Art Zone: In Our Prime Irene Schomacker and Art Zone students
April 30th through June 2nd.
A reception for the artists is planned for Saturday, May 5th, at the Gallery.
Schomacker retired in 2012 after practicing feline medicine at the Cat Clinic of Johnson county, but she became interested in studying art while in high school. She also took art courses at the Kansas City Art Institute and at Kansas State University, where she received a B.S. in Life Science and obtained her DVM. She continues to study and create art. Her paintings include landscapes and animal portraits.
Schomacker says of the Art Zone, "We come together from all walks of life and are able to learn, grow and expand our horizons."
