After retiring from Asheboro Parks and Recreation Pamela Poe Myers began to foster her love of the arts. With a background in commercial graphics, along with many and various art classes over the years, it was not until after her retirement did she begin to focus on her art. Besides her family, her art is her passion and it shows in her work. Pamela's favorite mediums include oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel and clay. Her diversity of mediums and and styles is exciting to see, yet exudes quality and soul. One of her many accomplishments was a watercolor that was chosen by Silver Coast Winery for their 2007 Caberne-Franc Label.

Linda's adventures in floral design began about 20 years ago when she did a piece for their church altar in honor of her Mother-in-Law who had passed away. Her mother had instilled in her the love of flowers and gardening so arranging came as a by-product of the production of "yard flowers and shrubs". She took a chance at the marriage of her older son and his bride almost 12 years ago to do arrangements for their special day, then again for her younger son and his wife several years later. Both were successful, so a leap of faith had her doing a good friend's outdoor wedding reception, and many others have followed. Linda also works with a company during furniture market in High Point.

Nothing Linda does has structure as she prefers the natural style of arranging, using natural materials when she can. Linda states that you "cannot get away from silk for permanent arrangements which never need food or water".

The Artists will be on hand to meet and greet at the opening reception which will be held Friday, January 20, 2011 from 5 p.m to 8 p.m at Circa Gallery, located at 150 Sunset Avenue.
