Oct. 2012 meeting

McKeesport Art Group hosts Gail Bodkin tonight at its monthly meeting. The meeting at 7:30 is in the art room of McKeesport Area High School, 1960 Eden Park Blvd., and is free and open to the public.

Bodkin began her art career in 1972 when she began painting in oil. This flowed into other mediums, watercolor, acrylics, mixed medium, etc. She was at one time the owner of several arts and craft stores and a paint studio.

Bodkin traveled the country representing distributors and manufactuers of art mediums sold in her stores. Her tour included teaching art using those products. She aligned with local TV personality Josie Carey in producing a series called, “Lunch, Learn and Diet.”

McKeesport Art Group is inviting interested artists in the Mon-Yough area to become members. For more information, contact Jan Catalogna at jacat99@aol.com or (412) 469-2710.
