Featured Artist for April

Joyce Geerlings-Griffith

A reception will be held

Saturday April 1st,  4:00-6:00 P.M. 

HAA will provide punch

Joyce’s love of art started as a small child, scribbling with crayons, sitting on the floor with her father who loved to draw.  Her parents encouraged her creativity by sending her to art school at the University of Iowa where she received a B.A. in Art History.

After graduation  she received commissions to draw historic houses in Waterloo, Iowa, but as a young woman, still  felt obligated to work in the family feed business doing public relations work. And that was where she met her husband, Bill. They married, and he joined the company where they worked together until they moved to the South. Joyce’ years in Iowa were followed by many years and adventures in other places from Florida to the Pacific Northwest, and many places in between. And many years later, she feels fortunate to have his children, Gregory and Pamela, and Gregory’s wife, Joyce, still in her life.

An invitation from her cousin Kathleen Anderson in Sierra Vista brought Joyce to this Southwest Paradise surrounded on all sides by mountains. She joined the Huachuca Art Association in 2002 and since then has enjoyed painting on Thursdays and teaching art to children.

Joyce considers the artists at HAA friends, and feels fortunate to belong to what she calls “the best art group in the country”.

Next reception Sat. May 6th  4pm to 6pm
