This interview was conducted and written by Board Secretary, Rachael Berdine
Every month here at the Winkler Gallery and Art Education Center, we honor one of our member artists as Artist of the Month. All of our artists produce stunning work of all varieties that pass through a juried selection process to be displayed at the gallery. The Artist of the Month allows us to zoom in on them one at a time. For August 2017, the honor goes to Cora Smith.
We sat down with Cora during one of her volunteer shifts at the gallery for an interview where we talked about her religion, the hardest parts of being an artist, and where her inspiration comes from.
RACHAEL: Tell me a little bit about yourself.
CORA: Well, I love animals. I feel like I’m an artist first, I guess. Which is a sad thing because I’m a mom and a grandma, and I love being those things, but I feel like I’m an artsy mom and an artsy grandma. I came from a huge family. I’m from the city.
We share opportunities and news here on the Winkler Gallery and Art Education Center Blog.
