Nancy LaRouche and Martha Iszard Co- Chairmen

Item #1 by Sue Gertis:

Sue has been working in clay for the past 12 years as a member of the Jekyll Island Pottery Guild. Prior to that she worked in watercolor, pastels and printmaking as a member of the Charlotte Art League in North Carolina.

The stoneware garden lantern that Sue has donated to our raffle is inspired

by an Asian aesthetic and is both functional and decorative. It may be enjoyed in the home or outside, and will withstand any weather except the occasional hurricane.

Won by Sam Fulton


Item #2 by Laura Kovach:

Laura has donated a beautiful hooked rug designed by Connie Bradley of Wellington, Ohio. The design is aptly named “Potted Posies”. The rug can lie on the floor or be used as a wall hanging. Laura resides in Medina, Ohio and began making hooked rugs in the 70’s after her Mother bought her a box of rug hooking tools at a garage sale. Remembering her Grandmother’s hooked rugs it was a full 40 years after that before she began to hook again. Laura makes her own designs and has included Zentangle designs in her work. We are fortunate to have Laura as a Jekyll Island Arts Association teacher this year.

Won by Kate Hamer

Item #3 by Donna Cummings:

Donna has graciously donated a hand painted metal tray and 4 hand painted wine glasses. A wonderful bottle of wine from Kawartha Country Winery in Buckhorn, Ontario, Canada is also included. What a treat for our raffle! Donna has been painting on glass for over 8 years. She has enjoyed this hobby since her retirement. Donna paints mostly for family and friends, craft sales and weddings

Won by Sister Anna Kearns

Item #4 by John and Gaye Panian:

John and Gaye have donated an exquisite piece of Folk Art for our raffle.” This chapel is our interpretation of the lovely Faith Chapel; it's an original design; each part handmade with love. We feel very lucky to be new residents of Jekyll Island and look forward to making new friends and belonging to such a great community. We were both born and raised in Denver Colorado. We have been job gypsies through the years, and have called California, Missouri and Georgia home. Our greatest accomplishment is raising 3 very wonderful sons and now having 3 beautiful grandchildren to boast about.”

Won by Gail and Dick Rumble

Item #5 by Anne Payne Price:

Ann has created "Poppies" Oil 8x12

The complimentary colors of red and green were used to make the painting "sing," making a pleasing, realistic/abstract rendering. “Actually, painting this subject was very enjoyable mainly because of my love of flowers.”

Ann became seriously interested in painting in 2002 after moving to St Simons. She specializes in concentrating on scenes from the Golden Isles and Europe. She attends workshops, visits art exhibits and museums. Ann is a juried member of Glynn Arts Association, The Coastal Georgia Artists Guild and the Jekyll Arts Association. Ann and her husband, Clark, live on St Simons with their West Highland Terrier, Lizzie; and have two children and five grandchildren.

Won by Carol and Howard Fisher
