In 2001 things heated up, between them and their art. They partnered with Mitch Everton and purchased Insights Gallery. Insights was started by Annette Williams. Due to health issues she needed to sell the business and she found the perfect trio to purchase it.
Peggy has been playing with art all her life, but in 2002 art became a main focus and more than just a hobby. When she was a small child, the family lived in the Mojave Desert, and when the sand storms came up in the afternoon she would stay inside. Instead of being bored she would draw and paint.

As part of our ARTS for ALL program, Marius Hibbard taught a class on Marbling. All together we had 9 people in the marbling class. It was a success and most people expressed interest in coming again. The whole thing was very friendly and loose. We even had someone playing guitar while we worked and our hosts generously provided snacks and coffee and tea.
Watch for upcoming ARTS for ALL classes.
Thank you to Bret Kelly and his wife at White Loft for letting us use their warehouse space. They were terrific hosts!!
