The Art and Coffee Club which meets each Sunday morning at 9 at Panera Bread in the Sherman Town Center, is perking right along. Founder Steve Black is working on several projects with his GCC art students and the group has new Web site–well new if you haven’t see it–and are involved in a number of projects. Catch them the Denison Fall Festival and possibly putting forth some public art before year’s end. Plaster casting experiments are currently happening in the studio in hopes of creating full-scale plaster figures in the style of artist George Segal. Coffee clubbers were kind enough to smuggle out a photo of Black working on the process.

Most kids draw dogs and bunnies, airplanes and cars: Terry Spearman drew politicians. Actually, he was probably past the bunny stage when he began doing political cartoons for the Durant Daily Democrat, but it seems unlikely that bunnies ever came off his pencil, even when he started.
But the Hot Summer Nights events, like others in Texoma, remind us that we are part of a society. I for one am proud to be part of a community that celebrates itself with awesome programs like this. If you haven’t been, come down and take a look, grab a hot dog, and join in the fun. Its bound to be better than Thursday night TV. But even if its not, just TiVo it!

On a winter day, when the wind whips across the open fields on Schneider Road near Howe, Terry Irvin runs across the back yard to her greenhouse and checks on the hundreds of tiny herbal seedlings that bask under grow lights.
