We wish to extend our thanks to Jean Welty Hestand and Nelda Sheets for their ongoing support of the arts community.
Jean Welty Hestand
Art has been my passion since graduating from the University of Texas with a BFA in in Art. Jean calls her style of painting designed realism, but she has recently enjoyed pure abstraction which is a learning process in its self. She likes to explore in a lot of different techniques and variety of styles. Jean states, “by putting these ideas and influences together, I aspire to create an emotional and creative composition with strong value, color, and simplicity of design.” Jean also has exhibited in Corpus Christi, Kingsville, San Antonio, Round Rock and Georgetown.
Nelda Sheets has worn many hats associated with her art experiences. She taught art to school-age children, (third through twelfth grade) for twelve years. Nelda Sheets is an award winning professional artists with paintings in museums, galleries, private collections, and has presented workshops around the world. She comments that she is “inspired by what she envisions the magical, creative energy of the Universe to be and I want the viewer to share a sense of caring. Caring stimulates creative thought. Creative thought solves problems…makes Planet Earth a better and place to live. The power of art is awesome.”
