed a beautiful farm scene, and a drawing was held with members and guests eligible to win the painting. The lucky name drawn was Marguerite Gorman of Corsicana.

Corsicana has an abundance of talented artists, and an Art Exhibition going on now through the end of June features six fine women artists, including Helen Albritton, Barbara Jones, Gladys Espenson, Deb Miller/Ann Ponder, Stephanie Ford and Margie Taylor. This show is at the Warehouse Living Arts Center Gallery, 119 W. Sixth Ave., Corsicana. (Ring bell at entrance on Main St. for entrance).

There will be a reception held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 6, serving egg rolls, of course. Come meet the local artists, see their paintings, and be inspired.

Warehouse Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 12 noon Fridays.

The Corsicana Art League again this year made a great contribution to the “Mystery Art in Tuckertown” show held in conjunction with Derrick Days. The theme this year was “Pillars of the Past, Celebrating the People, Places and Events of Navarro County.” This event is the Art League’s most important philanthropic endeavor for the year. The Art League was solely responsible for raising over $3,500 for the youth arts of Navarro County. All monies go to VOICE and Navarro Council of the Arts.

Serving as judges this year were Fran Townes, Gina Dieterichs and Jimmy Hale.

First place was awarded to Helen Albritton for “Enter Here.” Margie Taylor had second place with “Black Gold.” Third place winner was J. Wright for “Oil and Bluebonnets,” with honorable mentions going to Debra Gorman for “City Jail,” Deb Miller for “A Call to Arms,” Helen Albritton for “Our Founder,” and Jerry Gregory with “Bluebonnets, Oil and Mesquite Trees.”

Debra Gorman’s painting “City Jail” was the biggest money raiser, going for $275.
