September Artist of the Month: Beverly Fyffe

Beveryl Fyffe joined the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative in 2006. She has four children and eleven grandchildren. Bev comes from Springfield, Ohio where she worked in physical therapy for 37 years. After retirement, Beverly moved to Leisure Lakes and in 1990 a friend talked her into taking up sewing.

She loved sewing so much and accumulated so many finished projects that she and her friend would hold craft shows.

Beverly Fyffe was first selected as our Crafter of the Month for May, 2011. She also served as President for the 2011-2012 year.

Bev is so thankful that she found the Caladium Arts as an outlet for her crafts. She has many items in the store. A partial list of her articles is: vests, table runners, aprons, and placemats most of which are reversible, along with pillows and embroidered towels, many of which will be displayed in our special Artist of the Month display area in our showroom.  As with all of our members, Bev is happy to do custom work as well.

The People Have Spoken!

The People's Choice Award for this year's Caladium Festival is Lake Placid's own Barbara Huff. Her painting of a Shed in a Garden of Caladiums turned out to be the favorite of our voting public. Congratulations Barbara - Well Done!

Another CALADIUM FESTIVAL has come and gone, leaving us many winners ...

The 2014 Poster Contest winner is Linda Donegan from Royal Palm Beach, FL.

Linda is an accomplished watercolor artist who enjoys painting on her own patio surrounded by her beautiful yard filled with plants, flowers and wildlife.

Linda's caladium painting has been selected as the winning artwork for this year’s Caladium Competition and will be featured on next year’s posters and t-shirts.

You will be able to see Linda's winning painting on display at Heartland National Bank in Lake Placid. Congratulations Linda!
